All That Doesn’t Glitter Is Gold: Mariah Carey In Precious

Mariah Carey is almost unrecognizable in the new independent film, Precious.

To prepare for the role of social worker, Mrs. Weiss, the chanteuse packed on the pounds; she appears on screen sans makeup and sporting a dark brown do, which only serves to make her pallor look more pronounced.

The part is a far cry from her Razzie Award winning portrayal of Billie Frank in 2001’s Glitter.

The movie, adapted from “Push: A Novel,” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January where it won the Audience Award and Grand Jury prize for best drama.
