Amanda Seyfried thought her boyfriend Dominic Cooper was gay when she met him.
The blonde actress, who has been dating her 'Mamma Mia!' co-star for over a year, initially believed the British hunk wouldn't be interested in her because of his fashion sense.
She said: "It so wasn't instant love. I thought he was gay. I didn't know many Englishmen and it was just the way he dressed - he is quite fashionable.
"Dominic and I split off towards the end of filming a little bit, but it was never anything that was real. It takes time. Life is complicated."
The US-born actress is now convinced British men are sexier than their American counterparts.
She said: "I am going to say something very cliched, but the accent is sexier in Britain. And British men dress so well and have really good manners. Charm is another thing they have - they're good at putting you at ease. You feel like an equal, or at least comfortable.
"Dominic is very charming. That makes it easy for someone to want to be around him."
Amanda is smitten with the 31-year-old actor and is looking forward to starting a family with him soon.
The 23-year-old star added to Britain's InStyle magazine: "I want kids. You don't necessarily need to be married for that. I would love for my parents to have grandchildren and to have a good father for my kids. I want to be with the father of my children."
