When Alex Borstein posted the primary photograph from Season three of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” she groaned about having “swamp ass” whereas on set in Florida.
However Bortstein didn’t go into any extra element — till Web page Six caught up along with her on the opening of the “Mrs. Maisel” exhibit on the Paley Heart for Media.
“Swamp ass happens when you are in wool pants that have a lining, a leather jacket, leather boots, a full shirt and a hat in Miami heat. That’s when swamp ass happens. It’s when a lot moisture gathers in your nether-region,” Borstein, 48, advised us. “Don’t pretend like you don’t know what swamp ass is. The New York Post was built on swamp ass.”
Whereas Rachel Brosnahan’s high-fashion appears are a trademark on the present, Borstein’s character wears virtually an similar outfit in each scene, consisting of slacks, suspenders, a striped shirt with the identical leather-based jacket and a newsboy cap — not precisely Florida-appropriate apparel.
“We shot on Thursday night until 2 a.m. in the theater district,” she advised us. “It was muggy out, there was a little bit of a rainstorm. My pants were sticking to me, literally. At the end of the night, I turned to Stephanie, who is a dear friend, as well as my wardrobe mistress, and I was like, ‘These have to be washed. They have to, they are so disgusting.’ She was like, ‘We don’t have time! I’ll hand wash them.’ At 2 in the morning, she was about to kill me.”
She added of her garments, “Many times they have doubles, but sometimes they don’t. They have a spray wash. We do our best to keep me hygienic.”
