Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly is sharing a behind-the-scenes look at the transformation to play Tommy Lee in the Motley Crue biopic The Dirt.
The Dirt is a Netflix movie directed by Jeff Tremaine based on the book “The Dirt: Confessions of the World’s Most Notorious Rock Band” by Neil Strauss.
Colson Baker, better known by his stage name Machine Gun Kelly, didn’t just have to act the part of Tommy Lee, he had to look it.
That meant covering his tattoos and repainting his entire body with Tommy Lee’s tattoos.
Baker shared a look at the process on his Twitter page.
