Beanie Feldstein still continues to wear jeans around the house during lockdown.
While the vast majority of people have ditched restrictive clothing and have been spending the coronavirus lockdown days in comfortable sweatpants, the Booksmart star hasn’t given up her jeans because putting on “real clothes” makes her feel like her normal self.
“I’m someone who puts on jeans,” she admitted to The Hollywood Reporter. “Jeans but no shoes is what I’ve learned about myself. When I work out I’m wearing workout shoes, but the rest of the day is purely an UGG slipper. And not always jeans, sometimes a dress or skirt, but I have to put on real clothes, even if I’m not doing a Zoom or seeing somebody virtually.
“I just don’t feel like myself unless I shower, wash my hair, put on jeans. It makes me feel better, and then it’s fun at the end of the day to be like, ‘Oh I get to put on sweatpants now.'”
The 26-year-old also takes part in trivia nights over Zoom with her friends and they are all required to dress up in accordance with that week’s theme using pieces from their existing wardrobe.
“You have to come in costume, too… My friends definitely have a flair for the dramatic,” she joked. “Obviously we’re all at home and we don’t have access to the real costumes, but it’s really fun to see how inventive people can get. Last night was pop divas and there was an amazing one with Beyonce’s headdresses made out of a visor that my friend decorated. People get very creative.”
The Lady Bird star is currently in lockdown at her parents’ Los Angeles home, where she has been doing virtual press for her new movie How to Build a Girl.
