British actress Romola Garai is amazed that she's considered a sex symbol - because she's so clumsy.

The 20-year-old I CAPTURE THE CASTLE actress is gaining rave reviews for both her acting ability and good looks.

But Garai says she felt far from sexy while making the BBC period production DANIEL DERONDA recently.

She recalls, "We were filming in Malta for part of the time and it was sweltering. I was wearing all this underwear and big dresses and I just felt like throwing up or fainting. It kills all the sex appeal stone dead."

She adds, "I am so clumsy. If there's a chance of dropping something or crashing into something, I do it. How sexy is that?"
