I went on a liquid diet to fit into Cinderella corsets: Lily


Lily-JamesActress Lily James has revealed she opted for a liquid diet to fit into corset of the gowns for her fantasy film ‘Cindrella’.

The 25-year-old actress said it was discomforting to have a meal while having the waist-clinching garment on, reported E! Online.

“I think I may be trying to get sympathy a bit there. I’m being a bit over the top. When (the corset) was on we would be on continuous days so we wouldn’t stop for lunch or a lovely tea like this?you’d be sort of eating on the move.

“In that case, I couldn’t untie the corset. So if you ate food it didn’t really digest properly and I’d be burping all afternoon in (Richard Madden)’s face, and it was just really sort of unpleasant. I’d have soup so that I could still eat but it wouldn’t get stuck,” she said.

Luckily, the corset for Lily’s enchanting blue ball gown was only used for a small part of filming the live-action Disney movie, which hits theatres on March 13.
