Kate Beckinsale has revealed she didn't need to wear prosthetic make-up to look "old and haggard" for new movie 'Nothing But the Truth' because she looks that way naturally
Kate Beckinsale didn't need prosthetic make-up to look "old and haggard" for new movie 'Nothing But the Truth'.
The 35-year-old actress donned fake eyebags to show how tired her character was at the beginning of shooting, but began filming her scenes without them once her hectic schedule took its toll.
Kate, who plays a reporter trying to reveal the truth about a CIA agent, is quoted as saying: "They put eye bags and stuff like that on, but it's embarrassing. I did look like s**t. I had some eye bags and slightly yellowy skin put on my make up for the prison scenes. But by the end of the movie I think I had it naturally!"
Kate recently revealed she has developed an understanding of the journalism industry after working on a US newspaper to prepare for her role in the thriller.
She said: "We are slightly sort of under the 'us and them' thing. It's a little like enemy lines - but when I was there I found it was amazingly similar to acting. It was quite nice to go, 'I kind of get it more than I thought I would'."
