Isn't it a lovely answer to a relevant question? Many times, we're too hard on ourselves. Forgiving and giving yourself some time to heal and recover is usually the best way to love yourself and Ileana put it in the sweetest way possible.

Earlier, during an interview with mid-day during her film Baadshaaho's promotions, Ileana had spoken about Andrew. She had said, "It's not important for me (to tell the world if I'm married or not). I do tell the world about my equation in a way, and let the world a little bit into my life. But I like it that way because I hate the negativity that comes with it. I've learnt to live with it as it has been a little over 12 years for me in the industry now. But it's really not fair on the so many other people, the families involved."
