Anushka Sharma confesses to this really odd thing about herself!

We're guilty of the same

By ELLE team  July 13th, 2016

We catch Anushka Sharma right after she’s wrapped shooting for Nivea’s forthcoming commercial. It’s been a long day, but it doesn’t reflect in her sunny manner in the least. 

ELLE: How do you manage to look fresh despite crazy shoot hours?
Anushka Sharma: You know, I had learned early on, that using sunscreen is very important, and I’d been very particular about that. I also have this thing with moisturisers. I feel like my clothes probably smell of moisturisers and not perfumes, ’cause it feels nice. What else? Water? Drink it.

ELLE: What’s your one major beauty confession?
AS: I keep buying mascaras. And then they dry up because I barely use them. I don’t know why I’m obsessed with buying mascaras. It’s really stupid. When I really want to use it, I can’t because it’s dry!

ELLE: One beauty trick you wish you’d learned when you were younger?
AS: I wish I’d not shaped my eyebrows. I don’t thread them anymore, but I wish I’d never done it.

ELLE: It’s funny you mentioned it, I was just going through some of your older pictures and there’s a definite change.
AS: Yeah, I had good eyebrows. But you go to any [parlour], and they just make it so thin. And at the time I thought that was cool! But I think it’s been a few years now, since I did them, roughly before Bombay Velvet

ELLE: What’s the one beauty trend that you just don’t get?
AS: So many! I don’t like frosted lipsticks. It’s really ugly. 

ELLE: What was your last extravagant spa routine?
AS: It was in 2013. I’ve been to a spa after that, of course, but it’s usually rushed. (“Jaldi karo, jaldi karo, ek ghanta ho gaya.” They’re like “Aap aatey kyun ho, madam?”) I went to Ananda in the Himalayas, with my trainer, and I was eating good food. So that’s all I did – it was blissful. It was between schedules of Bombay Velvet and PK.

ELLE: What was the last thing you Googled? 
AS: I just Googled Nivea, so I could ask them to send me a product!

ELLE: Which three songs or artists would we find on your iPod now?
I’m listening to this Coke Studio Pakistan song ‘Aik Alif’ a lot. 

…and Birdy’s acoustic version of ‘Wings’

…and Badshah’s ‘Wakhra Swag’. Have you heard it? No? What’s up with you, man!

I have no idea what he’s saying. But it sounds nice.

ELLE: You’ve said that you hated your modelling days. What was the worst thing that happened to you?
AS: There was this really nasty model…I’m not going to name her. You know how your shoes – these were given by the designer – are generally tucked under this rack of clothes backstage? I don’t know what her problem was, maybe she lost her shoes or something. She just came and took my shoes. I told her those are my shoes, meekly. She turns around and says, ‘No they’re not, someone tell this kiddo who I am.’ I was just like, why are they so pissed off?

ELLE: What’s the one odd thing no one knows about you?
I eat two dinners. Yesterday I woke up at 5.30 am because I was hungry. I eat my dinner, and they ask me ‘Do you want to keep something aside for later?’ I blitz it in the microwave and eat again.
