LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Jack Black is just as insecure about his looks as Gwyneth Paltrow's character in their film, ``Shallow Hal,'' now in theaters.

Paltrow _ in elaborate latex makeup and body suit that added nearly 200 pounds to her frame _ plays a self-conscious woman in the Farrelly brothers' new movie. Black plays a man who's hypnotized and sees Paltrow's character as thin and beautiful.

Just how insecure is Black?

When he watches himself in the movie, this is what he sees: ``Mostly my big fat head. And beady eyes. And, uh, misshapen torso. And, uh, clown feet.''

However, the 32-year-old actor, who first gained attention as a know-it-all record store clerk in last year's ``High Fidelity,'' joked with reporters recently that he did such a good job, he carries the film ``all the way to the bank.''
