Actress Christina Ricci is set to adopt a bizarre new look for her latest movie, PENELOPE – she’ll be playing a woman with a pig’s nose.

The brunette beauty is preparing to transform her looks for a less then flattering guise in the independent comedy, which she’s excited to unveil to fans.

She says of the film, “It’s a modern-day fable about this girl whose family lineage is cursed. She’s born with a pig’s nose!

“And the only way to break the curse is for someone of her own kind to accept and love her. My agent was actually afraid to send the script to me because she thought I’d be offended.”
