For one of the world's most beautiful women, Angelina Jolie doesn't make a bad-looking man.
The Hollywood star spent hours in make-up donning fake ears, a fake nose and a latex neck covering to achieve the stunning transformation for her latest movie, Salt.
The effect was so convincing that when her family visited her on set in New York, husband Brad Pitt refused to kiss her and their nine-year-old adopted son Maddox did not even recognise her.
Miss Jolie said: 'I invited Maddox to come and say hi and didn't tell him who I was.
'He hung out with me for a while until I said ''Mad'' - and when he realised it was me he was just freaking out.
'Brad wouldn't kiss me either, he wouldn't go there.'
In the film, an action thriller, the 35-year-old actress plays CIA operative Evelyn Salt who is accused of being a Russian spy.
At one point she disguises herself as a tough male naval officer.
Salt was released in the UK on Friday and has received mixed reviews.
It has been reported that Miss Jolie is to play Marilyn Monroe in a new movie, but she denied that at Salt's London premiere.
She said: ‘I don’t know anything about it.
Erm, I beg to differ - I think she looks horrifying. I don't know if it's because she's so hot as a woman and the difference is jarring or because the prosthetic makeup made her look ugly. Anyhow, even Angelina can't pull the look off.
To be absolutely fair though, her prosthetic makeup isn't the worst part of the movie. THE MOVIE IS. And if you are one of the lucky ones who haven't had the unfortunate chance of watching Salt, then please save yourself the $7 and download the movie illegally.
