British star Paul Bettany is terrified of becoming "too cool" for mainstream cinema.

The 33-year-old Master And Commander: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD fears he'll be typecast and miss out on exciting film roles if he is labelled "cool" - a trap many skilled actors have fallen into.

He says, "I am wary of being seen as too cool.

"There are a lot of actors who are very cool and do cool movies, but sneak off and do an AMERICAN EXPRESS advert so long as it is never shown in Britain or America.

"I don't want to do that sort of stuff to earn money because I'm considered too cool for mainstream roles.

"A director like Ang Lee can make a western, a monster flick and a costume drama.

"I want to be free to do the same sort of thing."
