Muscles are always seen as a show of power. Although the journey is indeed painful, some people criticize others for their lack of exercise. She-Hulk starrer Tatiana Maslany is no exception from the criticism of fans for the apparent lack of muscles in the protagonist’s body. The actress gets candid about the opinions of people on other people’s bodies.
She-Hulk is too focused on the outside world
Talking to AP Entertainment, the actress found herself on the topic of people critiquing her body for the lack of muscles that the character has compared to what they expected to be. In the interview, the actress said the following,
“There has been critique that her body’s not muscular, and to me, I kind of find that to be an interesting conversation to have, too. There is an opportunity here for a very muscular woman, which is something that we don’t often see on screen, and I feel people in that desire, I feel that.”
The Orphan Black actress continued,
“So much of her is about the perception from the outside, and so much of her is about the way people look at her differently depending on which body she’s presenting at that time. Jen Walters is received very differently than She-Hulk is, and that outward response and feedback tells her something about herself.”
