Welsh actor Rhys Ifans used music to mend his broken heart following his split from Sienna Miller - by founding a new rock band.
The Notting Hill star was devastated when Miller ended their year-long relationship in 2008, and he returned to his native Wales to recover.
And the former Super Furry Animals musician bounced back from the break-up by throwing himself into music with new band The Peth.
Ifans tells Britain's The Times, "To come home and be with the people I love most in the world is better than lying on any couch. I highly recommend if an A-list superstar dumps you, just join a rock 'n' roll band."
But Ifans admits he's baffled by his resulting reputation as a womaniser after his romance with Miller - insisting he's a loser when it comes to being a Lothario.
He adds, "Even though I've had my moments of drink and drugs excess that have gone on for far too long, when I gave the Lothario bit a little run, it was hopeless. You spend all night getting to like this girl, and then you're supposed to move on, avoid her and her calls. I just couldn't do it. I'm too soft."
