Rosie Huntington-Whiteley lost eyelashes on Mad Max
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had all of her eyelashes pulled out while she was shooting ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’.
The stunning 29-year-old model-and-actress played pregnant character The Splendid Angharad in the 2015 action blockbuster and she had to have a complete body cast made of herself for some of the more extreme stunts in the survival movie.
Although she was happy to be placed in latex to make the prop, once it had dried the removal process didn’t go too smoothly as the prosthetic had stuck to her face and when it came off her eyelashes were ripped out.
Rosie – who is engaged to ‘The Expendables’ star Jason Statham – admits she had to spend three months without any hair on her eyelids which was quite weird.
In an interview on UK TV show ‘This Morning’, she shared: "I had to have my whole body cast, I guess they were making a fake body of me for a film I did ‘Mad Max’, and they put the cast over my head. It was a very weird and surreal moment and as they took it off it pulled out all my eye lashes because the plaster got into my eyelashes and pulled out all my eyelashes. So for about three months I had no eyelashes. That was probably the biggest make-up or beauty fail and it was quite painful! It was quite dramatic as well."
Rosie previously admitted that she did enjoy wearing the fake bump for the multiple award-winning film – which also starred Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult – because it made her feel "truly pregnant".
She said: "It was really fun, it was really different for me to play someone who is pregnant because normally I have to have a super flat stomach, so it was kind of nice … The prosthetic team had worked on the belly for several months before, and it had all my natural markings and freckles on the belly, it was weighted, so it felt really, really natural and beautiful. I felt really lovely until about six o’clock at night when my back would start to ache. I felt truly pregnant. I found myself eating my lunch off the top of it."
