In a recent interview with Yahoo, Denise Richards said that she doesn't see herself as a "sex symbol" despite her fans using the term almost synonymously with her name. Richards said "I don't think I realized what the magnitude of that was. I'd walk by seeing myself on magazine covers and stuff and like, 'Oh, that's not me. I'm in, like, my jeans, a T-shirt, at the grocery store.' I see myself that way." Many fans have given Richards the Sex Symbol title for her roles in movies like Wild Things and James Bond, but Denise feels that it's not a woman's body that makes them sexy, rather its "confidence" that truly brings outa. woman's sexiness. "Anyone that exudes confidence is, to me, so sexy. Beauty really, truly is from within."
