Britt Ekland is furious OSCAR winning actress Charlize Theron has been cast to play her in the new Peter Sellers biopic - calling the decision "nonsense".

Swedish Ekland, who was married to the legendary British comedic actor between 1964 and 1968, deems Theron an inappropriate choice to portray her in THE LIFE AND DEATH OF PETER SELLERS - because of their obvious height and age difference.

She fumes, "This actress is six foot tall. I am five foot five inches.

"She is 27. I was 20. It is nonsense."

Ekland recently threatened legal action against the makers of the movie, claiming she wasn't consulted over the film.
