‘I have ZERO love life!’ Jodie Comer, 26, insists men don’t approach her after her ‘psychopathic’ Killing Eve role… but admits she has plenty of ‘strange’ male fans
- The 26-year-old Liverpudlian actress revealed her romantic life is non-existent
- She won huge fame last year after starring as the assassin Villanelle in Killing Eve
- British actress did admit she gets plenty of attention from ‘strange’ male fans
- Last September, Jodie admitted: ‘I have a boyfriend in Liverpool. He isn’t in the industry so this is an interesting job for him to understand’
- But in March, sources claimed she ‘split from long-term boyfriend from home’
She’s garnered millions of fans with her portrayal of the seductive but disturbed assassin Villanelle in the hit show Killing Eve.
But Jodie Comer has insisted she has ‘zero’ love life and never gets approached because of the ‘psychopathic’ character she plays on-screen.
Despite her bad luck in the dating apartment, the 26-year-old British actress did admit she gets plenty of attention from ‘strange’ male fans.
No luck? On Saturday, Jodie Comer (pictured) insisted she has ‘zero’ love life and never gets approached due to her portrayal of ‘psychopathic’ Villenelle on the hit show Killing Eve … yet she admitted she has plenty of ‘strange’ fans
When asked about her dating life by The Australian on Saturday, Jodie said: ‘Oh, zero, darling, zero.’
She continued: ‘I don’t know if it’s particularly because I’ve played a psychopath. I don’t get approached at all. Which is fine – I’m never in one place long enough.’
This comes after she revealed in September last year that she had a boyfriend back at home in Liverpool before it was revealed that they split in March.
Comer did recall one instance when she had to catch a flight at 4am in the US that made her realise her fame has attracted a bizarrely dedicated following.

The Liverpudlian actress said she found ‘strange men’ – who had been following her throughout her week of press – waiting for her to sign autographs at the airport at two in the morning.
Over the past year, Jodie has won critical acclaim for her portrayal as merciless Villanelle in Killing Eve, who spent the last series being hunted by MI5 security officer Eve Polastri, played by Sandra Oh.
The much-anticipated second season of Killing Eve aired on BBC America in the US on April 7, and will air in the UK in June.

It was announced last month that the spy drama had been recommissioned for a third series.
Jodie recently revealed she is nothing like her murderous onscreen alter-ego, as she rarely nails her killer scenes first time due to being ‘very clumsy’.
Talking to The Daily Star, the actress, who famously climbed up a drainpipe at a Tuscan estate house in the show, said the scene had been a ‘proud moment’ due to being her first stunt.

She said: ‘When I climbed up the drainpipe. That’s what I just remembered. I did it. I did my own stunt. Yeah!
She added: ‘That was a proud moment – I can’t believe that I did it. I was like, “I’m so uncoordinated and very clumsy”, so there’s probably a million outtakes.
‘There was one where I had to just flip a knife out. Just flip the knife out and I was there for a good 10 minutes. So they’re really great at the editing.’
