Jennifer Coolidge had an allergic reaction to a spray tan she got for her Emmy-winning role in “The White Lotus”

“For ‘The White Lotus,’ I didn’t want to look like a big, white marshmallow on the beach in Hawaii, so I got a spray tan,” she said in a new interview with Allure, according to Entertainment Weekly.

She did not specify what type of spray tan she received or what her exact symptoms were, only that she felt strange soon after getting it while en route to filming. “I got on the plane and I started to feel really weird. By the time I got off the flight, I had to go to the emergency room,” she added.

The Mike White-created HBO comedy was shot on the Hawaiian island of Maui. It focuses on a group of resort visitors and employees.

Coolidge was forced to rethink her on-camera beauty routine following her allergic reaction.

“I think we ended up using regular makeup,” she recalled. “The minute we stopped filming, I would shower. I have such a quick reaction to stuff.”

Coolidge said before the incident, she generally did not evaluate the products used on her skin very closely. “I was never someone who cared very much about ingredients,” she said.

But she told Allure she’s noticed having an increase in reactions over the past few years.

“I’d say the last five or six years, I started getting allergic,” said Coolidge. “My eyes would always be tearing up, but it never occurred to me that it was my makeup.”

It is possible for adults to develop allergies to foods or substances that they were not allergic to previously.

“The White Lotus” earned Coolidge the Primetime Emmy Award for best supporting actress in a limited or anthology series or movie on September 12. Her Emmy was one of 10 won by the series, which was one of the night’s big winners.

Coolidge had another physical difficulty when receiving the award, which was her first Emmy, but thankfully it did not send her to the hospital.

“I just want to say I took a lavender bath tonight, right before the show, and it made me swell up inside my dress,” she revealed soon after taking the podium. “I’m having a hard time speaking.”

Coolidge is reprising her role as Tanya McQuoid on “The White Lotus” season two, which is set in Sicily and premieres on HBO in October.
