Isla Fisher: I Warned Julianne Hough About Blackface Makeup!

We all remember when Julianne Hough caused a stir with her “Crazy Eyes” Halloween costume, and it turns out gal pal Isla Fisher tried to help her avoid the drama.

The “Confessions of a Shopaholic” starlet “was mortified” when she saw the “Rock of Ages” babe dressed in her “Orange is the New Black” getup, especially her ‘blackface’ makeup.

And according to an eyewitness, Isla recommended that Julianne “go to the bathroom and wipe her face off. She hoped she got to Julianne before photos were taken.”

Crazy Eyes actress Laverne Cox subsequently stated, "I wasn't offended. I thought it was a shame that she is in this country, that she would wear blackface and not understand the historical implications of that. I don't think Julianne is making a specific informed choice to comment on blackness. I just think it's out of this ignorance. That's really sad."
