Christina Ricci is set to play a woman with a pig's snout

The beautiful actress will stun fans with her bizarre role in upcoming comedy 'Penelope' - which also stars blonde beauty Reese Witherspoon.

She is quoted as saying: "It's a modern day fable about a girl who is born with a pig's nose.

The only way to break the curse is for someone to accept and love her."

Ricci revealed her agent was nervous about offering the role because she would be offended.

Earlier this year, the 'Monster' star revealed she wants to marry boyfriend Adam Goldberg.

She confessed: "
I would marry Adam, because I'm very traditional and conservative.

"I definitely want children, ideally after I'm married, but you can't control everything."
