NEW YORK – Where has all the glamour gone?
Hollywood's A-list actresses are ditching the designer duds and fancy makeup for roles as maids, checkout chicks and professors in a round of upcoming movies. Newlywed Julia Roberts' long, fiery locks from her Pretty Woman days will be hidden under a dowdy brunette wig in her next movie, Full Frontal, opening this weekend.
Jennifer Aniston may have won fame as the perky, glossy Rachel of Friends, but she will next be seen in the dark indie flick The Good Girl, playing a checkout girl who wears flannel shirts and overalls — and little to no makeup.
Gwyneth Paltrow will tie her golden hair back for her role in Possession as a modern-day English scholar who buries her nose in books — and her curves in sweaters, scarves and jeans.
Not to be left out, the bootylicious J.Lo will hide her light under a bushel as the main character in Made in New York (formerly titled The Chambermaid), and the normally tousled Meg Ryan is sporting a straight, dyed-brown 'do for In the Cut, in which she plays a New York writing teacher.
