Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recently revealed she was pregnant, and now she has spoken of her first taste of pregnancy during the filming of Mad Max: Fury Road.
The 29-year-old model and actress played pregnant character The Splendid Angharad in the 2015 blockbuster and used a head-to-toe body cast that replicated her looks for the movie’s extreme stunts. However, the removal of the latex didn’t go too smoothly and pulled out all of her eyelashes when it was taken off.
It included a real-life baby bump which was made of natural materials and even had marks and freckles.

Rosie – who is engaged to The Expendables star Jason Statham – announced she was carrying her first child at the beginning of February.
In a recent interview with British broadcaster ITV, she also spoke of a bizarre incident involving the said costume which left her with no eyelashes for months.
Speaking on the daytime TV show ‘This Morning’ last Tuesday, she revealed: “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 eyelashes because the plaster got into my eyelashes and pulled them all out! 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.”
The character she played in Mad Max: Fury Road was pregnant too
“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”, the Plymouth-born star confessed.
However, at times the experience proved too real.
“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!”
Rosie found the experience ‘surreal’, but enjoyable nonetheless as the costume resembled reality to the extent it made her feel as if she was truly carrying a baby
It would prove difficult in the evenings, though, as her back would often hurt from the weight
When asked about her makeup secrets during the interview, Rosie revealed:
“My mom always told me makeup should enhance, never hide, and you should celebrate your favorite asset. I don’t follow any trends, I want to feel the best I can feel.It’s always about feeling natural and polished and easy”.
