Sexy actress Michelle Pfeiffer was stunned when movie bosses asked her to lend her vocals to new animated flick Sinbad: LEGEND OF THE SEVEN SEAS - because she's repulsed by her voice.

Pfeiffer, who voices the character ERIS, teams up with the likes of Brad PITT, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Joseph Fiennes in the cartoon adventure.

She says, "I'm always surprised when they call me to do things like this. I think most people don't like the sound of their own voice. It just sounds so much different in your head than the way it comes out.

"I've sort of gotten used to the fact that I don't like my voice because I hear it so much in the work that I do, but it is harder when that's all there is and there's nothing else to sort of divert your attention."
