The Mummy actress Rachel Weisz knows what she wants from a boyfriend - she's attracted to men with a "sense of purpose".

The sexy British star is currently living with cult director DARREN ARONOFSKY, having previously dated OSCAR-winning filmmaker Sam Mendes, now wed to Kate Winslet.

She says, "I'm definitely drawn to people who have a strong sense of direction - a purpose."

And her relocation from London to New York to live with Aronofsky has helped her ditch her reticent English ways and embrace Americans' more direct approach to life.

She explains, "In England it can be embarrassing to be ambitious. (In New York) I've had to learn to be more direct and say what I want. You can't go winding around."
