The MTV actress opened up to Refinery29 about the beauty expectations placed upon her -- and revealed what she says when she hits the red carpet and someone asks her if she's indeed faking it like her TV character Karma. "I say, 'I’m faking my tan out of a bottle from CVS, I have fake eyelashes on, I’m really a dark brunette,'” she said.
Stevens added that women are stuck between a rock and hard place when it comes to keeping up appearances -- and doesn't think it's just a Hollywood thing either. "Even as women, aren't we 'faking it' all the time?" she asked. "We put makeup on our faces, but then if we weren't faking it, we'd get called out for faking it. And then if we're not faking it, we get, 'Why didn't you do something with yourself?'"
