Buxom screen star Liv Tyler is risking her Hollywood career - by refusing to lose weight.

The 26-year-old has been told by movie bosses she risks missing out on top film roles unless she reduces the size of her shapely figure.

But Liv - who trimmed to a svelte 57 kilograms (nine stones) for her part as heroine ARWEN in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, before piling 13 kilograms (two stones) back on after shooting wrapped - insists she is happy with her weight and doesn't want to diet.

She says, "I've been told that if I lose weight I'd have more work, but I refuse to submit myself to Hollywood standards.

"To the rest of the world I am slim and I like the way I am."
