Rosamund Pike - Rosamund Pike: I'm Not Just Hired For My Looks

Rosamund Pike gets ''really annoyed'' with people who think she is only hired for her looks.

The 33-year-old star - who played MI6 double agent Miranda Frost in 2002 James Bond movie 'Die Another Day' - always wanted to be accepted as a ''good actress'' because of the stigma attached to portraying a Bond Girl.

She said: ''I think being accepted as a good actress is all I ever wanted. That's the only stigma that comes with a Bond film - that people are quick to assume you were hired just for your looks.

''That kind of thing really annoys me because actually [director] Lee Tamahori hired me for something else.''

The blonde beauty - who portrayed Jane Bennett in 2005 motion picture 'Pride and Prejudice' - insists she is always working to ''confound people's expectations'' of her ability because she is ''very serious'' about her career.

She added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Things turn all the time. 'Pride & Prejudice' meant people saw a warm character having just seen a cold one [in Bond].

''Another one was 'An Education' because I made people laugh and they probably thought I couldn't be funny.

''I just want to confound people's expectations all the time because I'm very serious about what I do.

''I work hard at it and think about it all the time. Work is the foremost thing in my life.''
