Alison Brie was on Late Night yesterday and Seth Meyers asked her about doing Community and Mad Men at the same time. Somehow she turned the conversation in to the type of undergarments they wore for the advertising drama.
Then she explained that it was not easy to go to the bathroom in them because she was not used to wearing all of that extra material that women used to wear back then.
One day, when she first started on the show, she had to use the little ladies room, but they needed her on the set. She didn’t want to cause trouble, and thought she could hold it in. She couldn’t, so she asked them if she could stop and use the rest room. She moved everything around, but not enough. As she started to go, she realized that it wasn’t going where it was supposed to go. Instead it went all over her underwear and girdle. Since she was needed on the set five minutes ago, she had to shoot the scene in those wet clothes.
During a break from filming, the wardrobe lady asked her if she was uncomfortable in that attire. Brie told her what happened and the lady told her happen more times than you would think.
You will never watch Mad Men the same because you will be wondering if this is when it happened to Christine Hendricks or January Jones.
