She told Grazia Italia: ''There are so many wonderful women out there, and they aren't even actresses!

''I don't like being labelled as 'the sexiest woman alive.' As an actress I prefer to maintain the anonymity.''

'The Avengers' star was previously married to Ryan Reynolds and has also been romantically linked to actor Sean Penn and is believed to be dating advertising executive Nate Naylor, but she is keen to keep her personal life private.

She added: ''I don't talk about my private relationships anymore. I often read many things and don't even recognise myself in what was written.''

Scarlett has previously said she hopes that now she is getting older people will begin to think of her beyond her beauty.

She said: ''I never wanted to be a sex symbol. I wanted to be a character actor. Those are the actors I often mostly admire.

''But I think women that are curvy can be pigeonholed in that bombshell thing.

''I never think of my characters that way. What can you do about it?

''As I get older, I think I'm seeing more multifaceted roles. I'm past the ingénue phase, which I'm very thankful for but I'm happy it's over.''
