Los Angeles, March 29 (IANS) Actress Eva Mendes says her character in a movie was dubbed by someone else because her voice did not sound intelligent.

The 39-year-old played a small role of Trish in 2001 action movie "Exit Wounds" starring Steven Seagal and was surprised to see how her character did not sound like her at all, reports contactmusic.com.

"It was a terrible film but I had a small part in it and I went in (to a screening) and I thought something was off when I came onto the screen, I sounded weird... and they dubbed my voice. And it wasn't in a foreign language, it was an English film in English," Mendes said.

"I was told... when I enquired after that I didn't sound intelligent enough... They replaced me with someone with a very high-pitched (voice) - and it was a Steven Seagal movie," she added.
