Thandie Newton - Thandie Newton Wants Freckles

Thandie Newton wishes she had freckles.

The 39-year-old actress admits she was so keen for the pigmentation markings she even considered having them put on to her face temporarily.

She said: "I wish I had freckles - I once considered having temporary henna freckles.

"I do have the odd beauty spot and these are often airbrushed out in pictures, which annoys the hell out of me."

The 'Crash' actress believes people should make the most of any unusual features they have and embrace their imperfections.

She said: "I love odd-coloured eyes, wonky teeth, something slightly off about a face - they are the things that make us unique and beautiful."

However she admits it took her time to accept herself because when she was younger there were so few black women on British television.

She added: "When I was growing up, the only woman on TV who looked like me was the newsreader Moira Stewart. Then Sir Michael Caine married his beautiful wife Shakira, and the model Iman because famous - they were the women I identified with.

"But there weren't many women of colour in the public eye."
