JOHN C. REILLY wore a fat suit and facial prosthetics to play old-school comedian OLIVER HARDY in the upcoming movie "Stan & Ollie".
Sometimes, Reilly would take breaks while still wearing the makeup and the fat suit, and he noticed a real difference in how he was treated by people who didn't know he was an actor in costume.
He says, quote, "It didn't feel good, I must say. Someone walking by, typically [they would look away] as if they didn't want to see you. Like, 'Oh, it's quite sad. I'll embarrass him if I look at him too much.'
"So you end up feeling like, 'Hey, I'm a human being! I'm here, you know!'"
