Stunning actress Joely Richardson is so traumatised by her divorce from movie producer Tim Bevan, she has refused to marry again.

The star of popular American TV drama NIP/TUCK insists that marriage dooms a relationship - after separating from Bevan seven years ago - and is terrified of legally committing herself to anyone in the future.

Richardson confesses, "I love weddings but it seems that the couples I know who aren't married stay happier because they never take each other for granted. I would feel scared to sign on the dotted line again."
