In an interview with The A.V. Club, Allison Janney was asked how she got into the physical condition for her mysterious and butt-kicking role in “Lou.” At first, she said that she wasn’t really working out when approached to play the part, and said the biggest issue with the start of her training regiment was getting her stamina up to par. She then said that she had a specific set of exercises, but struggled to show them to the interviewer, and added, “But these low twisty things, my thighs got like steel from doing them. [Fight choreographer Daniel Bernhardt would]┬ámake me do 150 or 200, 300 a day of these twist things that it was brutal. And I’d work out with a trainer, too.”

She continued, “So it was hard, but I also loved it and I knew it was a job and I was getting paid to do it. There’s something that’s nice about working out when you get paid to do it. I felt like, ‘it’s my job,’ and I’m going to do this and I wish I could find someone to pay me to work out just in my regular life.” These exercises must have been intense, because Janney appears totally transformed in “Lou.” Of course, as she mentions, considering yourself being paid to work out probably acts as a great motivator, and it really is a shame that doesn’t generally happen for the rest of us. Still, the character of Lou represents an interesting notch in Janney’s career, and one that will not soon be forgotten by longtime fans.
