Denise Richards finds dating difficult - because she hates introducing new men to her young daughters.
The single Bond star is mum to two girls, Sam and Lola, by her ex-husband Charlie Sheen, and she recently added little Eloise to her brood after a two-year adoption process.
Richards admits motherhood is affecting potential romances - and coupled with constant press attention, the actress rarely heads out on dates.
She tells CNN's Piers Morgan, "I think dating in general is hard when you're in the public eye and when you have children - I don't bring a lot of different men around my children.
"It (press attention) makes dating difficult - if you're out in public with someone for dinner, the media are like, 'Who is the mystery man, who are you dating?' so it does get tricky, but it is what it is."
But the star already has an idea of what her ideal man will be like: "The qualities I look for now are different than prior to getting married and having kids. Now I find myself very attracted to men who have children and I think one of the sexiest qualities in a man is seeing a man great with kids. I have three now and it's a very attractive quality."
