Saoirse Ronan's Mary Queen of Scots costume 'changed her shape' for a month after filming wrapped

‘It’s squashing your insides!’

DURING A RECENT interview with Seth Meyers, Saoirse Ronan revealed that her entire shape changed during the filming of Mary Queen of Scots due to her character’s reliance on corsets.

Indeed, up to a month after wrapping the shoot, Saoirse said she was still displaying curves she hadn’t had prior to filming the highly-anticipated movie.

When you’ve been wearing them like we did for months, you take them off at the end of the job and your shape has changed.

And according to Saoirse, it doesn’t bounce back after the wrap party either.

Like I didn’t have any curves before, and then I took it off and for about a month I was like ‘Aw, look at that! A little hourglass!’

But the change wasn’t permanent, and the actress soon saw the return of her previous shape.

Gesturing with her hands to indicate a straight up-and-down figure, she said: “It just went back to that.”

While Seth seemed surprised that the garment could have such an impact long after it’s been removed, Saoirse schooled him on its engineering.

It’s squashing your insides! And we’d have it on for 12 hours a day and it’s tight! Corsets are tight. So yeah, it actually does change your shape for a little bit.

Oh, and as soon as she realised it sounded like she was promoting a type of garment often seen splashed across Instagram, she quickly clarified:

Don’t wear them. Don’t do it. Stay in school. Don’t do corsets.

Roger that.
