Al Pacino originally wanted Glenn Close to be his co-star in Scarface - but producers didn't think she was sexy enough.
The actor played a gangster in the 1983 film, and thought Close was perfect to play his sexy sidekick Elvira Hancock.
But producer Martin Bregman didn't see Close, then aged 36, as the right woman for the role - and the part went to Michelle Pfeiffer, according to Ken Tucker, author of Scarface Nation.
Tucker tells New York gossip column PageSix.com, "I said to Al, 'Elvira has to be half a hooker. Glenn Close is many things, but she is not half a hooker.' "
