On October 13, Stranger Things' Maya Hawke (Robin) uploaded a film still on Instagram, giving fans a sneak peek to her latest movie, Mainstream (2020).
Not only that, but Maya also uploaded a short clip on Instagram. In the clip, she appears to have just finished shooting a scene where she's scarcely dressed. She also appears to be covered in 'glitter'.
In the clip, Maya's companion calls her name to attract her attention. When Maya realises she's being filmed, Maya starts joking around.
In it, Maya explains, while pausing in laughter, "what it was like to be famous", using industry stereotypes.
I "Oh, hi. Welcome, this is the life of a movie star. Um, if you were ever wondering what it was like to be famous, this is it. It's very glamorous and sexy, and everybody wants to sleep with you and kiss you all the time, and people give you lots of free food and free clothes and free alcohol and basically, I just never pay for a thing myself. I'm drunk right now."
However, fans noticed two purple circles on the back of Maya's neck, which Maya explains in the post, that she "did not get attacked by an octopus", but had in fact, "got some cupping done".
(Cupping is a traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern therapy that involves creating suction on the skin with the goal of stimulating blood flow. Round bruises on the skin afterwards are common.)
