It's not easy being ugly. At least, not if you're Emily Blunt.
In the November issue of InStyle, the Brit babe talks about the transformation she had to undergo to play a depressed alcoholic in her upcoming movie, "The Girl on the Train."
When you're as good looking as Blunt that means the makeup department has to get a little creative in trying to make you look like a bloated mess.
"The prosthetic people created these molds that clipped onto my teeth to make my face seem puffy," she revealed about the process.
Makeup artist Kyra Panchenko also had some impressive tricks up her sleeve.
"Kyra is so talented. She used gray eye shadow under my eyes to bring out the circles and a little brush to paint spider veins all over my face," gushed Blunt, who also revealed she wore a number of bloodshot contact lenses that ranged from pink to red to yellow depending on her character's level of drunkenness.
"I kept saying to the crew, 'All right, can we get them back in here and make her look a little more drunk and ugly?'" said the film's director Tate Taylor.
But just because she's drop dead gorgeous doesn't mean Blunt hasn't faced struggles of her own.
The 33-year-old also opened up about suffering from a severe stutter as a child for her cover interview.
"I got teased a lot, and to this day, I hate unkindness in people and bullies," said Blunt, who confessed she used to give people a fake name because she had so much trouble pronouncing her own.
"Names are always tricky because you can't substitute a different word and there's so much pressure attached to it. Even nowadays, when I'm tired or I feel put on the spot, I still sometimes struggle to get the words out. When I make a phone call—especially if I'm calling someone I don't know—I have to mentally prepare myself. There's always a big pause between when they ask 'Who's calling?' and when I say 'Emily Blunt.'"
