I don`t feel sexy: Carey Mulligan

London: Hollywood actress Carey Mulligan says she has never felt sexy in her entire life and is uncomfortable wearing revealing clothes.

The `An Education` star who recently split from her `Wall Street` co-star Shia LaBeouf hates wearing skimpy clothes as she finds herself too sensible to be considered as a sex symbol, Elle magazine reported.

"I`ve never felt like a sexy person. I`ve always felt like a sensible person. I`ve always felt absurd wearing anything revealing," said the 24-year-old actress.

Talking of the Hollywood trend which demands to look a certain way, the British star said that she respects her looks but will never wear short skirts as she hates her legs.

"I`ve always felt different here. I remember going up for auditions, walking into rooms of girls in denim minis, with cut off tank tops, tanned legs, long hair and manicures, thinking, `Erm.` But it never made me feel bad. I`ve never felt pressure to look like that," she said.

Instead of worrying about her wardrobe, Mulligan is more interested in becoming a good actress who is known for her talent.

"I`m not trying to sell myself as a visual. I`m selling my willingness to play a part really well. If your body doesn`t look normal, how can you convey normal people, how can you be relatable?," Mulligan added.
