Liv Tyler's mother warned her to be wary of men from a young age.

The actress - the daughter of Aerosmith rocker Steven Tyler and model Bebe Buell - insists her mum was never anti-men but wanted her daughter to be cautious because of her own reputation of being a "rock groupie".

Liv said: "My mom taught me to watch out for men. Be careful when they tell you things. She was never a man basher. She just wanted me to be aware of what may be said and done.

"My mom had a reputation which was simply untrue. She was often described as a rock groupie but in fact she is a very moral person who is in love with music."

However, despite her mother's advice on the intentions of men, Liv admitted she is still a romantic at hear.

She said: "I'm a sucker for romance. Flowers and champagne or dinner being cooked for me."

The 33-year-old star - who has a six-year-old son Milo with ex-husband ROYSTON LANGDON - also admitted she has never been interesting in partying and would rather spend her money on her home.

She explained to The Sun newspaper: "My mom was my manager for a time and was very careful about who I went with and who I met. I'm an old fashioned woman, I didn't go to parties and get off with men. I spent my money on furniture rather than on nights out."
