In an exclusive interview posted on the official “Jeopardy!” YouTube channel, the former “Big Bang Theory” star, who also holds a doctorate in neuroscience, talked about the stylish fashion choices she made for the show.
“This is actually something that I felt instantly really passionate about,” she said. “Much as women are accomplished in many fields and we’ve made so many changes in how we are represented and how we are seen, it’s by in large a confusing time I think still for women in terms of what we’re expected to look like and what people think when we dress a certain way or don’t.”
Bialik, 45, a mother of two, had a certain look in mind when it came to selecting her wardrobe for her gig as a guest host, wanting to look like the “academic that I was trained to be,” she said.
She added: “I wanted to choose things that were flattering and that I feel comfortable in and as an actress, you almost never get to have those things. And I also wanted to bring a little bit of flair, but not too much.”
Bialik will host “Jeopardy!” through June 11.
