In Deadpool 2, Zazie Beetz plays a mercenary with mutant powers, but in real life the actress is actually very down-to-earth.

As girlfriend and mother on Easy and Atlanta, Beetz has caught audience's eyes by actually imbuing what could have been throwaway roles with compassion and depth. Now, in her first turn as a Marvel Comics superhero who goes by the name of Domino in Deadpool 2, Beetz has solidified her presence as a fantastically wise-cracking scene-stealer worthy of a starring role.

Once rising stars sign a Marvel movie contract (although technically Deadpool is a Fox studios franchise at the moment), there is undeniably no turning back to living a normal life without comic book super-fans following their every move. It's hard to not see Chris Evans as Captain America, or Tom Holland as Peter Parker. Beetz is preparing herself for the same future treatment. The 26-year-old actress has remarked on Instagram (in quite lengthy captions) at the ways in which her life will change now that she has become an official fixture in the Marvel cinematic universe, but the authenticity that Beetz brings to her screen roles will likely remain part of the way she represents herself on social media.

❀Here's how the red carpet works! ❀ of course it depends on the event, I have also dressed myself and done my own makeup on multiple occasions, but generally, this is sort of the course of things for high profile carpets. A couple of weeks before the evening you get on the phone with your stylist (which production hired for you- so you don't pay for them) and talk about the kinds of looks that you would be interested in. Then they go out and search for outfits. They try to get you an exclusive with a designer, but most importantly, you should look nice. About a week before the event, you try on all of the options presented to you (if you and your stylist aren't in the same city, you'll get flown out to do so), and then nix the ones you don't like! Usually you try to pick "the one" so you don't have to worry about it anymore. You reconvene again on the day of the awards, or whatever the event is, and put the gown on. Then a tailor will come to your hotel room and alter the dress to fit your body and taste exactly. They can shorten it or change straps or do all kinds of nips and tucks. It depends on the designer and how altered the dress can be returned because the dresses are all rented. You don't buy them. You wear them for free- which is why designers are picky about who wears their clothing because they are exchanging them for exposure. But after alterations, you slip out of the gown, and then a makeup artist and hairstylist (and even manicurist) will arrive and get you all ready! They are also paid for. I often don't work with hair stylists and I like to do my own makeup, too- but I've done both. After you're all primped and ready to go, you put on the dress one more time, get a clutch, put some shoes on, pop on jewelry (the jewelry has to all be one designer. You can't mix and match), and head out the door. You have to try to remember the names of all of the people you're wearing so that if you're asked on the carpet, you can mention them and advertise them. And then you go and have a faaaabuulouuussss night πŸ–€πŸ’« The next day you return the items. So the rich get richer and the poor get poorer? I don't know. But I'd always been curious, so I wanted to share.

From outlining how red carpet preparation actually works to being a shining example of an honest citizen of New York, it remains clear on Beetz's Instagram that she never shies away from being transparent about the film industry. Plus, any woman who makes and shares her own kombucha and body butter recipes like Beetz does is someone who will always keep it real, no matter what levels of fame she experiences in her future.

Long before her role in Deadpool 2 was announced, Beetz shared a selfie of herself with her Atlanta cast mates Brian Tyree Henry and Lakeith Stanfield in some intense face makeup similar to the kind worn by her Deadpool character in January 2016, and looking back, it would appear that "Domino" was there all along. The actress is signed on for three more films with Fox, and they are not necessarily Deadpool sequels, so hopefully we'll get to see a Domino spin-off in the near future because we could always use more Zazie Beetz in our lives.
