The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy has said she doesn't think she's "beautiful enough" to be a film star.
The actor, 24, received the best reviews of her career to date in the Netflix drama, in which she plays chess prodigy Elizabeth Harmon.
“I have never and I don’t think I will ever think of myself as beautiful," she told The Sun, adding: “I don’t think I’m beautiful enough to be in films."
Taylor-Joy, who was signed to Storm Management modelling agency when she was 16, continued: "It sounds pathetic and my boyfriend warns me people will think I’m an absolute d*** for saying these things, but I just think I’m weird looking."
She said she never goes to watch her films in the cinema and "genuinely had a panic attack" while shooting Emma.
"I thought, ‘I am the first ugly Emma and I can’t do this’, because the first line in the movie is, ‘I’m handsome, clever and rich’."
Taylor-Joy, who will next be seen in Edgar Wright film Last Night in Soho, was recently cast in George Miller's untitled Mad Max sequel.
