Jared Padalecki has been sacked from his latest movie after it became apparent to the director that the star of Supernatural and several films including House of Wax, had been to the hairdressers and got a hair cut.
"The whole point was that he had long hair," said director Raymond Palowski.
The film was to be called The Accidental Transvestite, about a man who accidentally ended up dressed in women's clothing, only to discover he liked it.
"He cuts his hair, he doesn't look like a woman, simple. We only cast him in the role because he already looked like a big girl."
Padalecki understands Palowski's frustrations.
"If I was in his shoes, I'd be pissed too," said Padalecki. "But when I realised what the role actually was, I wanted off the movie. My contract said the only way off would be to be sacked. I couldn't quit, or I wouldn't get paid. It may seem a bit drastic to look more like Daniel Day than Doris Day, but I needed off before they got me in a dress."
Rumours are currently flying around Hollywood that Palowski is hoping to cast Russel Brand in the role. Rumours that Palowski doesn't deny.
"Of course I'd have Brand tomorrow," he said. "He's got girly hair too. He'd be perfect. Plus he's British and an actor, so he's bound to enjoy dressing up as a woman."
Brand too, would like the role. "Of course I'd like the role," he said. "They'd pay me. I like money, me. I don't see why he's only going after actors wif long hair, like, though. Has the dude not heard of wigs?"
