Emma Stone believes costume designer and “Cruella” hairstylist and makeup artist did “at least half of the work” for her in the film.
The 32-year-old actress portrayed Estella “Cruella” de Vil in the 101 Dalmatians prequel, and she admitted that much of the aspiring fashion designer’s character was about what she wore and how she looked, so she credited the behind the scenes crew for their hard work.
She said, “Jenny Beavan, our costume designer, has been doing an amazing job for so many years, as has Nadia Stacey, who has done the hair and makeup.
“This particular movie, of all the movies I’ve shot, I felt like the three of us were creating the character together.
“Without this outward-looking version of Estella / Cruella, especially since she’s a designer, so much of what she feels internally is expressed through her clothes, hairstyle and makeup, they were doing this work for me. .
“It was nothing I could have imagined as an actor, so they did at least half of my work for me, for sure.
“And they just squashed it. It was so much work on both of their parts.”
Stone admitted it was “wild” to have to change her look to represent Estella – who becomes the evil criminal and Dalmatian fur lover Cruella – so often, but she found it “exciting” to work with artists. also talented.
Speaking on ‘The Jess Cagle Podcast’, she added: “There were over 40 looks for Estella / Cruella, it was just nonstop. It was like every day.
“There were days when we changed four times, it was wild.
“But they were amazing. It’s exciting to work with artists like that.”
