Sexy actress and vegetarian Olivia Wilde tried her best to make Quorra, the character she plays in Tron Legacy, not sexy.

She explains:

"I thought it'd be much more interesting if she was sexy despite herself. She's a warrior, so she's very athletic, but she has no desire to seduce.

Very early on I called [director Joseph Kosinski] and said, ‘I know who Quorra is. She's Joan of Arc.' We agreed that she was Joan of Arc because she was this unlikely warrior, this child who led an army, who had this very rare combination of strength and innocence."

After I discovered the Joan of Arc connection I asked if she could be kind of androgynous. I kept saying, ‘The Sirens are so sexy! You don't need any more really sexy girls! So…maybe she could just look like a boy!'"

We're not sure how successful Olivia was at desexifying Quorra. She's like a sci-fi geek's dream come true!
