“It was fun, it was really fun,” Vanessa told E! News about her transformation for the movie. “Just because its so rare that you get to do that. I put on 15 pounds, ate whatever I wanted. I’m not complaining. I cut off all my hair, which really set the tone. It was such a liberating thing and kinda reminded me — if I can do that, I can do this.”

Vanessa added, “And then, I just kinda tried to make myself as ugly as possible, whether that was the way that I walked or my mannerisms or the tone of my voice. I wanted her to be strong and tough but broken because that’s what she is. You just see her transform into someone who actually finds love and really feels it for the first time and there’s nothing more powerful than finding love.”

FYI: Vanessa is wearing an Armani dress.
