Ben Barnes, the British star of upcoming film Prince Caspian, hopes that his burgeoning movie career will kick start his love life.
"I'm single right now and I have a movie out," he told reporters outside the MTV Movie Awards. "I don't know if that will help."
The actor, who stars in the second instalment of the Chronicles of Narnia series says he is looking for a "normal" girl to date.
"Somebody who's fun and normal," he said. "There's a lot of fun people round here [Hollywood] but not so many normal ones."
Prince Caspian has already been released in the US, but Ben hasn't been besieged by fans as yet.
"I haven't really been here," he confessed. "I've been off in Japan and Taiwan and Australia. There's still a couple of weeks until it come out in England."
Ben was attending the awards to support the Narnia film, which was nominated for Best Summer Movie so far, but he wasn't too confident about its chances.
"It's in the biggest category with Indiana Jones and Iron Man," he said.
