The 26-year-old actress, who has dated lots of hunky men, including Bruce Willis, Christian Slater, Colin Farrell and Jared Leto, laments the fact that she still hasn’t found “The One.”
“I can only imagine what it would be like to have the kind of love that she and Richard Burton had. It’s such a wonderful thing. It’s so heartbreaking. Love is scary and I’m yet to find that one person,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
“I relate to the fact that Elizabeth Taylor once said, ‘I love being in love.’ I do, too. I love being in love. There’s nothing better than that first feeling of being in love, so I look forward to having that at some point. “Yes, I’ve been in love with people – maybe one or two – but I haven’t really had a true love yet,” she said.
Liz and Dick marks her comeback in front of the cameras after a rocky two years during which she spent three months in rehab at the Betty Ford Center under a court order and was charged with theft of a necklace and probation violation.
She was placed under house arrest wearing a tracking ankle monitor and was later found to have broken the terms of her probation by failing to perform community service.
She was sentenced to 30 days in jail but spent less than five hours there because of overcrowding. She is still on informal probation. But, she says, she is trying hard to lose the “bad girl” image that has dogged her for so long and she is now concentrating on work.
“I fought to get the role in Liz and Dick because I related to her so much because of her position in the public eye and the media obsession with her, and the ups and downs in her relationships and life. And that’s aside from her love for diamonds!” she said.
“We’re both strong-willed and Elizabeth and her mother had a similar bond to the one I have with my mother. “I learned from Liz that it’s OK to be in love and have heartache. She and Burton loved each other so much it was scary,” she added.
