The 25-year-old, who is playing a cameo in actor Sacha Baron Cohen's new comedy film "The Dictator", said public will relate to her more easily if she does some light hearted films, The Sun online reported.
"When I first started acting I was always playing the bitchy or mean girl, then I was playing these cool, robotic women. I was growing tired of playing those kinds of characters and reinforcing this stereotype of me and having to play up to that when I was doing interviews.
"Now I feel I can be myself again. It's given me the chance to get away from that sexy, icy image that I've been stuck with. I think the public can relate to me more easily in these kinds of movies," she said.
