London, Oct 24 : Bond girl Olga Kurylenko is tired of people assuming that she's not very bright because she's beautiful.
The model-turned-actress stars in new 007 movie 'Quantum of Solace' and is determined to be taken as a serious thespian - not just a pretty face.
Kurylenko admits that as an attractive female, she is often stereotyped as less intelligent.
"All the ugly people must be talented if the beautiful people are all stupid. I was just born like this. I didn't ask for it," the Daily Express.
However, the actress doesn't exactly help her mission to be taken seriously by posing semi-clad for endless photoshoots, purring: "I've never had a problem going topless or getting naked in a film.
"I sent my body double back. I wanted to do the scenes myself. The sex scenes are OK, I can handle it. I'm used to it," she added.
