FRIDA star Salma Hayek is enjoying life as a singleton because it's the first time she's been without a man in 10 years.

The Mexican beauty, who dated Edward Norton before embarking on a romance with Josh Lucas, admits she's getting to know herself much better now she has no romantic ties.

She says, "I was in a four-year relationship, then went into another four-year relationship. Then I dated someone for a year.

"I'm single now for the first time in a decade, and it's wonderful to find out who I am when I'm not someone's girlfriend."
