Liv Tyler has revealed her mother was fiercely protective when she was younger and warned her to be careful of men's intentions.
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."
