Jaime Winstone says "true love can conquer all" and that thought convinced her to appear in new film 'Love, Rosie'
Jaime Winstone accepted a role in 'Love, Rosie' because she believes "true love can conquer all".
The actress, whose father is Hollywood star Ray Winstone, appears in the new romantic-comedy alongside Lily Collins, and she says that although she's not typically a fan of the genre, she couldn't pass up the opportunity to appear in the film.
The 29 year old explained to the Mail on Sunday newspaper: "I'm not usually a fan of romantic comedies. But when I read the script for 'Love, Rosie' I fell in love with it straight away.
"It was one of those moments when you instantly think, 'I'm attached to this story'. I've never met author Cecilia [Ahern], but I would love to, because her book really touched my heart. I do believe in the film's message: that there is one person - or soul mate - for everyone and that true love can conquer all. I hope so anyway! I've had plenty of experiences of toying with love, so who knows?"
For this reason, Jaime says she would never turn to online dating as she considers it to be unromantic.
She said: "For me, it goes against the grain of meeting someone in a natural way and having real chemistry. I love how romance is so complicated but also so clear: as is the case with Rosie and Alex in the film."
