Acting legend Al Pacino's former lover Diana Becirovic has claimed that she dumped the actor because she found his "intense" personality tiresome.

The Serbian model dated Pacino during the making of 'The Godfather' in 1972. Pacino, now 72, played mobster Michael Corleone in the Francis Ford Coppolla directed film in his early 30s, the Daily Mail reported. "He was always so tense and paranoid," Becirovic told a Serbian newspaper.

"I always thought my role was to make a man feel like a man and his role should be to make me feel like a woman. But I never felt that way with Al. It was boring," she said. The former Playboy model says she decided to break the relationship with the Oscar-winner because of his dominating personality.

"He started to give me orders and I didn't want to listen to that. For example, if we were out he used to say, 'Let's go straight home'. And I'd say, 'You can go by yourself if you want'.

"It's a pity. Many fans see him like the Godfather, strong and heroic. But I saw him as tense and worried all the time because of his strong ego," she said.
