Julia Roberts has revealed she doesn't think people have ever thought of her as hot or seen her as a sex symbol.

The Oscar winner admitted that when she was younger she didn't make it onto many "hottest women" lists and was a bit miffed because she though she was prettier than stars like Halle Berry, who did make it into those polls.

She has been quoted as telling InStyle magazine: "I think I've always sort of been on the more boyish spectrum of girls.

"For example, I've never been chosen as 'one of the top-five hottest actresses in a bikini'."

Julia added: "And honestly, it's a godsend.

"When I was younger, I'd think, 'Oh, I'm the prettiest one. It's not Halle Berry. It's not!' But it is, you know?"

Julia, 46, also told the mag how she works harder these days when it comes to getting ready for showbiz events.

"It used to be a friend could call me at three in the afternoon and say, 'I have a premiere tonight. Will you come?' And I'd just take a shower and go," she said.

The mother of-three continued: "Those were the fun old days. People were less judgmental, less searing in their assessment of what you dare wear to the drugstore."
