Washington, Apr 8 (ANI): Hollywood actress Mandy Moore is keen to shed her "girl next door" image, and is eager to land more decent and powerful roles.
Moore, whose last flick was 'License To Wed', has not taken up any acting assignment because she wants to do meaningful roles, and has decided to consider only the roles she thinks are well-tailored.
Moore insists that she can deliver powerful performance if offered a worthy role, and that she is ready to toil to get her capability recognized.
"That won't cut it anymore. I don't want to be a wallflower. I don't want to be shy. Give me the opportunity to get in the room and have a conversation as to why I know I can do this. It's OK that you see me as this person, but I'm an actress, and I'll work my a** off to play the part," Contactmusic quoted Moore as telling Marie Claire magazine.
"It has to be right. I've had the opportunity to play the drug dealer who gets gang-raped, and I'm like, for what reason? Doing it just to do it? To just show people that I can be sexy or dark?
I don't want to do something just to make that point. It needs to happen organically and I'm really confident it will. I'm a pretty patient person, and I'll wait until we find the right stuff," she added. (ANI)
