Rosamund Pike was “never an attractive teenager”. The 34-year-old star – who played MI6 double agent Miranda Frost in 2002 James Bond movie ‘Die Another Day‘ -believes she gets offered a variation of roles because she’s not pigeonholed as attractive but insists her changing looks helped her shimmy into the spotlight.
Speaking to Total Film magazine, she said: “I was never an attractive teenager or child. Then suddenly somebody found me attractive and it was a turning point.” The blonde beauty previously said she gets “really annoyed” when people think she just gets hired for her looks and wants to be accepted as a “good actress” instead.
She said previously: “I think being accepted as a good actress is all I ever wanted. That’s the only stigma that comes with a Bond film – that people are quick to assume you were hired just for your looks. “That kind of thing really annoys me because actually [director] Lee Tamahori hired me for something else.” – Femalefirst
