Jessica Biel is tiring of topping sexiest woman lists - because directors are refusing to hire her for her acting skills.
The Illusionist star admits she's always struggling to get the parts she wants because moviemakers consider her "too sexy."
She tells the upcoming June (07) issue of Elle magazine, "(One director told me,) 'I'm not looking for the sexiest woman; I'm looking for the girl next door.'"
And the Blade: Trinity star, 25, admits she wants roles that are being offered to pal and one-time rumoured love rival Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
She adds, "Parts I really want aren't going to me, like The Other Boleyn Girl with Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman.
"I don't want to say that there's nothing I love that I can't have. But there's still the occasional script that the director doesn't want to see you for. They want that top tier of girls."
