Kim Cattrall Too Pretty as Prostitute

April 16, 2010 (6:25 am) GMT
Director of 'Meet Monica Velour' did not want to use her at first because she was too thin and good looking to play a 50-year-old single mother.

Actress almost missed out on playing a washed-up prostitute in new movie "" - because she looked too good. Director Keith Bearden told the "" star she'd have to put on weight and ditch the glamor 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.'"

Starring also Dustin Ingram, the indie movie is about a young man who travels cross-country to meet his dream woman, a 1980s cinema siren who is now a 50-year-old single mother in the middle of a child custody battle.
