Although Taryn Manning told us that she’s tried to sneak on some mascara while playing the pasty, snaggle-toothed former meth head Tiffany Doggett on Orange Is the New Black, the actress admitted she does find the show’s baggy, drab prison uniforms quite liberating. “We’re always at craft service like, ‘Well! You can eat that cookie, ’cause you’re not going to tell if you put weight [on],’” she said at last night’s G-Shock 30th anniversary party. “It’s just funny to be around an all-female cast, and obviously there’s a lot of talk about, you know, weight and bodies. There are gluten-free girls, and there are girls that like a lot of meat, and there are girls that don’t like meat. It’s just really funny because it doesn’t matter anyway, because you’re in prison garb.” The flip side, said Manning, comes when the weekend rolls around. “You’re like, ‘Oh, whoops. I forgot to shave my legs.’”
