Uma Thurman got crafty on set of her new flick “The Con Is On”.
The indie con-man flick starring Thurman, Sofia Vergara, and Tim Roth, ran on a tight budget, so Thurman got creative when it came time to change costumes.
“So I could have privacy in order to change… I took two huge pieces of white Styrofoam board and taped them together and made a screen around a couch, just with enough room to stand in,” she revealed to Entertainment Weekly. “Then I took markers and drew a window like a trailer with a little person peeking out the window [laughs]. I drew a doorway and some flowers on it, too. I wish I had a picture of it. I made myself basically a trailer out of two boxes [that once held] a refrigerator.”
Thurman continued, “Even though some people might think it sounds miserable, it reminds me of the beginning of my career, when you start as a scrapper and nobody gives a damn about you… It was a challenge getting the movie done, like a major cause, even though it’s a light screwball comedy. It was a saga to get it to the screen!” she remembers, savouring the tooth-and-nail fight that made the movie happen. “I think that [humour] is how we stuck together!”
“The Con Is On” is now playing in select theaters. Watch the full trailer above.
