Felicity Jones has insisted she isn't phased by her new-found Hollywood success.

The 27-year-old has attracted attention for her starring role opposite Anton Yelchin in Like Crazy, a small-budget relationship drama about long-distance love.

Both the film and Felicity won awards at the Sundance Film Festival, and she was honoured with a New Hollywood prize at the Hollywood Film Awards earlier this week.

But the British actress said she was refusing to let industry hype go to her head.

"I'm just enjoying it, it's definitely a good thing and I just hope that I will be able to play interesting roles and have a long career," she said.

Felicity will reunite with Like Crazy director Drake Doremus in his next, as yet-untitled project, and appears alongside Maggie Gyllenhaal and Hugh Dancy in Hysteria, set in Victorian England.

"It's just a really fun script, and it's about the invention of the vibrator, which many people would not know was invented by a British man," she laughed.
