Eccentric auteur Vincent Gallo has complained to American gossip site PAGE SIX - because they used pleasant photographs of him.

The Brown Bunny director was in the news recently for placing a "cancer curse" on revered US movie critic ROGER EBERT - just days before Ebert revealed he does have cancer.

And Gallo now wants a self-chosen portrait of himself used in all articles on the website, the showbiz arm of THE NEW YORK POST newspaper - so that he looks more sinister.

Gallo says, "I am still ugly (in this photo) but at least I look like I could have really cursed someone."
