One of my first calls after casting Brendan was to my makeup artist,'I asked him, "Can we do something that’s realistic?"  Because if it’s going to look like a joke, then we shouldn’t do it.' He added that he wanted to change the perception of obese people on screen who are 'generally written as bad guys or as punch lines' - to create a 'fully worked-out character.'Aronofsky also told The Los Angeles Times’ The Envelope podcast about his work with  the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC), saying: 'They really feel this is going to open up people’s eyes.
