British actress Rosamund Pike is embracing life as a single woman, because she is no longer scared of a broken heart after director JOE WRIGHT called off their engagement last year (09).
The couple, together for four years, became engaged in 2008 and planned to wed last summer (09) - but the Atonement director dumped his partner just weeks before they were due to walk down the aisle.
Pike was left devastated and confused by the sudden break-up - but she is now making the most of being free and single.
She tells Britain's You magazine, "Being single has propelled me into some amazing adventures. After what happened, I have nothing to lose any more; I'm not scared of being heartbroken, because love is always going to take you somewhere new and frightening and wonderful.
"When you spend time in a couple, that starts to define you and, while it was fun, I've also discovered that it's fun being me. I might meet someone tomorrow or in two years and that's fine. Meanwhile, I get to live out the most glorious love affairs on screen. How fabulous is that?"
