Hollywood actor Christian Slater loved playing an ugly character in his latest film - because he found it liberating to be free of his good looks. The 38-year-old had to don false teeth, an unflattering hairstyle and a moustache for his role in He Was A Quiet Man. The forthcoming film sees Slater star as an office worker who inadvertently becomes a hero when he saves a woman's life. And the actor was happy to give up his sense of style for the part. He says, "I had to put all those things aside, abandon any sense of vanity and wear messed-up false teeth and have a receding hairline shaved into my head. "Strangely enough, life was actually less stressful when I dressed like that; it felt good!"
