OSCAR nominee Salma Hayek is using her new pigtails to fly in the third SPY KIDS movie.

The actress will join pal Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone and BILL PULLMAN in Spy Kids 3-D: GAME OVER as a secret agent called DORA who uses her hair to fly.

The Mexican actress admits she's thrilled to play a tough spy on the big screen, but the 3-D effects presented her with many problems.

She explains, "It was great but I got a pimple and when I thought about it in 3-D I started to panic."

Meanwhile, co-star Pullman's young son James got lucky during a visit to the set - he was given a role in the film.

The movie hits cinemas this July (03).
