Ioan disappointed in Paris and Britney
Given the power such celebrities have over the minds of impressionable young people, the Fantastic Four star has said that they should shake off their sexual image.
Contactmusic.com quotes the actor as saying: "I look at girls like Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and think, they have a responsibility to be role models to their young fans, but, instead, it's all just about sex and selling their bodies.
"I think it's tarty. Personally, I enjoy the elegance and mystery of a woman."
Gruffudd can be seen in Fantastic Four from July 22.
