New York, Feb 7 : When it comes to deglamourising for a movie role, Mariah Carey would not say yes for a fake nose.
While there have been actresses like Charlize Theron and Nicole Kidman who went to extremes to get into the character they were playing, but Carey was a little too conscious to de-glam for her latest role in "Tennessee," produced by Lee Daniels.
"Mariah is the nicest person to work with; everyone loves her. But she was uncomfortable being uglied up for the part," New York daily quoted the source, as saying.
In the movie, the 37-year-old singer is portraying a Southern waitress who sets off with two brothers in search of their father.
Though, the singer cum actress did consent to cornrows, she refused to put on the fake nose and bushy eyebrows that had been conceived for the part.
When she saw the nose, she called her people and decided against it. She was not a diva about it, but she did seem very insecure about her appearance," said the source.
Meanwhile, a source close to Daniels denied that the production had suggested she wear a fake nose.
