Los Angeles - Bono's daughter doesn't want to become a "celebrity kid cliché".

Eve Hewson - whose father is the U2 rocker - has insisted to Town & Country magazine she doesn't want to be known for her family connection but rather for her acting talent.

She said: "There's the cliché of the celebrity kid with a fragrance and a handbag line and they design jewellery on the side and maybe dabble in acting.

"I've always been very particular about the fact that [acting] is the one thing I want to do."

Despite wanting to distance her career from her father's, the 24-year-old actress loved dancing to his music as a young girl.

She shared: "[There was] music all around and writers walking in and out.

"I was constantly dancing in front of the TV and pissing everyone off. [They'd say,] 'Stop dancing, Eve!'"

And although Eve is sure about her career, she takes a similar approach to her love life, insisting it's "so much fun" being single.

She added: "My sister says, 'You need to look more available... You're so confident in yourself, you look like you have a boyfriend.'

"I'm [24], I don't need a boyfriend. It's so much fun being on your own."
