"Well, we really went for it. I said, 'Listen, I'm always playing these maids, I always gotta gain 40 pounds for a role.' I said, 'I wanna be sexy. I'm pulling out all the stops.' So, I went for it... and threw my back out. The director said 'Slam her up against the wall and really go for it, pull your pants down.' I said, 'OK, I'm gonna go for it.' He slams me up against the wall, six people are behind the wall, holding it up, it's shaking. It sounds sexy, it really wasn't,” she said on show.
