It's hard to imagine Rachel McAdams
has ever worried about falling in love. But the actress – currently dating
actor Michael Sheen – admits it isn't easy to come by.
"You have those days when you wonder if you're going to find it for yourself," she says in the June issue of Elle
. "It's such a hard thing to find."
McAdams, 32, who was formerly in a long-term relationship
with Ryan Gosling
, hopes to end up with a fairy-tale romance like her parents.
"[They are] still together and still in love," she says. "I'm very blessed that way. I had a great example of love in front of me, and that's probably what makes me such a romantic, because I've seen it firsthand."
Although McAdams hopes to wed someday, it isn't happening right away. Although she recently sported a ring on her wedding finger, a rep for Sheen, 42, says the pair aren't engaged.
