Screen beauty Liv Tyler feels intimidated by the Hollywood lifestyle - but forces herself to blend in to secure the best roles.

The LORD OF THE RINGS star - who has never lived in movie capital Los Angeles - admits to feeling "generally anxious" by Tinsel Town, but the 26-year-old is determined to persevere while she's still getting good roles.

Liv, 26, says, "I'm anxious by nature. I worry about the people around me. I want to take care of everything and everyone.

"I have always suffered from this general anxiety that is enough to make me feel there's something wrong with me or my life.

"I feel like I can't blend into the Hollywood scene. I feel like a round peg in a square hole.

"Since film is my passion, however, I adapt, and lately I've been more serious about finding good roles and trying to throw myself into the process."
