can be "sexually attracted" to women.
The Knight and Day
actress -- who has previously dated Justin Timberlake
and John Mayer
and has most recently been romantically linked to baseball star Alex Rodriguez
-- believes sexuality is difficult to define, and thinks it is massively different to love.
She said: "Sexuality and love can be different things. I can be attracted to a woman sexually, but it doesn't mean I want to be in love with a woman. If I'm going to be with a woman sexually, it doesn't mean I'm a lesbian. We put these restraints and definitions on people, but it's hard to define."
The blonde beauty also quashed speculation she is in a relationship with sportsman Alex, insisting she is currently happy to be single for the first time in her life.
She added in an interview with Playboy
magazine: "No, no, no. I've been in relationships since I was 16 years old. In the past three years I've made a conscious decision not to be in a relationship for as long as I want. I've stayed away from all the traps out there for me to just fall into something that will potentially lead me down the same road... I want to have a relationship with myself right now."
However, the 37-year-old star admitted she is open to being asked out by anyone but thinks men are intimidated by her.
She said: "I never shut down any man who's willing to ask me out unless he's a total douche bag. It takes a lot for a guy to ask out a girl like me -- not because I think I'm super-special or anything. It's just that I think men are intimidated, and it's a lot to get involved with. It's not uncomplicated."
