Lively's husband, Ryan Reynolds, has certainly taken notice of his wife's transformation for the thriller film. Posting a photo of Lively on set where she appears disheveled in frayed purple sweatpants, a red sweater, brown puffer jacket and blue beanie, Reynolds quipped on Twitter: "#nofilter."
The actress recently discussed her role in the film and the double standard of actresses having to always be likable in movies. "You always see that thing in movies where if a woman is a prostitute or a sex worker, you always think, ‘I don't want the guys to be grossed out by her,'" Lively said while on Vanity Fair's "The Limelight" podcast. "We have to still make her kind of sexy ... tragically sexy, but you know, music video."
She continued, "If you drive down skid row, that's not what you see. That's not the truth. So it's really important to us to show a woman who society has written off, and society has forgotten about.”
