The 44-year-old actress revealed in a new interview that she had to wear eight prosthetic pieces on her face to transform into the former Fox News host in the upcoming movie Bombshell.
“We worked with the greatest [special effects makeup artist], Kazu Hiro. It’s really hard to get him to do new stuff,” Charlize shared with Hollywood Reporter. “But I did a lot of begging and he came on and designed eight [prosthetic] pieces for me. Two of them basically covered my entire eyelids. It was very intricate work. Intricate work where you still need to be able to do what you need to do, like blink.”
