Revenge star Emily VanCamp finds the constant paparazzi attention, particularly surrounding her relationship with co-star Joshua Bowman, "incredibly invasive".
"It's a form of stalking to have people driving around after you," VanCamp told marie claire magazine, out today, which features her first Australian fashion shoot.
"Sometimes, it's funny though. One photographer got a picture of me taking the trash out and I was wearing my sister's trackpants that I had stolen from her. She re-posted the picture on Facebook and said 'The paparazzi are good for one thing - now I know who stole my pants'."
While the 26-year-old, who plays Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke on the smash-hit Seven drama, is usually tight-lipped about her year-long romance, she revealed Bowman found it "adorable" when she tried to pick an argument with him.
"He loves that I get frustrated - he thinks it's adorable when I make a 'cross face'," she said. "I can't be cross for long because he just makes me laugh."
During the marie claire interview, where she also posed alongside some of her hunky male co-stars, VanCamp also opened up about some of her past relationships.
"I went through a major heartbreak once. I also went through a really bad relationship with a guy who was really awful," she said. "So even though both relationships were incredibly painful, they were good for me, too. It taught me how I wanted to be treated and what I would never accept in my life again."
Being in a good place in her life, both personally and professionally, the actress said one thing she had planned was motherhood.
"I definitely find myself getting baby fever when I'm around little ones," she said."As one of four, I can't imagine not having a full house. A lot of my friends are having babies and getting married. I compare myself to my mother, who already had two kids at my age. But I work so hard that, right now, Revenge is my baby and it's giving me the same amount of sleep deprivation having a child would."
