Hayek turns Bearded Lady

For Chris Weitz’ Cirque Du Freak…

Can you imagine the lovely Salma Hayek with bushy hair sprouting from her face? Well, anyone who saw Frida can, but for Cirque Du Freak, she’ll be going the whole hog and sporting a lush beard.

Hayek has signed up to play Madame Truska the bearded lady in Paul Weitz’ horror drama, which already stars John C Reilly as a vampire who recruits a 14-year-old (Josh Hutcherson) in his battle with sworn enemies the Vampanese.

The cameras crank next month and Variety has all the details.
