While the look can be a startling contrast to the glamorous red carpet style for which the former Gossip Girl star can be known, the idea’s all part of her role as a drug-addicted prostitute inside the brand new film The Rhythm Section.
The movie can be currently filming in Dublin, Ireland, as well as follows Lively’s character as she makes a shocking discovery about the death of her family as well as attempts to uncover a conspiracy.
The actress recently discussed her role inside the film as well as the double standard of actresses having to always be likeable on film during Vanity Fair‘s “The Limelight” podcast.
“You always see of which thing in movies where if a woman can be a prostitute or a sex worker, you always think, ‘I don’t want the guys to be grossed out by her,'” Lively said. “We have to still make her kind of sexy … tragically sexy, although you know, music video.”
“If you drive down skid row, of which’s not what you see,” she continued. “of which’s not the truth. So the idea’s actually important to us to show a woman who society has written off, as well as society has forgotten about.”
