The actor and comedian quipped back: "I was married to a man who didn’t notice."

Goldberg proceeded to detail what happened to her eyebrows: "I had eyebrows as a little kid and you know how men get those bumps? I started to get them on my face so my mother removed them. And so I just keep doing it because I don’t know my face with eyebrows, unless I’m working."

Goldberg also revealed to those watching that she has to have her eyebrows painted on using makeup for acting roles.
