“It’s philosophically helpful and uplifting to remember that romantic love is a myth and quite dangerous,” she said, according to The Daily Mail.

“Long-term relationships are hugely difficult and complicated,” the actress added. “If anyone thinks that happy ever after has a place in our lives, forget it.”
