"Drop Dead Gorgeous came out in theaters 20 years ago to bad reviews and bad box office, costing $15 million and taking in 10. It became a cult classic and for its 20th anniversary here is some trivia.

-The film was based on screenwriter Lona Williams own Minnesota beauty pagent days.

- On the first day of filming Kirstie Alley announced to the crew that she had just quit smoking, was on a diet and just got her period.

-DDG was Amy Adams first film. Adams" Everything about that film was so surreal to me. That was the first time I relized, " I think I could go to Hollywood and at least get some commercials or something".

-The scene where Denise Richard's character performs the Frankie Valli hit" I can't take my eyes off of you" while dancing with a Jesus doll on a crucifix. Some extras were not amused.
Richard's " Halfway through the performance they were offended and actually walked off set".

"Drop Dead Gorgeous" is currently streaming on HULU
