Theo James: Bad breath turns me off

Theo James has shared his biggest turn-ons and turn-offs.

The Divergent series, in which he dates Shailene Woodley's character, has made him a hit with girls all over the world.

Unfortunately actress Ruth Kearney took him off the market in 2009, but the 30-year-old was still happy to discuss his dating likes and dislikes.

"Bad breath!" he shuddered to German magazine Joy when asked what turns him off most. "And when she's too self-obsessed. She should definitely be a good listener and show empathy."

Shailene, 23, shares a hot and steamy scene with Theo in latest film Insurgent. And in the vein of love and romance, Theo shared his favourite traits in a woman.

"Let's see... I have a thing for pretty legs," he mused.

"But most importantly, I like confident women. It's probably because I grew up with four strong women - my mother, grandmother and two sisters."

One of the themes in Insurgent is being brave and facing your fears. This led Theo to reflect on the things that most concern him.

"I worry that when I'm swimming, I'll suddenly get attacked by a shark!" he shared. "And I worry about embarrassing moments during sex."

But it doesn't look like Theo has too much to fret about - he's still a hit with the ladies.

"I've had some strange notes from fans and a few weird gifts. I can't tell you what they gave me - you won't be able to print it," he previously laughed to the British edition of Marie Claire.
