We always pegged Krysten Ritter as the type of girl we’d want to chill with, and she just confirmed that for us. In an interview with Time about her new Netflix series Jessica Jones, Ritter explains why you won’t catch this superhero-turned-private-investigator in heels. On the understandable need to fight crime in practical clothing, Ritter said:
“It’s hard to fight in high heels or even jeans that are too tight. You can’t kick in skinny, skinny jeans. And I don’t know about you, but I can’t walk in high heels. I literally wear them only when I have a red carpet to go to and take them off immediately afterwards. I can be in them for maybe 45 minutes and that’s painful. I just can’t do it. It kills my feet and hurts my back. So I’m all about practical shoes.”
We totally hear her on that one, and we’re definitely not complaining about a female lead not being forced to run away from villains or dinosaurs in high heels. If you ever want to have a barefoot boozey slumber party with us, Krysten, our door is always open.
