Elizabeth Debicki would date a short guy

Elizabeth Debicki is open to dating short men.

The 25-year-old actress, who is more than six-ft tall, has revealed she would happily date someone who is shorter than herself, but her main ambition is to find someone with whom she can enjoy some intelligent conversation with.

The blonde beauty shared: "I've dated shorter men and it's not been a problem, but what I'm really looking for is a normal, honest, real person. I like intelligence.

"I think it's the most attractive thing in a human being and when you meet someone you can have an intelligent conversation with, well, that's what life's all about really. And obviously, a well-cut suit is great too."

Meanwhile, Elizabeth recently starred alongside Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston in the widely acclaimed TV series 'The Night Manager', and she relished playing the role of Jed Marshall, who is Hugh's on-screen love interest.

Elizabeth admitted she simply could not refuse to star in the show.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper: "There aren't as many complex roles for women as there are for men.

"There's a kind of fantasy that exists regarding women in the spy genre - the woman on the arm - it's not particularly layered and very image-based. They're often beautiful and that's about all. That's not someone I wanted to play. So to make that series with Tom and Hugh - well, it doesn't get better than that."

Elizabeth - who also starred in 'The Great Gatsby' in 2013 - said she has always been inspired by strong, complicated actresses.

She revealed: "I loved Catherine Deneuve, Sophia Loren and Ursula Andress. They had an incredible strength but fragility at the same time, especially Catherine Deneuve, who had an aloofness that impressed me."
