Emma Thompson hated wearing "industrial" underwear underneath her extravagant costumes while filming Cruella.

The 62-year-old actress plays Baroness von Hellman in the new Disney flick, alongside Emma Stone as the iconic villain, and Thompson disliked having to wear undergarments after ditching them years ago.

"I don't like wearing underwear full stop. I stopped wearing underwear a long time ago. It's not my scene. I don't like comfortable underwear. I find comfortable underwear uncomfortable," she said during an interview on U.K. TV show Lorraine, describing the shapewear as "industrial".

The two-time Oscar winner said the underwear on-set felt "like a torture item", and joked she looked like a tube of toothpaste when she tried to get herself into the garments.

"If you squeeze it hard enough things will come up and go down and make the shapes. But it's like you're dealing with a Plasticine person. If you put Mr Blobby into that corset, he would look good," Thompson quipped.

She previously spoke about playing the character in the upcoming film and told British Vogue that she was very unlike the chic and fashionable Baroness she portrays onscreen.

"I am uncomfortable trying to look slim and fashionable because I am not, and now it's allowed that I am not. I fancy a bit of fun," she shared, noting that she prefers to pose rather than perform.

Cruella is set to be released in cinemas and on Disney+ from 28 May.
