Noomi Rapace still loves her ex-husband.

The 32-year-old actress and Ola Rapace - who have nine-year-old son Lev together - separated in September 2010 and despite claims their 10-year marriage ended in animosity, the 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' star insists they still get on well.

She told The Telegraph Magazine: ''The Swedish press was really nasty about it, and has written a lot of things that aren't true. There was no war.

''We're still close, and I love him. But we're both quite intense, and it could be quite explosive. We were fighting a lot, and it just felt like it was best to change things. So we did. And we're both happier today.''

Noomi was just 20 when she and Ola, who is now 40, tied the knot and she admits her family thought she was ''crazy'' to marry so young.

She said: ''Everyone said, 'What, are you crazy?' ''

The 'Prometheus' actress has previously admitted she was rebellious when she was younger and left school when she was just 15 years old.

She has said: ''When I was 14, I had piercings, I dyed my hair blonde, I looked terrible. I just wanted to get drunk every day.''
