While you watch the video you will find that the voice is a little off. Why? The television host, producer explained to Entertainment Tonight in an exclusive interview, “I worked hard on her speech pattern, but not so much the accent because I didn’t want it to be an imitation or a caricature.”

The actress also revealed how the casting came about “My agent received a phone call, saying, ‘David O. Russell wants to meet Melissa.’ It was all very hush hush and top secret, and I went, ‘Okay.’”

Melissa shared that the role gives room to her emotions more than she had wanted: “I can’t watch myself, and especially like that. I think I was so focused on the details and trying to do a good job that it never hit me that I took this crazy emotional risk until I got home and went, ‘What did I just do?’”
