SEX pot Scarlett Johansson is adamant her good looks have cost her film roles.

The actress, 27, claims her sex symbol states have resulted in her losing out artistically.

During a recent interview, Scarlett discussed if she has lost out on roles because she is sexy.

“That has happened to me before, yeah,” she said. “That’s always an unfortunate thing to figure out, ‘Why can’t you see?!’

“For me, I would imagine when casting someone, you would want to challenge yourself in some way. It is so interesting to see actors transform. There are certainly plenty of times when I am definitely not sexy.’

“I live a relatively healthy lifestyle, I think. I’m not overly strict. I like to go out and enjoy myself and drink a couple of glasses of wine and stay out late occasionally and eat a slice of cake.

“I work out and eat well most of the time and try to get some rest. [I eat] lots of kale. I try to stay away from meat and dairy and foods like that.”

Meanwhile, Scarlett is set to be paid $20 million to star in the Avengers sequel.
