Denise Richards living A Beautiful Life

When she’s not in the tabloids thanks to her stormy marriage or trying to convince the world that she’s actually a nuclear scientist who can help James Bond save the world, Denise Richards likes to appear in films where she gets her kit off.

Before you sigh, tut and think, “put ‘em away, luv… we’ve seen ‘em”, read on. She’s ditching mainstream tat for edgy indie drama A Beautiful Life that Alejandro Chomski plans to start directing this summer in LA.

There’s no word on the plot yet, though we do know that Wendy Hammond based the script on her play, and the movie already boasts a cast including Jesse Garcia, Debi Mazar, Michael Madsen and Dana Delany.
