Famke Janssen only gets offered roles as "aliens" and weird creatures.
Famke Janssen, who is best known for her performances as psychic mutant Jean Grey in the X-Men films, thinks she only gets weird roles and wishes she was put up for a bigger variety of.
She told the New York Post newspaper: "I am nothing like the characters I play, but I know I look like I would be. Of course, when you're Meryl Streep or Daniel Day-Lewis, it's a different story, but most of us are not that lucky. It's not like I turn down those parts and opt for the alien creatures. It's what's offered to me."
As well as not being offered a variety of roles, Famke recently claimed men are "threatened" by her in Hollywood.
The 47-year-old beauty - who played Bond Girl Xenia Onatopp in 1995 movie GoldenEye - believes some male actors in the industry don't feel comfortable in her presence but she refuses to change the way she is just to please guys.
She said: "My boyfriend [Cole Frates] says men get threatened by me and I notice it sometimes. I've seen women dumb themselves down in order to deal with men in Hollywood. I've never done it. I don't know how to, I'm too Dutch. I think we're way too straightforward as people to do that."
