Brad Pitt’s makeup artist does scary job on Sonu SoodApril 24th, 2009 - 8:58 am ICT by IANS

Mumbai, April 24 (IANS) Sonu Sood has just finished shooting for “City Of Life” made by UAE filmmaker Ali Mostafa. A major part of the film requires the Bollywood actor to be badly disfigured and the makeup artist chosen to bring about half-mutilated face was none other than Jean Ann Black, who worked on Brad Pitt’s face in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”.
The actor is all praise for Ann Black.
“Actually half the face of my character gets mutilated. I couldn’t believe it when I saw what miracle had been worked by the makeup artist. I was horrified to see my own face in the mirror,” Sonu told IANS.
Sonu, who was recently seen in films like “Singh Is Kinng”, “Jodhaa Akbar” and “Ek Vivaah… Aisa Bhi”, has just finished shooting for “City Of Life” in Dubai with Alexandra Maria Lara.
“What she did to my face was stunning and shocking. My makeup used to take three-four hours every morning. I had to sit patiently as 50 percent of my face disappeared under makeup - literally. And then there were these special lenses not just for the cornea but the entire eye which gave it a scary clotted eye.”
Sonu is glad his little son wasn’t with him.
“He’d have got really frightened. I did when I saw myself. People who’ve seen what she has done can’t believe the transformation. They say the makeup artist has done as good a job on my face as she did with Brad Pitt,” said Sonu.
And to further complete the Brad-Benjamin Button picture Sonu even has the actor who played Brad’s father in the film as his co-star.
“Jason Fleming who played Brad Pitt’s father in ‘Benjamin Button’ plays the villain in ‘City Of Life’,” he said.
