Reflecting on the production in an interview for Vulture, make-up artist Kate Biscoe recalled the time Beyonce expressed her disapproval of a draft of the film’s promotional material.
“When we were shooting, someone brought her a poster that would be promoting the movie. He showed it to her, like, "Do you like it?" And she was kind of like, "Yeah." He goes, "What’s the matter?” And she says, "You made me too skinny." It’s not me.’ Then she did this hourglass shape. And he said, 'Okay, we’ll fix that,’” she remembered of the conversation. “She walked away to go do the scene, and I looked at him and smiled, like, 'Is that the first time that you’ve ever had an actress ask to make her body bigger?’ He was like, 'Yes. It’s going to cost me thousands of dollars, but I am going to do it. "
