Cruz: 'I'm Not Scared Of Being Ugly'

Subscribe Penelope Cruz

PENELOPE CRUZ has no regrets about looking "ugly" in her latest movie - because she didn't become an actress to shy away from less-than-glamorous roles.

The 30-year-old exotic beauty didn't hesitate to wear false teeth and thick make-up for her part in Italian movie DON'T MOVE, in which she plays a woman who falls in love with a married doctor who goes on to rape her.

Cruz, who is dating Hollywood hunk MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY, says, "I don't want extra credit just because I'm not scared of being ugly in a movie.

"This is the reason I've wanted to be an actress since I was four years old - to be able to play all these different people, to feel like them."
