Debby Ryan defends Insatiable's controversial use of a fatsuit, points out Friends also used one
Ryan tells Teen Vogue she initially feared that her fatsuit “would almost be done in parody like in Friends," referring to Monica Geller's character. “There was a point where (creator Lauren Gussis) and I are like, ‘If at any point this is funny, if at any point people laugh, we’re not doing it.’ We’re not doing the show that we’re trying to do,” Ryan said. “We’re just trying to portray an origin story. We’re trying to showcase that.”
