Disney+’s new Marvel TV show She-Hulk features super villain Tatiana, played by the ever-talented and often outrageous Jameela Jamil, who tries to trademark and steal the She-Hulk name from the real She-Hulk, lawyer Jennifer Walters. In real life, the actress showed up in all her red-haired over-the-top glamor at New York’s Fashion Week crashing Kourtney Kardashian’s Boohoo fashion show. She also went to a nearby MacDonald’s in Times Square in costume as well.
In an article in the Hollywood Reported, Jamil seemed to enjoy her NY fashion week experience, “I took it quite far. … I went to the L’Officiel party. I partied with Dixie D’Amelio. I went to Times Square, and I got on the big, iconic red staircase and posed up a storm. I went to McDonald’s, all in this couture.”
She also expressed how glad she was to have this role in that interview. “I was a little Indian Pakistani kid, and there weren’t people who looked like me playing superheroes in the comic books or on the screen. We weren’t even playing love interests; we weren’t really there. We were just being mocked by white people pretending to be us based on stereotypes. So I never could have imagined that this would happen now. I wish I could get in a time machine and go back to tell my little self that one day, representation would be there and it would be her.”
