Black Eyed Peas star Fergie was nervous about her audition for movie musical NINE - because she feared the paparazzi would snap her in the outfit she was wearing to land the role of prostitute Saraghina.
The singer turned down a world tour to try out for the part in Rob Marshall's movie spectacular - and she went all out to land her dream role.
That meant dressing the part - and then trying to avoid the snappers on the way to the audition.
She tells WENN, "I remember I was getting ready for this audition and I learned, as a little girl, when you want something you walk into something as that character.
"So I'm getting dressed and making my lips more fuller and red and contouring my nose to make it look more Italian and I'm doing my hair and making everything look bigger, pushing my chest up.
"We're in London and I was just scared the paparazzi was gonna get a picture of me walking out of the hotel looking like this and saying, 'What was she thinking?' I have not seen my audition tape but I'm assuming it's pretty risque."
