Vanessa Paradis - Vanessa Paradis Loved Playing 'Ugly' Character

Vanessa Paradis loved playing an ''ugly'' person in her new movie.

The beautiful French actress stars as obsessive mother Jacqueline in 'Café De Flore' and Vanessa was delighted to play a character who doesn't rely on her looks.

She said: ''This woman is rough but everything she does is out of pure love. There's no seduction, no femininity in the character. The hair, the shoes, the outfits all played a big part in it, they're quite ugly.''

Vanessa - who has two children, Lily-Rose, 12 and Jack, 10, with partner Johnny Depp - also found it interesting to play a character who has nothing.

She told Stylist magazine: ''For the first time I got to play someone who is so far away from myself. I haven't done many movies and this was so exciting because Jacqueline has nothing in life - no husband, no money, no friends, no family - so the love she has for her little boy is everything. She doesn't want to give up on him as society wants her to. She's very brave but is also a monster of love and fear.''
