Actor BEN STILLER is convinced his film success isn't down to his talent or looks - he's just been lucky.
The comic star reckons he's in demand only because THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY was so successful and not because he's talented. The funnyman says, "Show business is great, but when you're in a movie that made more than $120 million (£80 million), the perspective changes. I'd never had the experience of being in a movie that so many people found funny. "After the enormous success of Mary, I was able to command much more money and I got recognised more. But the reason for all this is only because the movie made money, not because I'm any more talented or better looking."
