Hollywood star Jennifer Tilly was devastated when she discovered the reason her ex-boyfriend struggled to remain aroused during sexual intercourse - he was gay.

The BOUND star became paranoid she wasn't sexy enough for her beau after realising he lost his erection every time he opened his eyes and looked at her.

The 46-year-old confides, "I suspected something because if he opened his eyes while we were having sex, he'd lose his erection. I thought, 'I'm not sexy enough.'"

After repeated problems with her boyfriend's manhood, Tilly confronted him and he admitted he actually preferred men.

But Tilly was far from being relieved it wasn't her sex appeal that was in question: "I was reeling."
