Daisy Lowe finds it funny when people have the wrong perception about her.

The British beauty may be the offspring of former singer Pearl Lowe and Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, but that doesn't mean she's had help on her way to the top.

She's an accomplished model in her own right, but admits people often get the wrong idea about her.

"It's funny the amount of people I've met who are surprised by my personality," Daisy told Britain's The Metro newspaper. "They expect me to be entitled. Or that I don't work - I hate that!"

As well as modelling, Daisy is also trying her hand at acting. She's followed in the footsteps of the likes of Cara Delevingne, Suki Waterhouse and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley by courting a Hollywood career, and admits acting is currently keeping her smiling.

"I'm the happiest bunny (on set) hopping around everywhere," she confessed.

She's even managed to bag a part in Cara's new film Tulip Fever, which also stars Christoph Waltz, Jack O'Connell and Alicia Vikander.

"(Cara's) brilliant and fearless," Daisy smiled. "I've done a film with her called Tulip Fever. I literally have three lines - depending on if they cut me out! - but I'm still a named actress."

While her famous last name may open doors for Daisy, it doesn't always work in her favour.

"(My name) can be a massive hindrance because you really have to prove yourself," she sighed.

Daisy has previously been labelled an It Girl by the media, but it's a title she hates. The 26-year-old is determined to win everyone over with her hardworking mentality, and banish the label forever.

"(I want to be known as a model). It's just... the idea of an It Girl. Either it can be seen in a Parisian way, which is very complimentary, like a Jane Birkin or a Brigitte Bardot, or it can be seen in a very British way, which is, 'You don't work hard for your money - you just get paid to go to parties.' I work really hard," Daisy previously said to the Britain's InStyle magazine.
