Prince dedicates song to English actress

PRINCE has dedicated a new song to actress friend Kristin Scott Thomas after convincing her to go topless in his film.

The pop superstar cast Scott Thomas in his 1986 flop, Under The Cherry Moon, and talked her into taking her top off.

More than 20 years later, he said he is still a big fan of the Four Weddings and a Funeral star and wrote Better With Time for his new album MPLSound, about the her lasting looks.

The lyrics read: "This might seem strange/Since so much time has passed/And since only one of us/Still looks the same/Your words not mine, baby/You're still fine yes you are/ Like wine, you get better with time."

Scott Thomas said she was thrilled that he had penned a song about her.

Speaking to the New York Daily News, she said: "If it's true, it's fantastic. He is incredibly intelligent and talented - if he's written a song for me, it's just the most wonderful present.

"He's just brilliant, brilliant, brilliant at what he does. What's really great about getting older is that down the road you meet people you haven't seen for a long time and they're still doing something you really admire."

Scott Thomas isn't the only actress to inspire Prince - he also wrote a song about Salma Hayek for the new album.
