Actress Kim Cattrall almost missed out on playing a washed-up prostitute in new movie MEET MONICA VELOUR - because she looked too good.
Director Keith Bearden told the Sex & The City star she'd have to put on weight and ditch the glamour to land the lead in his indie movie, which premieres at the upcoming Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
He says, "My big concern was, 'She's way too good looking!'
"I was like, 'You need to gain weight, and the goal is to blow people's image of you into tiny little pieces. I'm going to make you look bad at every turn.'"
