While walking the red carpet, Ralph was asked if she had a message to tell her younger self. The Abbott Elementary star praised her natural features before throwing shade at the Kardashians.

“There’s nothing wrong with your nose,” began the 66-year-old’s encouragement to a teen Sheryl. “There is nothing wrong with the shade of your skin. There is nothing wrong with the way your hair grows out of your head.”

She continued, “And there certainly is nothing wrong with your lips, because there will be some people called Kardashians and they will pay $10,000 for your lips. Hang in there, 15-year-old Sheryl Lee Ralph—you’re good.” 

Ralph’s interview clip quickly went viral on social media with mixed reactions. The actress appeared to address the murmurs in a tweet.

“I said what I said. Now, I’m going to bed. Goodnight!” the Emmy-winner wrote.

Back in August, Kim Kardashian revealed what cosmetic work she’s had on her face during an interview with Allure. “I’ve never had eyelash extensions. I’ve never done anything,” Kim said, before admitting she’s had a little bit of Botox. “I’ve never filled my cheeks. I’ve never filled my lips.”

Kim’s sister Kylie, on the other hand, has admitted to enhancing her lips with filler. “I really wanted bigger lips. I would overline my lips with lip liner just to create the illusion of bigger lips—and then finally I was like, this lip liner isn’t doing it. I ended up getting my lips done,” she confessed on a 2017 episode of Life of Kylie.
