As per the interview made comments, Melanie also said that, she, at that time, was as thin as could she possibly be. However, the body shape she has, it was never enough.
She ended up recalling that, a lot of Spanx was put by people on me when it came to the wardrobe fittings. They were also quite disappointed on seeing me. The costume designer, at times they, used to be like, ‘none informed about girls as you, present here’.
