One of the biggest challenges Paula Patton faced while filming Warcraft was getting used to the rather unique teeth she was fitted with.

Patton plays Garona Halforcen, a half-human, half-orc, in the big screen version of the computer game favourite, which is due for release this Friday.

It was a role that required the 40-year-old actor to not only green-up – Incredible Hulk style –  to fit in with her clan mates, but also saw Patton fitted with a rather unique set of Gnashers.

Speaking exclusively to Loaded ahead of the film’s release, Patton admitted it took her a while to get used to them.

“It was a challenge to make it comfortable in my mouth so I had to wear them often,” she said.

“[I would wear them] in the house, with my kid and scare him a bit. He actually liked them.

“But then I really came to embrace it – it felt like that was who Garona was – it was the last finishing touch to making me half-orc half-human.”

The 40-year-old ex-wife of pop lothario Robin Thicke is set for a busy couple of weeks.

Netflix will release the latest in Adam Sandler’s new series of films made exclusively for the streaming service, with Patton set for a major role in his latest offering, “The Do Over” which will be available to watch from May 27.

You have to wonder which is worse – wearing uncomfortable dentures for an entire movie or making an entire movie while feeling uncomfortable alongside Adam Sandler.

We know which one we would prefer.
