The 30-year-old star told Harper's Bazaar; "I'm not Rihanna, I'm not cool. When people come up to me in the street, they often want a hug not a photo, and they want that because they like my work.

"For a long time it was me and her [her manager] against the world. I was seen as this bizarre-world good-girl cartoon that I in no way identified with – very vanilla, very sweet, very accessible and not interesting.

"I had no grit, no sex appeal."
