Hopelessly romantic Bana

LONDON: The Time Traveler’s Wife actor Eric Bana found it hard to concentrate at school because he was surrounded by girls he had a crush on.

The 41-year-old star said, “I was always getting crushes on girls. To be honest I was a hopeless romantic. I love cars but I never went through a pure car stage. For me, girls were never off the table. I liked girls with a sense of fun. I was never into the more serious ones!”

Eric is now happily married to his wife Rebecca, and the couple have two children. But his own childhood in Australia was far less happy. With a Croatian father and a

German mother, the actor’s family faced a lot of racist jibes when he was growing up.
