Mena Suvari's love lessons
Oct 6, 2012, 8:01 GMT
Mena Suvari has 'learnt about love' since ending her second marriage.
The 'American Beauty' star - who split from second husband Simone Sestito earlier this year - claims her new relationship with tattoo artist Salvador Sanchez has taught her 'a lot about love' and she thinks she was 'superficial' in the past.
She said: 'The relationship I'm in now has actually taught me a lot about love.
'Thankfully, I now realise how superficial I might have previously made it in the past. I finally realise that it doesn't matter what someone looks like, it's more about their energy and their whole essence. I just feel really lucky that I can finally experience that.
'I think I needed to experience the things that happened in my life because I wouldn't be where I am, emotionally, without them.'
Mena spends most of her time in Los Angeles, but admits she does not feel too much pressure forcing her to maintain a Californian-style body.
She told Reveal magazine: 'In Los Angeles there's a lot of energy towards your appearance. It's something I'm aware of but I don't let it dictate my life. I take care of myself because I want to be healthy, but I don't want to live my life worrying what I look like all the time.'
