“You said it was like a triangle,” Apatow reminds her mom.
“And I don’t think she would pay to have me get it fixed,” Mann recalls.
“She let you suffer the consequences,” laughs Apatow, who recently experimented with her own hair as well, dyeing it red. She quickly had to change it back to her usual golden brunette, however — but not at her mother’s behest.
“I thought they were going to like it at work and they didn’t, so I had to dye it back. The continuity was funky,” says Apatow, who’s filming the new season of Euphoria. Mann loved the red, though, and Apatow says Mom is supportive of her and sister Iris’s beauty experimentation — with one exception. “So she’s like, ‘No tattoos ever, nothing permanent, but dye your hair or cut it however you want.'”
But Mann insists her no-tattoos rule is for a good reason. “I love tattoos, but the only reason I say that is because, as an actor, you have to wake up an hour earlier than you would normally have to to go sit in the makeup chair and have them covered up,” she explains.
As someone with a tattoo sleeve and a proclivity for community theater, I can confirm, that’s good advice. Turns out, just like in her Jergens commercials, Mann is actually full of good advice.
Mann’s beloved advice is absent from Jergens’s latest campaign for Mother’s Day. Instead, it features an array of other real-life moms — all of whom became mothers in different ways — and their kids. And if those kids are anything like Maude and Iris, they’ll end up giving advice right back to their moms.
“It used to be that Maude and Iris would always come in and steal all of my makeup, and now I go in and steal Maude and Iris’s makeup,” Mann says. “They’ve taught me everything beauty routine-wise.”
