The 32-year-old star stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to chat about fans mistaking a side-by-side transformation of what she looked like before and after she got her makeup done for the movie.
“[The makeup artist] did this really rough look, because my family has experienced a lot of tragedy,” Blake said while talking about the side-by-side photos. “And then this after I clean up but when I posted it, people were saying ‘wow, Blake bravely shows what she looks like before and after makeup.’”
Blake continued: “Some people think that’s what I look like without makeup [pointing at the after picture], which I find very offensive because that takes an hour for her to make me look like that.”
“I’m sort of vacillating between my vanity, which is like wanting to be like, ‘I don’t actually look like that!’” Blake added. “But also being a feminist and being like, ‘why do we expect women to wake up looking like this? This isn’t realistic that you wake up this beautiful!’ But I would like people to believe that I wake up looking this beautiful.”
The 32-year-old star revealed that her five-year-old daughter James didn’t want to accompany her mom to interview taping when Jimmy asked, “How’s my girl James?”
Blake replied, “We’ve got to stay away from you Jimmy. She’s so intimidated by you.” Blake said that when she asked her to come along to the taping, James nervously said “no, that’s fine. Just go, just go…”
Blake told Jimmy that James is “buddies with Taylor Swift, no problem. Jimmy Fallon, can’t speak. You’re like her Beyonce. We have a Jimmy Fallon cardboard cutout in our house.”
Blake also played a round of Box of Lies with Jimmy, chatted about the time she seriously injured her hand punching Jude Law during a fight scene for her new movie The Rhythm Section.
Blake was wearing a Prada dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, earrings by Ofira Jewels and two rings by Lorraine Schwartz.
The Rhythm Section will be out in theaters on Friday, January 31.
