Partway by the sequence, when Mates was additionally on TV, we have been like, ‘Wait a minute, take a look at Jennifer Aniston’s hair — everybody loves it. They stated, ‘Perhaps we must always try to make you appear like her.’ So I went to Jennifer’s hairstylist and obtained the minimize. Nevertheless it was an entire debacle once we tried to do it on the present. They actually tried for 3 hours to straighten my hair like hers. It was so full and poofy that it regarded like a mushroom [laughs]. The entire thing was only a catastrophe, so [the producers] determined to simply preserve it curly. They have been like, ‘It is a downside, we have to discover somebody who can deal with her hair!’
