Exclusive: Jordana Brewster on Her Hilarious Wedding Beauty Blunder

Before playing Nicole Brown Simpson’s sister, Denise Brown, on FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, Jordana Brewster was better known for her role as strong-browed raven-haired beauty Mia Toretto in The Fast and the Furious series. Upon meeting up with her in SoHo at the Zyrtec Allergy Face Beauty Kit launch event (Brewster is a spokesperson for the line), I felt like I was catching up with an old friend. We chatted about our favorite dry shampoos, HGTV, and how the wrong song played at her wedding (her husband chose a Shania Twain tune instead of the traditional “Here Comes the Bride” without Brewster’s knowing, a choice he’ll probably never live down.) Sitting in front of the breathtaking actress was easy and comfortable, something I didn’t anticipate prior to meeting with one of the stars of my Tuesday-night guilty pleasure. (My inner fan remained tame, thankfully.) Brewster radiates a relatable sense of humility that makes her even more charming in real life than I could have ever expected. Read on for our conversation on health, beauty, wellness, and the reason she wants to have a wedding beauty re-do.
