Former All Saints beauty Shaznay Lewis keeps turning down lucrative roles in movie projects - fearing she's not ready to take on such a huge challenge.

The PURE SHORES singer had a supporting role in surprise smash BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM alongside Keira Knightley, but is reluctant to go before the cameras again, until she's more sure of her talent.

Shaznay explains, "I'm no fool. I know I'm not ready for any larger roles yet. Music is something that I've always done but with acting it's different.

"It would be great to do something completely new but at 28 learning something like that can be hard.

"Anyway, I'm not killing myself to make it as a film star."
