Laura Prepon Talks ‘Orange Is The New Black’By: Lindsay McCane - June 23, 2014
Laura Prepon stunned the crowd in a cleavage bearing Alice & Olivia gown at the 2014 Critics’ Choice TV awards on Thursday, June 19.
Prepon must be getting used to showing off her body since joining the cast of Netflix’s original series Orange Is The New Black. Laura plays the role of Alex Vause, a former badass drug dealer and love interest of Piper Chapman, who is played by Laura’s co-star Taylor Schilling.
While speaking to E! on the red carpet, Laura opened up about the show and how she has adjusted to so many sexually charged scenes.
“Honestly, Taylor and I are so comfortable with each other—Thank God!” Prepon said. Season two of OITNB just recently premiered on Netflix in June, and season three is already in the works. Laura revealed that she and Schilling would be filming a major sex scene on Monday and was very happy that they are so relaxed around each other. “We’re like, ‘Girl, thank God we’re so comfortable!” she said, and then added, “I can’t say much.”
Laura admits that all the women on the show were originally very self conscious about their bodies. However, they quickly realized that they are all different sizes and shapes, and started feeling more comfortable being naked in front of each other. “All the women on the show are different shapes, sizes, colors and creed—everything! You really embrace who you are, your curves and everything,” Prepon said. “So if anything on this show, it’s the most comfortable I’ve ever been because all of us just really embrace who we are. It’s wonderful.”
While at the event, US Weekly also got the chance to talk to Prepon and how she felt about sitting on the sidelines for most of the second season’s episodes. She explained that her schedule was very hectic while the filming was taking place for season two, but that she had worked it out for her to be in every episode of season three.
“It sucked because [show creator] Jenji Kohan and I wanted me to be in it more, but with the schedule, it didn’t happen,” Prepon explained. “I was so bummed out. But I handled it, so I’m in every [episode] in season three. It is so good.”
