Peter Sarsgaard has blasted weak actors for always picking characters they know they're good at playing.

Unlike many stars, who insist on playing parts that are similar to them, the BOYS DON'T CRY actor - currently dating MAGGIE GYLLENHAAL - is comfortable leaving his roles to fate.

He explains to British movie magazine HOTDOG, "Actors are afraid of everything. Some actors, their goodwill and charm are in every role and they need to find roles that fit in with that.

"I think it's natural selection. (The roles) choose you as much as you choose them."
