SAN DIEGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One actress is not suited for wearing one of the most famous suits in movie history.

When it came time to put on the iconic light suit for Tron: Legacy – the revamped version of the classic ’80s flick hitting theaters this December – actress Beau Garrett had no idea what she was in for.

Turns out the shiny, flashing suit is a real pain in the butt to wear.

She explains, “I hate that thing. It was the most freaking difficult thing you could wear. The most claustrophic outfit ever.”

But at least it was no sweat actually putting on the gear.

The material used for the suit was so unbreathable, Garrett says she never even broke a sweat on set.

After all was said and done, the Tron: Legacy actress says she had no intention of asking to keep the suit as a souvenir.

Besides, it’s not very flattering anyway.

She jokes, “You can’t look good in it. It’s like a onesie babies wear.”
