Just how obsessed with makeup is she? "I have a makeup closet. The first thing I got done in my apartment were the closets-there are shoe closets, a clothing closet, and a makeup closet."

"At first, [the dark eye look] was because it didn't make me look as young I was; and now it seems like a lot of people go for that with me on shoots and I'm just so used to it.

I'm sticking with the kitty-cat eye."
