Hancock County native Jessica Favre's twins aren't the only South Mississippians who landed a role in the upcoming film "Bad Moms." Former Miss Mississippi and D'Iberville native Christine Kozlowski will also be seen in the comedy that stars Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Kathryn Hahn, Christina Applegate and Jada Pinkett Smith.

Kozlowski, who is an actress living in New Orleans, said she actually plays a "bad mom" in her scene.

"There's one big scene and I play the drunk mom," Kozlowski said. "My scene is a big PTA scene, and one by one they stand up and confess why they are a bad mom and it has all five headliners in the scene."

She said she was in hair and makeup right next to Hahn, Bell and Kunis.

"I talked to them just a little bit, but you could tell they were friends because they had been working on the film for a while," Kozlowski said. "I think I was there on the last day of shooting -- I did a one-day shoot, but it was a 13-hour shoot."

The film, which was written and directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, was shot on location in New Orleans. It opens in theaters July 29.

And now, Kozlowski said, the game of hurry up and wait begins.

"I don't know that my scene made the final cut because you don't know anything until it's released, but I have a feeling that because it was such a big scene that it will make the final cut," she said. "But you never know."

In the meantime, Kozlowski has plenty to keep her busy, as she is a working actress, having appeared on episodes of "NCIS: New Orleans" and "Scream Queens," which was shot in part on the campus of Tulane University.

She can currently be seen with the famous spokesperson "Annie" in a commercial for Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.

And when she's not acting, Kozlowski is overseeing her recently-launched clothing line.

"I came with the idea about a month ago and started working on it and I just got my first batch of inventory in," she said. "It's all very exciting and new and I have a few stores who are picking up my products."
