Although Krysten Ritter is best known for portraying Marvel’s Jessica Jones, the actress often turns heads with her provocative Instagram posts. After sharing a few outtakes from an official photo shoot, the 41-year-old took a mirror selfie in a red leather dress and black high-heeled boots. She paired the look with a black choker and sunglasses.

Naturally, fans took to the comments section to gush over The Defenders alum. “Wow, absolutely breathtaking!” one person wrote. Another expressed their love of her footwear, writing, “Love the boots!’ Others simply responded to Krysten Ritter with heart and fire emojis which have become common place when words fail.

Away from social media, Krysten Ritter can be seen as Sherry Cleckler in the true crime drama Love & Death. The limited series, directed by Lesli Linka Glatter and Clark Johnson from a script by David E. Kelley, premiered on MAX in April. The story delves into the intriguing tale of a churchgoing housewife named Candy Montgomery (portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen) in the quiet town of Wylie, Texas.

Candy’s life takes an unexpected turn when she begins an extramarital affair with Allan Gore (played by Jesse Plemons). Despite their contrasting personalities, their shared desire for intimacy leads them to seek solace outside their marriages. However, their ill-fated journey leads to the death of Allan’s wife, Betty Gore, at the hands of an axe-wielding Candy.

Krysten Ritter talked about her involvement in the series with Salon, explaining that she didn’t know about the real-life Candy Montgomery before seeing the script. “I didn’t know anything about this story before. I met with our wonderful director and David E. Kelley and read the scripts,” she said. The Marvel star was shocked that everything was based on actual events.

“I couldn’t believe that it was a true story, and the scripts were so fantastic, and this is an amazing group of actors, group of producers, and I was in immediately,” Krysten Ritter added. She also explained her character’s role in the series. “I play Sherry Cleckler, who is also a real person, Candy Montgomery’s best friend and business partner, and her confidant as she is making some pretty bad decisions.”
