Jameela Jamil talks about her experience being on She-Hulk
While speaking with Deadline Hollywood at the San Diego Comic-Con, the actress shared her experience playing Titania – the antagonist of the series. She told the interviewer:
“I mean, I just didn’t even audition for [Titania] when it came out because I was like, ‘there’s no way I’m gonna be able to run or fight or do anything that involves… unless the character just stays in a bed I won’t be able to do anything. And [Marvel Studios] convinced me to come to Atlanta and spend six months there and train six days a week, lift weights, and do kung fu and jujitsu and learn how to fight in a harness up in the sky. I have done things I never thought my body could do.”
She even shared that the role made her feel better about herself:
“And it has changed the way that I feel about myself. It has changed my gate, like, the way I stand. It has changed my confidence and it has changed the way I feel about my body since I gained weight for the role. I wanted to get bigger, I wanted to get stronger. I wanted to take up more space, and that is not something that I have ever felt encouraged to do in this industry before. And so to have Marvel be so encouraging of that and help me with that was incredibly cool, and it has changed my own feeling about wanting to be bigger and stronger and wanting to take up more space.”
