London, May 06 : English model Kelly Brook is focusing all her efforts on becoming one of Britain's A-list Hollywood actresses, it has emerged.
Brook, who recently became single after her split from Billy Zane, has been spending time at her family's home in Rochester, Kent, and according to her friends, the actress is more than ever driven to return to LA.
"Kelly hasn't stopped since she broke up with Billy. She's scarily ambitious and won't be satisfied until she is as big as Catherine Zeta Jones," The Sun quoted a pal as saying.
"Her schedule is jam-packed with auditions and she's confident about her acting future.
"US producers are really interested in new British stars and they've told Kelly they love her down-to-earth, clean-living persona.
"She is seen as a breath of fresh air. They're fed up of rehab stars like Lindsay Lohan and want to make films sparkle again," the friend added.
Brook will really have to struggle to make it to the top, and it may be sometime before she gets there. The one thing that would aid her in her climb would definitely be her body.
"My breasts are a bit of a novelty in California," was what Brook herself admitted to. The other thing is her ability to keep herself in the spotlight with her celebrity boyfriends.
"Kelly can't help being attracted to men she's inspired by, but we all joke that they're good for her career too," her friend said.
"And after all, marrying Michael Douglas never did Catherine any harm," the friend added.
