OSCAR winner GWYNETH PALTROW is to become obese for her new movie.
The SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE actress is to swap her flighty frame for a flabbier one in SHALLOW HAL. The blonde beauty will play unusual love interest to HIGH FIDELITY star JACK BLACK, who sees inner beauty after a spell is cast on him.
Jack says Gwyneth will wear, "a big prosthetic suit like EDDIE MURPHY in THE NUTTY PROFESSOR". The film is director by the FARRELLY BROTHERS, who made THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY and ME, MYSELF AND IRENE. (ES/WNWCAN/CPT)
