The bulky actor took the role in 'Frankie Goes Boom' because he would make the 'ugliest woman you've ever seen in your life'.
"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!'"
