"I'm 5'4" and change! I know I will never be like Gisele Bündchen, and I also know I will never be a hipless, assless supermodel," Paquin told Fashion Magazine.
The actress went on to speak about her red carpet wardrobe, saying she prefers to wear clothing she can move in.
"I'm not a ball gown kind of girl," Paquin explained. "I don't think the red carpet is my prom. I prefer edgier cuts and darker designs because they suit me."
She added: "I have to be able to sit, stand, walk properly and shake hands in an outfit without feeling confined. I've spent a lot of time figuring out what looks good for my body for fittings, and I've taken notes."
