Anna Friel - Anna Friel feared film ageing

Anna Friel was terrified she'd look old forever after filming 'The Look of Love'.

The 36-year-old actress portrays Jean Raymond - the wife of porn baron Paul Raymond - in the biopic and because the film shows the character from the ages of 22 and 58, Anna had to spend several hours in make-up every day, and was concerned the effects would be lasting.

She said: ''They used a technique called stippling to make me look older. It glues all of the creases around your eyes together and it takes hours for it to go back to normal.

''I would age years in a day and think it was going to stay that way forever.''

Despite her fears, Anna enjoyed the role, particularly because of her wardrobe - even if it was a source of amusement to Steve Coogan, who plays her on-screen spouse.

She added to Grazia magazine: ''I loved my outfits. I loved the 70s costumes because I really like that whole Jane Berkin look.

''In one scene I went blonde so I wore a wig. We modeled the look on Marilyn Monroe, which was fine until Steve told me I looked like Moors murderer Myra Hindley. Steve looked great in costume though, it's funny seeing him in anything.''
