OSCAR-winning actress Sissy Spacek and co-star Alan Cumming have transsexual sex in a controversial new movie.

In SOUTHERN COMFORT - not related to Walter Hill's classic 1981 film of the same name - the 54-year-old actress plays Robert Eads, a female-to-male transsexual who falls for Lola Cola, a male-to-female transsexual, played by Cumming.

CARRIE star Spacek, who wears a prosthetic nose and a beard in the movie, is delighted with her new role, reports website PAGESIX.COM.

She says, "I'm thrilled, but it's going to be hard. I'll do the best I can. If I go down in flames, I can throw away all of my men's clothes."

X-MEN star Cumming, is equally enthusiastic: "It's such an amazing, tender love story, and a great challenge. We've got to do sex."
