Busy Philipps put on her 2007 wedding dress to celebrate reuniting with her Made of Honor co-stars during her talk show Busy Tonight on Wednesday (10Apr19).

The actress revisited the look from her big day while sitting down with Michelle Monaghan and Whitney Cummings, who showed up wearing bridesmaids dresses for the episode.

“I really pulled out my wedding dress from 12 years ago and wore it on my show tonight,” Philipps wrote on Instagram after the show aired. “It basically fit except my stupid upper rib cage which grew after my 2 babies. No one tells you about that s**t. But babies expand your rib cage so, just be aware. This is a PSA (Public Service Announcement).”

Philipps’ stylist Erica Cloud chimed in with a comment on the post, joking: “But we got that zipper up AND the belt was loose so… that’s a WIN.”

During the show, comedian Cummings recalled protecting the actress on set during a particularly rough scene, because she knew the blonde beauty was set to tie the knot the following day.

“We were shooting on an actual swamp,” she recalled. “I spent most of the day holding a net over Busy’s face so that she didn’t get bug bites on her face!”

Busy initially wanted her wedding to be low-key, but production on the film delayed her plans.

“(Husband) Marc (Silverstein) and I were planning a surprise wedding; I didn’t wear a ring and we didn’t anyone we were getting married,” she shared. “We just had invited all of our friends to this surprise birthday party. They thought they were coming to surprise me. But the plan was always that I would show up in this dress… and then we would say, ‘The surprise is on you, we’re getting married right now!’”

She added, “Then I got cast in Made of Honor and how could I say no to a job that’s so good.”

Busy Philipps’ beauty and self-care regime has evolved since she launched her late-night talk show last year.

The actress has had to meet the demands of hosting Busy Tonight and credits her stylist and new role as an Olay ambassador for allowing her to look flawless while doing it.

“I really believe in trying to keep it as natural as possible…,” she tells The Hollywood Reporter. “I do get a fair amount of facials. Like I really do, but also I think that’s part of when I’m doing a show or working – and this has been most of my career – you’re wearing so much makeup, you’re sitting under lights all day, you’re putting powder on top of powder on top of powder.

“You just need to get that deep clean. You need to get your skin really clean every couple of weeks.”

And the star has learned a few helpful beauty hacks while juggling the show’s hectic schedule.

“My makeup artist Kindra Mann, who has been doing my makeup for years now, bought this little mini refrigerator for our glam room at Busy Tonight, and she keeps these rollers in there,” she adds. “There’s, like, a jade roller and a rose quartz roller, and she’ll, like, roll my face and under my eyes in the morning and it is very refreshing.”

The 39 year old has also benefited from her partnership with Olay, noting the brand’s products are perfect for prepping to appear on camera.

“Skincare truly is something that I do feel very strongly about,” she tells the publication. “I’m a person who has lots of beauty marks and moles. So I know that protecting my skin is important to my health. Then, of course, there’s the superficial reason, which is that I’m an actor and a person in front of the camera, and I don’t want wrinkles. When Olay sent me the product and I started trying it and utilising it in the day-to-day, it was so incredible.”

The blonde beauty has also used the show as an opportunity to share her style preferences and express herself.

“It’s incredibly important to always be true to myself and the essence of who I am on the talk show,” she adds. “It was actually a piece of advice that Stephen Colbert gave me, which was, ‘Don’t ever stop being you, because that is the thing that people have responded to. It’s the thing people want, and your job is to put that into the world in the purest way you can when you do a talk show’.

“I thought that was such amazing advice from him and I really try to implement that in many different ways.”

Julia Roberts didn’t intend to show hairy armpits at Notting Hill premiere

Julia Roberts didn’t intend to make a statement with her hairy armpits at the Notting Hill premiere in 1999. 

Opening up about the incident, where she showed off her unshaven pits at the London opening of the romcom, Julia told Busy Philipps on her new show Busy Tonight on Sunday night (04Nov18) that she didn’t realise the red sequinned Dolce & Gabbana dress, which featured capped sleeves, revealed so much.

“The picture is vivid in my mind actually, from that, from that moment. It wasn’t…ya know…I think I just hadn’t really calculated my, my sleeve length and the waving, and how those two things would go together and reveal personal things about me,” she recalled. “So, it wasn’t so much a statement as it’s just part of the statement I make as a human on the planet, for myself.”

Busy, 39, had told the Oscar-winning actress she had assumed that the skipped shaving session was a punk rock and cool move when she was younger, but didn’t seem disappointed when Julia explained what had actually happened.

“Which is very dope and I’m here for it,” she laughed.

Elsewhere in the chat, Busy praised Julia’s Instagram debut in June 2018, especially when the 51-year-old clapped back at a user who critiqued her nail polish colour in September.

“I did not mean to clap back, I’d never heard the words clap back,” she laughed. “I was just being amusing – something stumbled into my eyeball range and I was like, ‘Oh.’ And I was just being funny and a little school teachery (by) correcting. But then people were like, ‘Clap back!’ For me, I’m an actor, clapping is my sustenance!”
