"So I'm afraid of heights, and I just walked into the set. I was told I was going 15 feet in the air. It was 50 feet."
After explaining her situation, the Screen Actors Guild Award winner showed her harness, of which she seemed pessimistic. She wore a floral dress identical to that of her lookalike stunt woman.

She then showed footage of herself and the stunt woman standing on a platform as it was lifted up. Fear was visible in Cox's face, but like a true actor, she pulled off the scene brilliantly, with the help of the stunt woman.
