WILD THINGS star Matt Dillon is desperate to find the right woman to spend the rest of his life with, despite his longstanding reputation as a sex-mad lothario.

The romantic hunk, who dated Cameron Diaz for three years in the late 1990s, is mortified by the fact his huge number of female friends tends to put potential life partners off, as he insists he is looking for commitment.

He says, "I'm not interested in one-night-stands. I like to date women - I enjoy having a girlfriend.

"I have a lot of female friends also which gets misinterpreted. What I like best is falling in love with someone special and having a committed, long-term relationship, but that doesn't seem to be happening right now."
