Remove your extensions and fake lashes ladies, because if you do, you could be in a chance of working alongside Mel Gibson.

According to a casting notice, Mel is looking for female extras in Ireland to work on his new movie, The Professor and The Madman.

They're specifically looking for females who are 5'3 – 5'8 in height, with a 26' – 28' waist and a bust size of 34' – 36'. Oh, and you must fit into a size 8-10.

The casting call reads: ""No fake tan or nails. Hair must be natural colour- NO DYED HAIR. Hair must be medium or long in length –No shaved heads or undercuts. No plucked/shaved eyebrows or obvious tattoos and body decorations."

Not fussy at all, eh?
