Actress Sienna Miller has joked about her own troubled love life at the launch of her new film Casanova at the Venice Film Festival.
Sienna Miller plays the object of Casanova's desires
The 23-year-old appears with rising Australian star Heath Ledger, 26, who plays the fabled serial womaniser.
Miller found herself in the tabloid spotlight after her ex-fiance Jude Law admitted an affair with his nanny.
"I've met a few Casanovas that I've liked, and a few that I haven't - and I hope to meet some more," she said.
Miller broke off their engagement after news of Law's affair broke, and appeared at the Venice press conference without her engagement ring.
However, at Saturday evening's premiere, she refused to talk to reporters about her relationship with Law.
In director Lasse Hallstrom's film, Ledger's Casanova falls for a woman who spurns him, played by Miller, whose last role was in 1960s remake Alfie.
Ledger has already won plaudits at Venice for his role as as a cowboy trying to come to terms with his homosexuality in Ang Lee's Brokeback Mountain, which is appearing in competition at Venice.
He told the press Casanova was a "working holiday" in comparison with Brokeback Mountain.
Hallstrom, whose film credits include Chocolat and The Cider House Rules, said he aimed to make his Casanova a lighter film than its predecessors.
"Obviously, this is a romp, this is a comedy. We've taken a lot of liberties but we've tried to stay true to the atmosphere of Venice at the time," he said.
"Casanova had a true understanding of women. He could get into the minds of women and see to their needs. That's what we've kept in the film."
The movie, which is screening out of competition, is due out in the US at Christmas, and the UK in February.
Hallstrom was given access to some of the city's most famous sites, including St Mark's Square and the Doges' Palace.
"We were allowed into places that nobody has ever been allowed to shoot before," Hallstrom said.
"It was like shooting a movie inside a museum," Ledger added.
The real Casanova, who boasted relationships with more than 100 women in his memoirs, was the son of actors and rubbed shoulders with luminaries such as Russia's Catherine the Great and French philosopher Voltaire.
But plagued by venereal disease from an early age, Casanova died in exile, having fled Venice's Piombi prison.
