Matt Dillon has hinted his romance with Cameron Diaz failed because she wasn't ready to settle down and start a family.

The Crash star dated Diaz for three years before they split in 1998, shortly after the couple filmed There's Something About Mary together, and now he's speaking out about losing one of the loves of his life.

Still single at 42, Dillon says, "I fell in love. It's a very powerful thing when you feel that way about somebody. Cameron was a muse for me. I hadn't been in any deep emotional relationships."

But, in attempting to explain the split in Parade magazine , Dillon reveals, "I sometimes think love is God's way of hoodwinking people into having kids.

"You fall in love, and all that passion goes into procreating and wanting children. I've felt that need to want to raise a child... I'm open to life now, even to marriage. I'm open to the idea that things will work out."
