LOS ANGELES, May 4 (UPI) -- Actress Jessica Biel says since she has become famous, she cannot go anywhere without being recognized.

"I can't even go to the dry cleaner by myself anymore," Biel says in an Elle magazine interview. "You're seen in public with anybody that you might not even know and you're speculated about. It makes everything hard because you can't even go to pick up a prescription without somebody trying to snap a photo of what you have in your Long Drugs bag. Thank goodness I'm a nice person."

Biel been named the "Sexiest Woman Alive" by Esquire magazine, which she said may have hurt her career.

"I thought the Esquire cover was going to be really positive for my career. But it wasn't, really. (One director told me) 'I'm not looking for the sexiest woman; I'm looking for the girl next door.'"
