Meryl Streep may did not have the most comfortable costumes on the set of ‘Into The Woods’ but she admits that her character couldn’t have been completed without the help of those unique dresses. Oscar-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood was behind the fairytale musical and she again teamed up with director Rob Marshal after ‘Chicago’ and ‘Memoirs Of A Geisha’, reported Contactmusic.
“Some of the most productive character work was working with Colleen. Finding what she was telling me about the character through the clothes. She thinks like an actor; so how the change would be for the witch was incredible, how she blended me into the gnarled…. everything. “It was certainly an effective accomplishment for Atwood, who designed both a ragged, black gown for the wrinkled old crone side of her character, and a tighter fitting, plush number for when her magic makes her a little more glamorous,” Streep said.
Streep, 65, even admitted that so much detail went into designing the somewhat uncomfortable costume, that there were features on it that were barely noticeable. “There were things that you can’t even see really in the film but I knew about. Just where the costume stuck into me and made me miserable, that was all character,” she added.
