Brooklyn Decker wants ugly roles

Brooklyn Decker stars in the new film Battleship

Brooklyn Decker says that she would gladly cover up her good looks for a film role.

The Battleship actress - who has graced the covers of Sports Illustrated, modelled for Victoria's Secret and been voted one of the sexiest women alive - would willingly play down her looks like Charlize Theron in Monster.

"I would do something like Monster. Absolutely. I'm certainly not talented enough to take on a role like Monster at this point but yes, absolutely," she said.

"There were days on Battleship when I didn't have make-up on, just dirt. That is part of acting. In my opinion, if a girl goes into a role and says, 'I've got to look perfect in every scene', she probably isn't into making movies for the right reason."

Brooklyn - who next stars in What To Expect When You're Expecting - would like to follow in the footsteps of former models such as Charlize and Cameron Diaz.

"You look at Julia Roberts, Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. They are stunning women and if they can push themselves to a point where they are completely different to who they are naturally and they can lose their beauty in a character, that's when the real good stuff happens," she continued.

"That's one of the challenges - finding something where you can play a character that has more to her. I think the idea of challenging yourself physically will help with the emotional side as well and I welcome that kind of challenge," she said.
