Booth: Don't judge me on my looks

Douglas Booth says he doesn't want to get film roles for his looks.

The Romeo & Juliet star, 22, is constantly hailed as a heartthrob and won a trophy for Most Stylish Man at the GQ Men Of The Year awards.

But he said: "There's a lot of people I admire - not that I'm comparing myself to them - like Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp, who, when they were my age, there was this focus on their looks.

"Then they just forgot that. You work your way out of it."

Douglas, who is reported to have rekindled his relationship with Miley Cyrus, told GQ magazine magazine that he is about to transform himself for an under wraps movie role - even more so than he did for his breakthrough part as Boy George in Worried About The Boy.

And he is starring in Jupiter Ascending with Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum, a movie from the Wachowskis, famous for The Matrix.

"They're fascinating. You can ask them about a prop and they'll give you a 30 minute explanation about how it sits in the world they created," he said.
