Léa Seydoux: Frenchmen are too feminine

Bond girl Léa Seydoux looks for a mix of sensitivity and strength in a man.

Actress Léa Seydoux often finds Frenchmen too "feminine".

The Spectre star is currently dating someone, although she won't reveal anything besides the fact that he's "not famous". While she prefers to keep quiet about her love life, the 30-year-old beauty is happy to address the kind of person she's attracted to.

"Frenchmen are a bit feminine for me - which I do realise is a generalisation," she admitted according to Germany's Glamour magazine. "Americans tend to be a bit tougher. I like a mix of both. A man should definitely be sensitive and able to show his feelings, as long as he doesn't come across as too androgynous, because I am also looking for strength."

Léa also opened up about her girl crush, picking novel Gone with the Wind's fictional Scarlett O'Hara. In 2013 the star appeared in Blue Is the Warmest Colour, a French film about an intense lesbian relationship. It featured explicit sex scenes, which did give the actress pause for thought.

“Of course I did (question my sexuality)," she told Britain's ES Magazine. "Me as a person, as a human being... It’s not nothing, making those scenes. Of course I question myself. But I did not have any revelations.”

For now at least, Léa seems completely smitten with her mystery man. ''He isn't an actor or famous, he is very good at philosophy and I'm in love, I think," she smiled to Loaded magazine.

''I believe you can find someone that can become your ally for life and you can find someone that is like your partner in a way. I believe in the team... I'm ambitious for my love life, and I'm an optimist. I'd love to experience a beautiful love story.''

Léa added that she hopes to have a family one day.
