Demi Moore lost out on starring in cult movie FLASHDANCE because she wasn't sexy enough, according to legendary screenwriter JOE EZSTERHAS.

The writer and casting bosses couldn't decide whether to sign Moore or Jennifer Beals up for the sexy 1983 film - so they asked burly crew members who they thought was hotter.

Ezsterhas says, "I brought in the grips and the teamsters and the gaffers and the toughest, rowdiest guys on the lot and said, 'I'm gonna show you three screen tests and you're gonna tell me which of these three women you'd most like to love.'

"The overwhelming winner was Jenny."
