Ah, the things we do in the name of beauty. And apparently Thandie Newton does them too—the star took to Instagram yesterday to post an awesomely shameless pic of her facial hair-bleaching routine (Validation! We're all normal!).
But seriously, we all know the pain (sometimes quite literally) of bleaching and waxing and basically trying to pretend we popped out smooth as marble.
The actress wasn't coy about it in the caption, either: "Dealing with the tash in readiness for the Royal Premiere tonight! Go Jolen!" She later posted a pic showing her dolled-up self at the premiere of The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, starring her husband Ol Parker.
While celebrities have been known to try and keep it real on Insta (hashtag #NoFilter but really there are 23 filters), it's refreshing to see them actually getting honest. More, please!
