Famke Janssen only gets offered roles as "aliens"
The 48-year-old actress who is best known for her performances as psychic mutant Jean Grey in the `X-Men` films wishes she was put up for a bigger variety of parts but she is happy to be to the go-to girl for odd roles.
She told the New York Post newspaper: "I am nothing like the characters I play, but I know I look like I would be. Of course, when you`re Meryl Streep or Daniel Day-Lewis, it`s a different story, but most of us are not that lucky. It`s not like I turn down those parts and opt for the alien creatures. It`s what`s offered to me."
As well as not being offered a variety of roles, Famke recently claimed men are "threatened" by her in Hollywood.
The 47-year-old beauty - who played Bond Girl Xenia Onatopp in 1995 movie `GoldenEye` - believes some male actors in the industry don`t feel comfortable in her presence but she refuses to change the way she is just to please guys.
She said: "My boyfriend [Cole Frates] says men get threatened by me and I notice it sometimes. I`ve seen women dumb themselves down in order to deal with men in Hollywood. I`ve never done it. I don`t know how to, I`m too Dutch. I think we`re way too straightforward as people to do that."
