The actress says her early roles have made her a "vanilla" actress.

Anne Hathaway thinks she has no sex appeal

Les Miserables actress Anne Hathaway believes she has been stereotyped as a "good girl" character because of her early career roles, including her breakout part as unwitting princess Mia Thermopolis in The Princess Diaries, which has limited her career choices.

Anne proved many doubters wrong with her sexually charged portrayal of Catwoman in the latest Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises but she isn't upset at being considered a "vanilla" actress.

Speaking in the February issue of UK Harper's Bazaar magazine, Anne said:

"I'm not Rihanna; I'm not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work.

"For a long time it was me and [my manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good girl cartoon that I in no way identified with - very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting. I had no grit, no sex appeal.

"It doesn't help that that new crop of girls is so gorgeous, and so 22 years old. But I'm excited about [being 30]. I figured out a lot of things that work for me; I have the love thing figured out."

In the interview the brunette beauty also shared how her husband Adam Shulman - who she married in a private ceremony last September - taught her to trust again after her ex-boyfriend Raffaello Follieri was sentenced to four-and-a-half years in prison for fraud in 2008.

Anne admits she can't help but "light up" around the actor - who she started dating in November 2008 - and she just wants to spend as much time with him as she can.

Recalling her trust issues after her split from Raffaello, Anne said:

"It was scary. But as the days wore on it kept getting better and better.

"I found that the love I found for [Adam] made me more trusting of everyone, and the more I started to see who I had become.

"He walks into a room, and I light up, I can't help it. A few days into [filming 'Les Miserables'] I said, 'I'm having too much fun, I just want to play with you and I need to be really sad right now.' "

    Who cares if she lacks sex appeal? There are millions of strippers around the world who have heaps of sex appeal..... Why does she need sex appeal? Do people only got to the movies and watch films to get sexually aroused? There are films fro that purpose and there called pornos. She is a beautiful and talented actress, isn't that enough ????

    I agree with her. No sex appeal whatsoever. Those giant eyes are really scary.
