Beyoncé is perfect in every way for her fans. However, Queen B is making sure she sets realistic standards of beauty. This includes meticulously shaping her image in every way, especially when it comes to posters.
Beyonce allegedly said she didn’t look like herself in a poster for Austin Powers in Goldmember. Queen B insisted that the photo be tweaked to reflect reality. “You made me too skinny. It’s not me,” is what Beyonce said to the producers according to makeup artist Kate Biscoe.
Biscoe sat down with Vulture to mark the 20th anniversary of the iconic Mike Meyers comedy. Biscoe added that Beyoncé “did an hourglass shape” to indicate the kind of changes she wanted to be done. The producers were happy to oblige, but the process wasn’t all easy.
“She walked away to go do the scene, and I looked at him and smiled, like, Is that the first time that you’ve ever had an actress ask to make her body bigger? He was like, ‘Yes. It’s going to cost me thousands of dollars, but I am going to do it.'”
Being the icon she is, Queen B always gets her way. Beyoncé played the role of Foxxy Cleopatra in Austin Powers in Goldmember. The movie became one of the highest grossing films of 2002.
Beyoncé reportedly took inspiration from her mom, Tina Lawson, for Foxxy’s iconic look. This was one of the first acting gigs for the pop star, and she nailed it. Recently, Beyoncé announced her seventh studio album, ‘Renaissance.’ The first single from the album, “Break My Soul,” is already a hit.
