When they played tragic lovers in iconic Seventies film Love Story Ryan O'Neal found himself falling for Ali MacGraw.
And 40 years later the actor admitted that he still has some feelings for his former co-star, who is now 71.
Ryan, 69, made the admission as the pair were reunited on a special edition of Oprah, celebrating the film's 40th anniversary.
He spoke of how he believes Ali was his first true love – although he couldn't act on his feelings at the time because she was married to film producer Robert Evans.
Ryan eventually found love with Farrah Fawcett, who died last year after losing her battle with cancer.
When asked if he thought he might ever find love again, the 69-year-old replied: "Well, I'm gonna work on this one [Ali] over the weekend."
