“I know Ezra Miller is getting a lot of attention lately, but I found [them] to be extremely aloof, but professional,” she says. “Standoffish, but I literally did not take this personally. I felt like [they] showed up, did [their] job, and went home.” 

“Jesse McCartney brought me to tears,” the creator shares. “At the time he had pretty problematic skin but the director literally told me to let him sweat. He yelled at me in front of the other actors that I was not giving him enough coverage.” 

The TikToker clarified in a comment that he yelled at her in between takes. 

“I was mortified he didn’t speak to [me] privately. (Basically told me I wasn’t doing my job),” she commented. 

“Zoe Kravitz is an absolute angel. So sweet down to earth and took her time to get to know me,” the TikToker continues in the video. “And even years later I was in a bathroom at a movie theater and I didn’t notice her and she came up to me and said hello.” 

The makeup artist’s video has been viewed over 45,000 times as of Thursday. Several viewers were appalled at McCartney’s alleged behavior.

“Why am I not surprised about Jesse McCartney I feel like he grew up with a gold spoon in his mouth,” one user wrote. 

“Jesse McCartney performed at a small venue at my college town. He was so rude and had a tantrum that no one showed up,” another viewer shared. 

“It’s always the celebrities no one cares about that act stuck up,” a third wrote. 

Others were disappointed their Disney “childhood crush” turned out to be rude. 

“I’m heartbroken over Jesse. he was my biggest crush growing up,” a user wrote. 

Update 2:24 pm CT, July 14: In conversation with the Daily Dot, @ohuprettythings shared that while she no longer does professional makeup, in favor of influencing, she had some notable experiences during her ten-year tenure in the industry.

Speaking on her reported experience with McCartney, she said, “I don’t think this is a regular thing on movie sets. It depends, some people are more intense than others. I think he was insecure with his skin at the time and I do understand why he was probably feeling upset. He had a lot of acne, and it was covered very well, but he was sweating in the scene. The director told me he wanted him red, he wanted him sweaty, and I have to take orders from the director.”

She continued, “It wasn’t that my ego was bruised, I was just embarrassed. It definitely left a bad taste in my mouth and a memory I was kind of cringing over for years.”
