Suki Waterhouse revealed a painful memory from her schooldays

Suki Waterhouse tonight confessed her teenage heartbreak caused when the prettiest girl in school stole her boyfriend.

The 22-year-old model - who is now dating Hollywood heartthrob Bradley Cooper - attended the premiere of her major movie debut Love, Rosie in London Leicester Square with co-stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin.

In the film Waterhouse plays model Bethany, the hottest girl in her year, who comes between heroine Rosie and the love of her life Alex.

Waterhouse revealed she had based her bitchy character on her own experience, admitting it still hurt years on.

Waterhouse revealed: "That's who I based it on. And she nicked my boyfriend as well. I actually really did base it on her.

"I haven't run into her for a long time. But it's so weird, even though it's been such a long time, those things from school still hold such a thing for you."

Romantic comedy Love, Rosie is based on the bestselling chick lit novel Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern.

The Mortal Instruments star Collins plays Rosie, whose whole life seems ahead of her until she accidentally gets pregnant from a one-night-stand on the night of her school leaver's ball and becomes a single working mother, while best friend Alex (Claflin) goes off to university and a new life in America.

Despite circumstances keeping them apart Alex and Rosie can not ignore their feelings for one another.

With Alex and Rosie clearly deeply in love, the film raises the old rom com adage, can men and women just be friends?

Collins, the daughter of musician Phil Collins, said: "I think it's totally possible. I have a lot of guy friends. I think Alex and Rosie's case is very specific. It's not the norm that a friendship that started at four will end in marriage, but it does for them and I think that's amazing. So beautiful."

The Hunger Games star Claflin agreed: "The answer is quite simply - yes of course they can. And if they couldn't we would never speak to someone of the opposite sex, fearful that we might lose them as a friend. I know so many friends who have friends of the opposite sex, me included. They're like sisters to me."

Love, Rosie, directed by Christian Ditton and also starring Tamsin Egerton and Christian Cooke, is released in cinemas on Wednesday October 22.
