For the new movie, “The Backup Plan” the character Jennifer plays isÂ inseminatedÂ and in one scene she is looking at her pregnant body when her boyfriend walks in. Jennifer wanted the scene to be realistic so she requested that an 8 month pregnant woman be her butt double.
â€œI just thought that a naked pregnant woman checking herself out would just be so funny,â€ Jennifer said. â€œI actually wish there was more of it in the movie. It was my idea to put it in because I remember being pregnant and marveling at the hugeness of my body, you know, like, looking at the mirror at all angles, but itâ€™s something you do privately.â€
â€œI really like that scene â€¦ and I thought we should have a real pregnant lady double with the real pregnant body do it. So thatâ€™s what we did. Thatâ€™s an eight months pregnant woman.â€
â€œYou talk about casting challenges,â€ says director Alan Poul. â€œThat was the the most uncomfortable, to ask these pregnant women to show us their bodies.â€
â€œBut they did and they were fine with it,â€ adds Jennifer. â€œAnd they were beautiful.â€
