Carey Mulligan has never felt sexy.

The 24-year-old actress - who recently split from her 'Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps' co-star Shia LaBeouf - hates wearing skimpy clothes and thinks she is too sensible to be considered a sex symbol.

She said: "I've never felt like a sexy person. I've always felt like a sensible person. I've always felt absurd wearing anything revealing."

Talking of the Hollywood trend to look a certain way, the British star added that she has never felt bad about her looks - although she won't wear short skirts because she doesn't like her legs.

She told Britain's Elle magazine: "I've always felt different here. I remember going up for auditions, walking into rooms of girls in denim minis, with cut off tank tops, tanned legs, long hair and manicures, thinking, 'Erm.' But it never made me feel bad. I've never felt pressure to look like that."

Instead of worrying about her wardrobe, Carey is more interested in being a good actress who is respected for her talent.

She said: "I'm not trying to sell myself as a visual. I'm selling my willingness to play a part really well. If your body doesn't look normal, how can you convey normal people, how can you be relatable?"
