Actress Kate Beckinsale isn't sure she likes the idea of starring in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation - because all the sex seems like hard work to her.

The British actress has emerged as one of the fan favorites to play Anastasia Steele in the racy big screen version of E.L. James' hit erotic novel, but she's not sure she wants the job.

She tells, "I haven't read it... but the whole idea of that sounds very exhausting to me."

Should she land the raunchy role, Beckinsale will be employing the same simple hygiene tactics she uses on the red carpet at big premieres and events.

The beautiful Brit adds, "Make sure you have deodorant on."
