THE PIANIST star Adrien Brody has angered fans by lashing out at "ugly" admirers who approach him for a kiss.

The 31-year-old hunk - who forced a kiss upon a shocked Halle Berry at the 2002 OSCARS - resents unattractive girls who intrusively "stick their tongues down" his throat.

Brody confesses, "Once I was having dinner at a restaurant in LA and some girl ran over to me and said, 'I'm sorry, I just have to do this' - and she stuck her tongue down my throat.

"I know most people would go, 'Girls are running up to kiss you in restaurants and you're complaining?' I mean, if it was my type of woman, then that would be fine, but she was ugly. The next day I woke up with a cold."
