Charlie Hunnam: Looking At Life Through Pink Tinted Contact Lenses

CHARLIE HUNNAM really suffered for his art while filming the part of an albino in COLD MOUNTAIN - he had to constantly wear pink contact lenses.

As well as the irritable contact lenses, Charlie also had to bleach his hair for the movie - which he says was much harder than anything he had to do for his current role in NICHOLAS NICKLEBY.

He explains, "I have to wear pink contact lenses, which are very uncomfortable. Because albinos are incredibly sensitive to light, the pupils had to be really small, so my vision was really restricted.

"I was walking into things and it was really tricky when I was on horseback. I had to do a lot of riding at night, and if I didn't steer my horse out of the way of the trees he would run straight into them. I fell off the horse twice!"
