Da jeg blev tilbudt den del af Sandy i fedt, I did not think that the movie would be so loved. It’s been 40 years, and people still get up to me everywhere, and I go to tell me that it’s their favorite movie.
The whole experience of doing it was as fun as you could imagine – sing and dance, of course, but just hang out with John [Travolta] and the rest of the casting. Det var som at være i gymnasiet igen. Jeg elskede alle mine kostumer, især læderjakken og bukserne, jeg havde i slutningen af filmen.
I can remember going into the wardrobe with our costume designer, Albert Wolsky, and tried out for the first time. Jakken passer perfekt, og den røde foring var stor. The pants were also amazing, but because they actually were from the 50s, the zipper was broken so I had to sew in them.

When I went out on the set for them for the first time, I completely got the reaction – all holdt op– because I was contrary to something I had carried before. After we had packed the movie, I was lucky enough to hold on costume. I have used the jacket for a few performances, but I have not tried the pants since (I do not want to know how they will look like me now!).

For at fejre filmens 40 års jubilæum har jeg besluttet, at det er det rigtige tidspunkt at gøre noget godt og tilbyde dem til gavn for Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Center i Melbourne, Australien. Det er spændende at vide at kostume vil have et større formål. fedt changed my life, and now it can help change the lives of others as well.
