Actress plays down her stunning good looks

Most women would be thrilled to look as sensational as Patsy Kensit. But the actress herself thinks she’s firmly lacking in sex appeal.

When asked what mark she’d give herself out of 10, the modest former Emmerdale star plumped for a very modest zero.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror she says: ‘If I look young it’s because it’s dark in here. I don’t feel sexy.’

Fortunately the 38-year-old is happy with her size eight figure.

‘I don’t feel under any pressure to diet and I’m the right size for my height,’ she explains.

‘Personally I’d rather be on the heavier side than skinny. I don’t think I’d be attractive as a size zero. Why would I want to look like a bag of bones?’
