Chloe Bennet Won’t Wear Setting Spray on Set: “Women Can Be Messed Up”

Much like Daisy Johnson, the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. character she’s played for the past five years, Chloe Bennet speaks in a deep, powerful voice. Her cadence is unapologetically slow – she’s going to talk for as long as she needs to, and you’re going to listen.

Such casual, mature confidence is probably what makes people think the actress is older than her 26 years. That and the fact that she boasts a wildly impressive résumé that includes her stint on S.H.I.E.L.D., some time on Nashville, and a starring role in the upcoming romantic comedy Valley Girl.

Chloe may have stayed busy throughout her 20s, but she’s also the face of a new SK-II campaign called “The Expiry Date,” which calls bullsh*t on society’s expectations that a woman accomplish a certain number of things by a specific age. We spoke to the actress on everything from the pressures of being a role model to why she’ll never wear setting spray on set. Oh – and she also told us about that time she was a teen pop star in China. Let’s let Chloe explain.

POPSUGAR: The theme of your new SK-II campaign is that women have no expiry date. You’re 26. How has your approach to aging changed over the years?

Chloe Bennet: All of my insecurities about age have always been about my youth. I have always been the youngest female in the group. And my insecurities have always been about not feeling good enough because I was so young in such a professional setting very early. And then all of a sudden, I turn 25, and I go from being this young kid to no longer in young Hollywood because I’m over 25. I go from being the young kid to then not being young enough to play someone who is 10 years older than me on camera. It goes from not being taken seriously as a professional because of my age, then all of a sudden, I’m the old grandma on the block once I turn 25. That is so representative of where society is right now and how much pressure women have to age the way that everyone else expects you to age. I think every woman feels a pressure to have a certain number of things done, whether it’s start a family or have a career path. And it’s always on society’s terms and not necessarily each woman’s individual idea of what she wants. It’s such a crazy concept because so many dynamic, interesting women I know live by their own terms.

PS: I feel sort of similar in that at 23, I could be considered “too young” for my job. I’ve actually lied about my how old I am so people take me seriously. Did you ever do that?

CB: Actually, to get cast on my show, I told them that I was 27 when I was 20 years old. I lied because people always assumed by the way I acted that I was older. And I always saw my youth as a bad thing, because to me, it meant I wasn’t smart enough, I wasn’t experienced enough, I wasn’t capable enough to handle the responsibilities I had. I’ve always felt completely capable, but I also felt the pressure from everybody else around me. So I lied to get the job.

I remember when I turned 21 on the re-shoot of the pilot of S.H.I.E.L.D. and everyone was like, “How old are you turning now?” And I was like, “21! I can drink!” And they were like, “But really, how old are you turning?” “Seriously, I’m turning 21.” And they’re like, “You told us you were 27 or something when you got cast!”

PS: With all of the good that’s coming out of #MeToo and Time’s Up, do you, as someone who’s working in the industry, think it’s actually changing? Are you hopeful? Are you seeing that change implemented day to day?

CB: I really do think it’s actually changing. And that’s where I think the beauty of social media is. I think social media is such a double-edged sword. It’s such an easy way to compare yourself to others in a negative way. But it is just as easy to be inspired by other people and hear other people’s stories. It’s not just a campaign because it’s trendy. It’s a campaign because it’s important, and it needs to happen. And it’s real. I think those are the types of things that are really implementing change. And I can say without a doubt that things on set – the daily life is completely different because of movements like #MeToo. I feel more heard. I feel like I’m being taken seriously. I feel like I can say something, and it won’t be judged because of my race or my sex or my age but because I have the insight and the knowledge to say something about it because of who I am. So I do think that there is change happening.

PS: You’re on a series that has a woman showrunner. How has that experience been compared to other male-dominated sets that you’ve worked on?

“I pride myself in my character being an honest superhero where it’s not all perfect.”

CB: We do have a female showrunner. It still is predominantly male in terms of the crew, but we have a female leader. Maurissa [Tancharoen] is such an incredible leader for our show and supported by great, strong men alongside her. And Maurissa is a working mum. I’m still inspired by her every day as someone who is in Hollywood, who has overcome a lot of adversity because she is a Thai woman.

Often I see this where we’ll have new actors come on our show, and I’ll be talking to Maurissa, and they’ll kind of come up to me and kind of schmooze me a little bit and completely assume Maurissa is like a PA or a wardrobe assistant because she’s a beautiful, young Thai woman. And I’ll be like, “Hi. This is actually Maurissa.” And they’ll be like, “That’s nice. Can you get off the carpet?” or something like that. So often, I go, “This is the boss of the show. Our showrunner, creator, writer of this episode.” That happens all the time. I think if you’re a young female, you can relate to that. But having her as the leader of the show has been so important for me. Being on the show for five years, I didn’t finish high school with my class, I finished on my own. I didn’t go to college, and this has been really a huge learning experience for me. I could not be more thankful for having a strong Asian female who’s showing me how everything works.

