Dominic Cooper gets chased down the street by "middle-aged women".

The 'Mamma Mia!' actor says he has been bombarded with female attention since starring in the 2008 Abba-inspired musical movie and says he still can't escape his adoring fans.

He said: "I get middle-aged women chasing me down the street. It's definitely due to 'Mamma Mia!'. I was blissfully unaware of how the business worked. Once people recognise you, it changes your position in terms of the people you meet and the opportunities you then have for more work. The whole thing was a delightful experience."

However, Dominic - who is dating his 'Mamma Mia!' co-star Amanda Seyfried - says it won't stop him from living a normal life.

He said: "I think it's important to live in the real world. I remember the playwright Alan Bennett saying, 'As a writer you must stay about the people you write about.' As an actor, you can't not travel on the underground."
