NIP/TUCK star Joely Richardson has been inundated with marriage proposals since divorcing The Interpreter producer Tim Bevan in 1998.

The statuesque actress split from actor JOHN HENSLEY - who played her son in the plastic-surgery drama - and is now enjoying her independence.

She says, "People have asked me to marry them since (the split) but I haven't felt ready. Because the independence I achieved was so hard won, I've been reluctant to give it away."
