WILD THINGS star Matt Dillon believes in love at first sight, because it has happened to him "three or four times".

The romantic hunk, who fell for his THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY co-star Cameron Diaz in the 1990s, admits the myth of instant love may start as mere infatuation, but often transforms into the real thing.

He gushes, "I do think that you can meet someone and fall instantly in love with them, but I also think you can be infatuated, so maybe true love isn't something that happens right away.

"But that infatuation can happen instantly, and that can then grow into love, so yes, I believe in that."
