In Eminem’s 2002 film debut 8 Mile, she had a minor role as B-Rabbit’s ex-girlfriend, Janeane.

“I walked up to him the first time I saw him. I think he was sitting,” the “Orange Is The New Black” star said about her role in an interview with Details.

“When I approached him, I was like, ‘Hey, I’m playing Janeane.’ And out of nowhere, three huge bodyguards surrounded him. They thought maybe I was a fan who had gotten loose on the set. I was like, ‘I am so sorry. I am playing Janeane in the film.’ And they were like: ‘Oh, okay.’ And they sort of parted the seas and let him speak to me.”

“He’s hilarious,” she added about the American rapper. “He is always cracking jokes and a real goofball. I had a great connection with him, and he added one of our Boomkat songs [‘Wastin’ My Time’] to the ‘8 Mile’ soundtrack.”

The film began shooting in September 2001 in Highland Park, Michigan, when Taryn Manning was 22-years-old. Born on November 6, 1978, in Falls Church, Virginia, she turned 23 on November 6, 2001.

The American drama film premiered on November 8, 2002, just two days after her 24th birthday.

At the Golden Globes afterparty, the then 37-year-old actress donned an asymmetrical Lanvin dress, which appeared to be a size too big for her petite 5′ 2″ (1.57 m) frame.

It featured metallic paisley embroidery, a long sleeve on its right side, and an oversized black satin bow that — unfortunately — swamped her figure in fabric.

She styled the rather unflattering frock with a few bracelets, rings, and earrings. We also got a glimpse of her elaborately detailed pumps, thanks to the knee-high slit of the dress.

To complete her ensemble, she pulled her hair into an updo with side wisps and wore smoky eyeshadow and a hint of scarlet lipstick.

Taryn’s heels are from the Fall/Winter 2015-2016 collection of Italian brand Gedebe.

These pumps, called “Mimi,” are made of supple leather and feature buckled ankle straps, mid straps, pointed cap toes, and crystal-embellished center panels.
