Singer-turned-actress Macy Gray begged and pleaded with director Lee Daniels after he banned her from wearing a wig while shooting new erotic thriller The Paperboy.

The I Try hitmaker was preparing to be fitted for a glamorous hairpiece for her role as Anita the housekeeper, but Daniels saw her without make-up and instantly knew a natural look would work better.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Let me tell you, this is the funniest. We're experimenting with wigs. So she's in the make-up trailer, hair trailer, and there's this row of eight or nine wigs. And she's sitting there all excited about which Diana Ross wig from the '70s she's going to put on.

"But she had a stocking cap on, and I go, 'Uh uh, you're going out just like this...' She said, 'Please don't make me. Please don't make me.' I said, 'Not only that, she's not going to wear any make-up.' She said, 'Please!' And she was literally grabbing my leg as I was walking out of the trailer. I was kicking her off like a dog. I laugh at that moment. It's a typical moment in the making of any film of mine. It's a fun memory."

It's not the first time a star has undergone a dramatic 'make-under' for Daniels - R&B superstar Mariah Carey went bare-faced to play a homely social worker in 2009's Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
