French actress Julie Delpy remains unimpressed with American men because they carry more emotional baggage than women.

The Before Sunset beauty, who left France for Los Angeles, rates her former lovers' bedroom performances highly, but she questions their mental stability and over-analytical approach to life.

Delpy, 35, says, "When it comes to having a relationship with American men, I must admit that I don't really get them. They can be very good lovers, but in their relationships they are often as neurotic as women, if not more so.

"They are continually questioning everything and are so old-fashioned it's unbelievable. They're full of puritan blockages, overly pragmatic and totally lacking in imagination."
