Washington, October 25 : Mena Suvari, best known for her acclaimed performances in 'American Beauty' and 'American Pie', has admitted that she loves 'a good scandal' in a script.
The 29-year-old, who played her last hair-raising role in 'American Beauty' a decade ago, revealed that she couldn't resist a well-scripted scandal, and was most impressed when she was offered with one in her latest movie 'Sex Lies And Sin City: The Ted Binion Scandal.'
"Well, the script came to me, I read it and it really appealed to me," CBS News quoted her as telling them.
"I sat down with our director, Peter Medak. I was really taken by it.
"I have always been interested in criminal psychology and read several books. I love a good scandal," she added.
The actress further said that she went to great length-including chopping off her hair, watching trial footage, and 'Court TV' interviews-to get into the skin of her character.
