Cringing. Cringing forever.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has paid a high price for her art—the model and actress just revealed her eyelashes were accidentally removed while filming Mad Max: Fury Road.

The 29-year-old star played pregnant Splendid Angharad in George Miller's post-apocalyptic movie, and had to have a cast made of her whole body for some of the more extreme stunts.

In an appearance on ITV's This Morning, Rosie explained that, for the movie, the filmmakers had to make a fake version of her body and that meant doing a full body cast—including her 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 it pulled them all out! So for about three months, I had no eyelashes," she said.

If you're cringing right now, you're so not alone.

"That was probably the biggest make-up or beauty fail and it was quite painful! It was quite dramatic as well," she added.

Huntington-Whiteley—who is engaged to actor Jason Statham—was featured on the show to discuss her beauty tips and the recent launch of her makeup range at Marks & Spencer.

She added that she prefers a more natural beauty look. "My mum always told me makeup should enhance, never hide, and you should celebrate your favorite asset," she said. "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."
