Olga Kurylenko thinks she will be single her "whole life".

The 29-year-old actress - who has been married twice - claims she is so focused on her career, she doesn't want to have to consider other people when making decisions and is happy to live her life alone.

She said: "I think I'll be single my whole life. It's entirely possible I'm going to end up alone. Because I don't want to make any sacrifices for my own development and achieving what I want to achieve and I don't want a family to get in the way of that.

"I feel I'm not ready for that and I don't know if I ever will be. Having people I love around me - friends and family - is great but I don't necessarily need a relationship. And it's not just about my career; I just don't feel like settling down."

The 'Centurion' actress also admitted she feels she has "lived her life backwards" as she has now reached the age where many women want to settle down and marry, but she has already been through that phase in her life.

She explained to Live magazine: "I've lived my life backwards.

"I was married twice and I did it early. Some people my age might say, 'OK, now's the time to settle down and get married.' But not me.

"I've done it before, and I wanted it and I had fun and I loved it. But I've done it and I know what it is. I was settled my whole life from when I was 20 years old and I've always been in relationships.

"But now I'm not and I'm keeping it open."

The Ukrainian beauty was married to French fashion photographer Cedric van Mol for four years until 2004 and mobile phone accessory entrepreneur Damian Gabrielle from 2006 to late 2007.
