Distracted romantic Alex Pettyfer

Alex Pettyfer can think of five occasions where he didn't watch the film on a movie date.

The 23-year-old is currently single but in the past has enjoyed relationships with Glee's Dianna Agron and Elvis Presley's granddaughter Riley Keough.

One of his favourite pastimes is movie dates, but it's not so much about the film for the Magic Mike actor.

"I really like the traditional movie-and-dinner date," he revealed to the UK edition of Cosmopolitan.

"There are all those excited new feelings when you're in the cinema - you're looking at each other but trying not to... I can think of about five dates when I couldn't even tell you what we were watching."

Alex is a romantic at heart and says one of his best Valentine's Days was spent at Disneyland with his girlfriend at the time.

He also once caught a plane to Los Angeles to surprise a special someone, despite suffering from a fear of flying.

Despite not having found The One yet, the handsome actor is keen to settle down.

"I've always wanted to be a young dad," he smiled.

"I'm glad I left school at 15 and started acting. Had I stayed at school, I'd only just have finished university and started working. I wouldn't have much financial stability, so I'd probably end up having kids later, whereas I can see myself doing so maybe at 29 or 30."

Alex isn't sure if he's a good kisser and when quizzed by the magazine suggested he'd probably receive mixed reviews.

He might seem like a guy at ease with himself, but the star worries about getting hurt when in love.

"The hardest thing about love is to be vulnerable," he confessed.

"A lot of people don't want to risk making themselves vulnerable then something going wrong. But it's part of falling in love, and even though it's hard it's definitely worth it."
