Perhaps best known these days as Charlotte’s braless, Irish nanny in Sex and the City 2, actress Alice Eve wants to be known as more than just a Hollywood pin-up.

Born in London to actor parents, Alice moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was three and lived there for the better part of ten years. She claims that her love of acting is a gift from her parents saying: “It is in my genes. It’s definitely nature over nurture.” She studied drama at the Beverly Hill Playhouse in California, before attending Oxford. As a student, she appeared in numerous plays including An Ideal Husband, Animal Crackers and The Colour of Justice.

Her first onscreen appearance was in 2004′s Stage Beauty, a historical drama with Billy Crudup and Claire Danes, followed up with roles on BBC dramas The Rotter’s Club and Poirot. Alice also starred in the Tom Hanks-produced film Starter for 10 and the UK heist flick Big Nothing — costarring Simon Pegg and David Schwimmer . Struggling to find commercial success, Alice travelled to India to shoot the UK miniseries Losing Gemma, another project that failed to establish her status as a celebrity. She encountered more disappointment in 2009 when her American film debut Crossing Over, starring Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd and Jim Sturgess tanked at the box office.

This summer, Alice is hoping to change her luck and secure her spot as a sought after Hollywood actress. She landed a juicy role in Sex and the City 2, as Charlotte’s braless nanny, which opened last week. She will also star in the R-rated comedy She’s Out of My League opposite every-man Jay Baruchel. In it, she stars as Molly, the perfect “10″ who is romanced by a geek airport attendant.

Although the marketing campaign would suggest otherwise, Alice is proud to say that her character in She’s Out of My League has more than physical beauty. She says that it’s her personality and brains that make her a “Perfect 10.” “[Molly] has the money, she has the prerogative, she’s got the incentive and she gets what she wants, or at least goes after it. That was really refreshing, because often you read a female role and she’s a bitch, or she’s got some sort of twist in her story line that’s like a reveal, or she’s stupid. This girl was pretty together.”

We’re positive that Alice’s intelligence plays a big role in her real life romances. She is currently dating poet Adam O’Riordan, whom she met when they were both undergraduates at Oxford University.

She’s Out of My League opens on 4th June.
