Actress Jessica Biel is glad Hollywood film bosses are obsessed with appearances - because she can use her looks to get her "foot in the door" for movie roles.
The former model, who is dating pop star Justin Timberlake, was ranked second in FHM magazine's 100 Sexiest Women in the World of 2008 poll.
She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "Your face and your body can get your foot in the door, obviously. And I'm thankful for that."
But the actress is sad that looks can only get you so far - and that men are dominating the film industry.
She adds, "But I think it's almost historical in Hollywood that there just aren't so many good parts for women as there are for men.
"I think as long as you're playing the wife or the girlfriend to the lead then you're always playing second fiddle to the guys."
