Los Angeles: Actress Jessica Alba says she never made a deliberate effort to cultivate a sexy image with her movie roles.

The 33-year-old, who has daughters Honor, six, and Haven, two, with husband Cash Warren, is best known for playing dancer Nancy Callahan in 'Sin City' and superhero Sue Storm in 'Fantastic Four'. She says a majority of her film roles are only "sexy" because of her figure.

"I never sought them out. I was playing a superhero and all of a sudden when they put me in a superhero uniform, they called it sexy. I was covered head to toe, but everything turns into sexy because I have a body,” contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"I was never, 'Oh, I'm going to be a sexy superhero'. I was just playing a superhero. The only overtly sexy role I've ever done was 'Sin City'," she said.
