Celebrities, they’re just like us! Actress Ellie Kemper made an appearance at the 2016 Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday and showed her down to earth attitude when a reporter pointed out her makeup blunder on the red carpet.
During an chat with ABC, one of the network’s reporters made it known to the “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star and 2016 Emmy nominee her famous smile was a little off outside the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
“Are you smiling as bright and as wide as Kimmy Schmidt herself?” the reporter asked. “I smile a lot in real life a lot as well,” Kemper responded. After showing off her megawatt grin, the journalist pointed out Kemper had lipstick on her teeth, and the actress responded with gratitude.
“Thank you. Like literally, another woman might not do that,” Kemper said.
