The upcoming movie of Charlize Theron, Bombshell, is again in limelight for Charlize's transformation into Megyn Kelly. The transformation of some of the most famous acting faces in the world was a considerable task for Bombshell’s hair and makeup team. The complicatedly crafted prosthetic work of Kazu Hiro’s subtle applications helped turn Charlize Theron into a doppelganger of Megyn Kelly, who inhabits the core of the story of sexual harassment among the Fox News ranks.

He said he was surprised and could not imagine that he had to paint with an absolute finesse that Kazu did in his pieces and Vivian also thought that Kazu Hiro was unbelievable. Baker called it all his teamwork. He also said that a technical challenge on top of just the normal beauty makeup is easier, however, putting them on top of prosthetics was a tough job.
