The 36-year-old actress posted a post-Emmy Awards morning-after makeup-free selfie to her Instagram account, captioning it: “Portrait of a hungover woman who had cake for breakfast.”
If only we all looked that good hungover sans makeup! We wouldn’t be at all surprised if Biel’s husband of six years, Justin Timberlake, fist pumps every morning when he wakes up to that natural beauty lying next to him.
If you scroll through the post, The Sinner actress also included a boomerang of herself stuffing a large slice of cake into her mouth, which she still manages to make look completely glamorous.
And to complete the set, the Valentine’s Day actress posted a picture of the cake before it became hangover breakfast, showing off a beautiful piece of cake art decorated with a black and white picture of a Hollywood pinup with the words “I’m so proud of you”, a clear reference to Biel’s Emmy nomination. Although the actress didn’t win at the Awards ceremony the evening before, it is still noteworthy as it was the actress’s first Emmy nomination.
Biel was nominated for her work on Netflix’s The Sinner in the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category, but she lost out to Regina King who took out the gong for her role in Seven Seconds.
However, Biel did have one big win at the Emmys, in the highly competitive field of red carpet fashion the actress emerged as one of the best-dressed of the night thanks to her stunning, perfectly fitted white Ralph & Russo Couture gown with scalloped detailing. Plus, if the hangover posts are anything to go by, she also had a win in the good time stakes.
