Sienna Miller no longer feels she has to fit Hollywood's beauty mould.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Sienna Miller is letting go of vanity.

The actress is considered one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and has fronted campaigns of the likes of Hugo Boss and Burberry.

While looks no doubt play an important part in her industry, she's trying to focus more on other qualities.

"What I've realised is you have to let go of looking beautiful, have no vanity," she explained to US edition of Marie Claire. "I'm focusing on not having to be glamorous now."

The 33-year-old has turned her attention to grittier roles recently, among them the wife of soldier Chris Kyle in the Oscar-winning American Sniper. For the star, it's far more rewarding than being cast based on her looks.

"You're always replaceable, and in your 20s, they want you to look a certain way," she reasoned, "but once I turned 30, there was a career shift. In my 20s, I was [playing] the Girlfriend, but now I want to focus on characters, on being a real person."

Up next for Sienna is drama Mississippi Grind, in which she teams up with Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn. Then there's also chef comedy Burnt, which also features her American Sniper co-star Bradley Cooper.

"I wore no make-up, [shaved] half my head, and gave myself a Little Lord Fauntleroy fringe, tattoos, and piercings. I was meant to be quite tough, a female chef in a man's world," she revealed of what fans can expect from Burnt.
