Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke star in Before Midnight

Ethan Hawke has said his new romantic movie is one he can finally tell his male friends to go and see.

The actor, 42, stars together with Julie Delpy in their third movie together, Before Midnight.

Ethan said that the film had none of the cliches that you find in some romantic flicks.

"Most romances seem to have either a female agenda, where the guys are all dopes, or a masculine idea of what romantic love is supposed to look like, with Eva Mendes crawling across the floor in a bikini," he said.

"What's so wonderful about this movie is it's kind of 'genderless'. It's fun to make a romantic movie that I'm not ashamed to ask my male friends to go see."

French co-star Julie, 43, added: "It was our goal when we did this, that it's neither macho or feminist or man-hating."

Before Midnight is the third in a series of films about Jesse and Celine, two characters who met in 1995's Before Sunrise.

:: Before Midnight is in cinemas now.
