As if we needed another reason to love the legend that is Beyoncé, but the latest piece of information to come to light about her has reignited our adoration for the singer once again.
Cast your minds back to 2002 when the third instalment of the Austin Powers movie was released. As you'll remember, Beyoncé starred as Foxxy Cleopatra in the blockbuster hit – Austin Powers in Goldmember – but the singer slash actor wasn't happy with how her body had been edited in one of the movie posters.
"When we were shooting, someone brought her a poster that would be promoting the movie," makeup artist Kate Biscoe told Vulture to mark the 20th anniversary of the comedy. "He showed it to her, like, 'Do you like it?' And she was kind of like, 'Yeah.' He goes, 'What’s the matter?'"
Kate went on, "She says, 'You made me too skinny. It’s not me'. Then she did this hourglass shape. And he said, 'Okay, we’ll fix that'."
The makeup artist continued: "She walked away to go do the scene, and I looked at him and smiled, like, 'Is that the first time that you’ve ever had an actress ask to make her body bigger?' He was like, 'Yes. It’s going to cost me thousands of dollars, but I am going to do it'."
