Famke Janssen claims she only gets offered roles as aliens and mutants and wishes she was lucky enough to play a variety of different roles.
Famke Janssen only gets offered roles as ''aliens'' and weird creatures.
The 48-year-old actress who is best known for her performances as psychic mutant Jean Grey in the 'X-Men' films wishes she was put up for a bigger variety of parts but she is happy to be to the go-to girl for odd roles.
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.''
