Supermodel Irina Shayk has revealed she's only offered roles as 'strippers' in her budding film career.
The Sports Illustrated covergirl is one of the world's most in demand models and is turning her talents to acting.
But the girlfriend of Cristiano Ronaldo is determined to be seen as more than eye candy, despite the fact that she is posing topless on the cover of the latest issue of Maxim.
She posed for the men's magazine to promote her new role in the live-action flick Hercules, alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson.
"Every time I get a script, it’s, like, bartender…stripper… And I don’t think I would make a bad bartender or stripper, you know," she told Maxim.
And the Russian model, who is one of the fashion industry's highest earners, said she loves having financial independence.
"'For me, it’s business, not a hobby, like, "Oh, I got $20,000 and I’m going to spend it on shoes!" What’s the part I enjoy the most? The financial part. The independence."
She also praised actress Sofia Vergara for her stunning looks.
"She's so beautiful, and she's funny, and she's super, super sexy, too!" she said.
