‘Beautiful Mrs. Maisel’ star on her empowering role
‘Beautiful Mrs. Maisel’ star Rachel Brosnahan talks about her new Amazon show and how the role of an empowered woman can change perceptions
As the star as “Wonderful, Mrs. Anderson,” Rachel Brosnahan has had to “bare” for the series, and now the actress is open about appearing nude for her role as Midge.
“I get very frustrated with gratuitous nudity,” Brosnahan, 27, told Modern Luxury for the September issue, which she graces the cover of.
“It is tired and distracts from the telling of stories, but I found the pilot’s relationship with nudity, because I think it’s funny,” Brosnahan explained.
“It’s not about sex or sexual,” she noted. “[Mosquito] hitting a bottom, they could not have imagined.”
Rachel Brosnahan talks about nudity and ‘baring all’ for the ‘Wonderful Mrs. Anderson’ in a new interview with Modern Luxury.
Since the Amazon’s first series broadcast in 2017, she won a Golden Globe for Best Tv Series, and Brosnahan also took home a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Tv Series last year. However, the star, who previously revealed she was very sick with the flu on the day of her audition for the award-winning show, said she believes sick may have helped her land the role.
“When you’re not feeling well, or you’re more than exhausted, all of your inhibitions fall away,” she explained to the outlet, adding that “you have some of your most fearless work because you have nothing to lose.”
As for when Brosnahan decided that she wanted her love for acting into a career?
“I think it was something I always knew, but in high school I realized that I never really wanted to do something different,” she shared.
“I loved performing and telling stories, and they were the only thing I was interested in. At that time, I started with it in an active way with a view to a future career.”
