Los Angeles: Actress Eva Green, who finds the film industry "cold", says she always chose parts which made her feel good over those which presented her as a "boring beautiful girl".
The 33-year-old, who featured in the 2006 Bond film `Casino Royale`, feels 2014 has been great for her courtesy her roles in two big movies - `Sin City: A Dame to Kill For` and `300: Rise of an Empire`, as well as TV show `Penny Dreadful`.
"To tell you the truth. I was not offered something interesting (after `Casino Royale`) by Hollywood. Every role was the boring beautiful girl. Instead of doing that, I made movies that not a lot of people saw but were good for my heart.
"I`ve always found the movie business rather cold, so finding parts to play and having people enjoy them has made this year a miracle for me," she reportedly told a magazine.
She admits she is having a great time with the "strong, sexual" roles she has been offered, and she wishes she was more like them in real life.
"It`s been fun playing these strong, sexual women. Especially in `Sin City...` my character is a real bitch. She uses her body as a weapon. It`s very jubilating to do that," she added.
