Carla Gugino lied about her age to land film role

The sexy star told casting agents she was 14 in a bid to land a part in Shelley Long film Troop Beverly Hills – the actress was 16 at the time.

Coming clean to pal Chelsea Handler on U.S. chat show Chelsea Lately, Gugino, who recently turned 40, reveals, “Once I shot enough of it that I knew they couldn’t actually cut me out, I said to the director, ‘I’m actually 16!’

“He was like, ‘I would not have cast you if I knew that.'”
