The StarBeast was given the famous lips of actress Michelle Pfeiffer in Alien 3.


If you, for some reason, finds the lips of Xenomorph in Alien 3 voluptuous, you are right, they are in fact belong to Michelle Pfeiffer. Both H.R. Giger and David Fincher felt that the adult alien should be more sensuous as opposed to physically repulsive. They felt that the face needed to be more feminine and the director told Giger to model the mouth of the adult alien after Michelle Pfeiffer's voluptuous lips. Fincher had this to say about the look of the alien.

"We did give it Michelle Pfeiffer's lips. That's what they're based on. It always had these little thin lips, and I said to Giger, 'let's make it a woman when it comes right up to Ripley.' So it has these big, luscious collagen lips."

Fincher continued and said, "the lips and chin on my new model are better proportioned and give the creature a more erotic appearance." Both Giger and Fincher believed that when the mouth of the alien was shut, that it looked "beautiful and voluptuous." In addition, inside the creature's head, Giger introduced a series of elongated, vertical structures. According to him, it was a "finger-brain, which should move like when wind is blowing over the grain."

Alien 3 is directed by David Fincher and written by David Giler, Walter Hill and Larry Ferguson, from a story by Vincent Ward. It is the third film installment in the Alien franchise. The film stars Sigourney Weaver reprising her role as Ellen Ripley. She and an Alien organism (Tom Woodruff, Jr.) are the only survivors of the Colonial Marine spaceship Sulaco's escape pod's crash on a planet housing a penal colony populated by violent male inmates. Additional roles are played by Charles Dance, Brian Glover, Charles S. Dutton, Ralph Brown, Paul McGann, Danny Webb, Lance Henriksen, Holt McCallany, and Danielle Edmond.
