Melanie Griffith doesn't want to rush back into dating.

The 57-year-old actress - who split from Antonio Banderas in June after eight years of marriage - has revealed she is ''laying low'' but knows what kind of man she would be looking for.

When asked if she'd like to meet new people, she told television show, 'Extra': ''I'm just kind of laying low.

''I think I'd like to meet a cowboy, like a real [man's] man. Somebody who's a man and is not concerned with this town.''

Melanie - who has 18-year-old Stella Banderas with her ex-husband - also has two children from previous marriages: Alexander Bauer and Dakota Johnson and has revealed that she won't be going to see her daughter star in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

The 'Crazy in Alabama' star explained: ''It would just be too awkward. I think [Dakota] would be mortified if we came to see her movie. She said, 'You can see up 'til I lose my virginity and that's it.''

Meanwhile, Melanie has revealed that her daughter was always keen to follow in her footsteps and become an actress.

Speaking of Dakota's childhood, she said: ''She hated school. Around 11th grade, she was like, 'I'm going to be an actress. I'm going to be really big. I'm going to be bigger than you,' and she is... there is no lack of confidence with Dakota.''