PS: Speaking of your non-traditional education, you were a pop star in China before getting your TV gigs.

CB: True.

PS: Did you learn any beauty hacks or tricks in your past life?

CB: I did. There are so many that I learned from that time. It was like a pop-star boot camp. I learned a lot of actually old-school Chinese tricks for skin, like an egg white face mask, something we definitely rocked after like a show or touring. It’s straight egg white, which is a lot, but that’s something we did in terms of like just pure beauty.

PS: Did that work?

CB: I don’t know. I think it did. I feel that my skin is definitely more soft, like a whipped egg white. But I learned a lot. I learned how to get my makeup done, what I like, and how much makeup can change my face. I found a balance of, “Oh, this is a really good way to accentuate my features but not look like a different person.” I learned to rock high ponytails there, that’s for sure. Love that look. That is where I felt really comfortable often playing up my Asian features. So often in America, people want to tone that down. But I loved learning the fact that I am half-Chinese, and that is celebrated there, rather than being like, “You don’t look Asian.” I get that a lot: “You don’t look Asian.” It’s like “Well I don’t know. Is that a compliment?” They say it to me usually as a congratulatory situation. “You don’t look Asian, good for you.” And that’s always a weird thing to have said to you, so it was really fun to get to play up my Asian features in China.


PS: Speaking of, you changed your last name from Wang to Bennet after you weren’t getting called in for roles. How did you go about telling your parents, “Hey, this is a problem, I’m in kind of a racist industry, so I’m going to change my name”? How did they react to that?

“I wanted to book roles because I was right for the roles, not because I was Asian or I was white, because those things don’t define me.”

CB: My parents are very open and understanding. They’re very aware of the world that we live in. And it was always an issue for me. I come from an incredibly multicultural family. I have two black brothers, one is Mexican-Filipino, and the rest are half Chinese. My dad is Chinese, and my mum grew up in Europe. When I came to Hollywood, people were always incredibly confused by me. I would go out for parts, I would walk into a room, and they would tell me I was in the wrong room because it was for an Asian role. Or I’d walk in for the lead character, and they would say, “Sorry, what’s your last name?” And I would say, “Wang.” And they’d go, “We’re not really going to go ethnic for this part.”

I mean, this was only seven or eight years ago. Roles were either white, Asian, or black. And now it is so much more fluid, and I definitely have gotten a lot of heat over the past few months or years about changing my name and people saying, “Oh, you’re hiding from who you are.” And that’s just actually not true. I am me, and that comes with an incredibly complex background. I wanted to book roles because I was right for the roles, not because I was Asian or I was white, because those things don’t define me. They’re just a part of what makes me who I am. So when I told my dad, he was just incredibly on board because he was like, “We just want you to get work so you can pursue your dream.” In Chinese culture, the dad’s name is a very big part of honour and carrying the family name. And so my dad’s first name is Bennet. So I took his first name to honour him and how much work he’s put in. But I booked the first role after I changed my name.

PS: Really?

CB: Because people weren’t confined to society’s idea of who I was. It was like they were able to just see me for me and not for what they thought I should or shouldn’t be. I’ve dedicated myself to using my platform to bring awareness to Asian Americans in the industry in politics. I have a charity, an organization called RUN. It’s short for Represent. Us. Now, and it’s about Asian Americans and being represented equally in politics and in pop culture. And I take my role as someone who is an Asian role model very seriously. My motive behind changing my name wasn’t like, “Oh, I want to be more white.” It was because I’m going to be Chloe, and hopefully they’ll see me for who I am, and then I can share my story. But I’m not even going to get the opportunity to share my story if I don’t have a platform. So I get some heat for changing my names from both sides, but what else should I have done? I needed to pay my rent. That pop star money was running out.

PS: Exactly. So, you guys must use a mean setting spray on set.

CB: A what spray?

PS: A setting spray. To hold your makeup.

CB: Oh, girl. My makeup just falls off all day. I want it to be real on set, so if I look like sh*t after the fight sequence, I’ll try to commit to that. I try to keep it real. Women can be messed up! Like, if I have lots of blood, I try to keep it real. You’re not going to be in that perfect hair and that perfect makeup and all that stuff. And I pride myself on my character being an honest superhero where it’s not all perfect. The more messed up my hair and makeup can be, the better, actually.

