London: Actress Eva Green admits she gets depressed if she has to go on a diet because she loves gorging on food.
The ‘Dark Shadows’ actress was once told she had to lose weight for a role. But she found going on an all-soup eating plan made her miserable and she could not do it again, reports a website.
"Before my first film, the casting director asked me to lose some weight, saying, `On screen you`re going to look much fatter`," she told a magazine.
"I started drinking soups and then I was like, `I can`t do it, I can`t go on a diet`. It`s hell, it makes you very depressed - food is so important to me. I couldn`t go on," she added.
Green admits she feels like an "ugly duckling" in Hollywood, but would not undergo cosmetic surgery to improve how she felt about herself.
"It`s not all about physique and how beautiful you look. In this business actors who have Botox or surgery make you very aware of age. It`s awful. In Los Angeles, I feel like the ugly duckling, like I`m from Venus or something," she added
