Alison Brie is a whiz with costumes.
The actress, who played Trudy Vogel on “Mad Men,” said she had a “peeing incident” on set of the period drama when she had to wear a girdle.
Brie revealed on Justin Long’s “Life is Short” podcast on Wondery that the restrictive undergarment was like “biker shorts that go all the way up to your ribs” — that also has a “small hole” in them.
“I didn’t know for the first season that you weren’t supposed to wear underwear under them because they are underwear,” Brie said, adding that on one occasion she rushed to the bathroom before shooting a scene, “and tried to pull the hole open, but I didn’t pull my underwear to the side so I’m peeing and not hearing it hit the bowl and then I just feel warmth.”
She added, “It was full pee. I went straight to set and just dabbed it with a bunch of toilet paper. Because they’re waiting on me … I don’t want to lose my job.”
