"Hellboy" star Ron Perlman is set to shock fans by playing a transsexual former convict in oddball new movie "Frankie Goes Boom". The movie star insists he makes a very ugly woman, who changed her name from Phil to Phyllis, in the film - but he had a great time in drag.

Perlman tells WENN, "I'm wearing a dress, a wig, I had my legs, chest and arms shaved. I had a beautiful pedicure and a lovely manicure, and I was the ugliest woman you've ever seen in your life, which is why I took the job."

"They offered me two different roles and I went for the transsexual because I felt like when the door opens and you see that it's me, it should get a 'Yuck!'"

I don't think Ron could be ugly in anything. His eyes say, I know I'm supposed to be a bad ass but I'm really a pussy cat.
