London, May 4 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 contactmusic.com.
“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 InStyle 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