I Wake Up at 5 A.M. to Work Out, and These Are 5 Tricks For Making It Effortless

I was forced to become a morning person. Not because I’m a mum or because I work full-time, but because I needed to make exercising regularly happen. My mindset used to be “Oh, I’ll work out later,” but later got pushed and pushed into never. With work and family responsibilities, the time to work out never magically fell into my lap.

I knew I had to make a serious change, so about two years ago, I decided to try CrossFit. The only classes I could fit in were before the family was awake, before work, at 5:45 a.m. It took about a month for my body to settle into this new routine, but here are five things that made it easier.

I Prep the Night Before

Laying out my workout outfit is a no-brainer. I keep everything I need to wear in the bathroom so I can easily slip it on. I also keep my sneakers and coat by the front door and my gym bag packed with my keys, fitness journal, a jump rope, and a filled water bottle.

At my CrossFit box, the owner posts the workout the night before at 8 p.m., so I always look at that to prepare for my morning workout. If there are exercises I’ve never heard of, or techniques I want to learn, I google it and watch a few videos while making the kids’ lunches for the next day. If I’m not going to CrossFit, I’ll plan out my trail run route or find a YouTube workout video I want to follow. Knowing what to expect from the next day’s workout helps give me that little burst of energy I need to wake up.

I Connect With My Fitness Buddy

“Class tomorrow?” I get or send this text just about every night with my CrossFit buddy Meghann. We keep each other accountable and exchange comments after looking at the workout like “looks brutal,” or “that’s a lot of wall balls!” It makes me feel better knowing she’ll be there sweating it out, too, and it makes it much harder to skip out after I already committed to go. When I walk into the gym, I’m always greeted with “Hey Sugar!” by the other 5:45 a.m. regulars. Feeling part of a community and knowing that other people care about me makes it easy to stay motivated to get up that early.

I Set 2 Alarms

I’m a snoozer, which means I don’t just set my alarm for 5 a.m. and perkily hop out of bed, ready to do burpees! I need to ease into waking up, so for me, setting two alarms is a must. One goes off at 4:42 a.m. (I know, it’s frickin’ early!). I named that alarm “Kick Ass!” to start getting psyched for my workout. I tap the snooze button so it’ll come on again at 4:50 a.m. I have a second alarm set for 4:54 a.m. that says, “Wake up, be AWESOME,” just in case I accidentally shut off the first alarm or sleep through it (it’s happened!). Naming my alarms really does get me psyched.

I Keep Track of My Morning Workouts

Like I mentioned earlier, I keep a fitness journal where I write down all of my workouts. It’s inspiring to look back and see all the workouts I’ve completed and also helpful because I add little notes to help me with future workouts like “use the heavier kettlebell next time.” I also track my progress, taking detailed notes about PRs (personal records) I’ve made with heavy lifts, or how many strict pull-ups I was able to do. There’s something truly satisfying about documenting my efforts, and it motivates me to wake up so I can track another workout!

I Say No When Necessary

This is a tough one, but in order to wake up super-early in the morning, I have to miss out on doing things the night before. I usually get in bed between 8:30 and 9 p.m., so I can hopefully be asleep by 9:30 the latest. But with kids to put to bed, lunches to makes, dinner dishes to clean, and other household chores, I don’t get to stay up late every night reading charming novels or cuddling on the couch losing myself in Netflix with my husband. Since getting up this early is just a weekday thing, Friday and Saturday nights are devoted to doing all those things I didn’t get to do Sunday through Thursday, so it it feels balanced.

You’ve heard the saying, “I don’t have time to work out, I MAKE time,” and that’s the truth. I pencil it into my schedule like an important meeting or appointment I have, which means it’s non-negotiable, and I have to sacrifice at other times. For me, it’s worth it though. Making me a priority is imperative because it’s one of the most effective things I can do for self-care. If I don’t get time every day to move my body, to connect with like-minded people, and to push myself, I don’t feel good, and that affects every aspect of my life.

Harper Beckham, Future Makeup Artist, Just Gave Parents Victoria and David the Most Adorable Makeover

Harper Seven might only be 6 (and a half to be precise), but she’s just as talented as the rest of the Beckham household. She can already bend it like Beckham, she’s an eloquent reader, could-be fashion designer, and a budding artist and apparently she’s pretty creative with makeup, too. Victoria shared snippets of her daughter’s creative talents over the weekend on Instagram, making it clear that Harper has a flare for makeup. She first gave mum a makeover inspired by a true icon: the emoji cat, which VB captioned as “future makeup artist?” Watch out world! Victoria wasn’t her only canvas: as soon as dad David got home, he sat in the makeup hot seat to begin his glittery transformation, and it’s freaking adorable. We’re also slightly in awe of how chic VB manages to look, even after being revamped into a cat.

Ahead, see Harper’s creations; we definitely spy a future makeup artist in the making.
