...after featuring in talent show Model Behaviour, Jamie dropped out London, getting contracts for Calvin Klein and he met Keira on an Asprey shoot. They fell in love with each other there for two years before a painful, public split. At the time he was open about why it fell apart, citing his struggle with her sudden success - and bigger bank balance. "The man is meant to be the alpha in the relationship, and clearly I was not," he said, though he says now it was meant as a joke. "There’s been a lot of nonsense talked about it," adds David loyally.
OK, so what about all these other women he’s been linked to? (He was spotted with Sienna in London in March, dined at London’s Dorchester with Kate and was seen with Lindsay last month in New York.) "I’ve met them, but that’s it," insists Jamie. "If you’re seen talking to someone then, according to the tabloids, you’re dating them. Even if they’re not single, which is upsetting. Imagine what their partner thinks when he reads that. But it’s amazing the people who believe it. I’ve even had friends who know me quite well ring up saying, 'Why didn’t you tell me you’re going out with Kate Moss?' Well, because I’m not!"
In fact, Jamie, who’s currently single, says he’s not much of a smooth-talker, let alone a serial dater of celebrity beauties. "The truth? I’m really shy when it comes to women. If I get on well with someone, and we’re making each other laugh, people think that’s flirting, but I just see it as a conversation. And I very, very rarely start it." But of Kate Moss he says: "It was brilliant working with her. She’s the best model in the world, an absolute legend. And she’s great fun."
This autumn we’ll also see Jamie make his film debut, starring opposite Kirsten Dunst in Marie-Antoinette. He plays Axel von Fersen, Swedish ambassador to the court and Marie-Antoinette’s lover. His main passion, however, is clearly music and he and David are working on their first album — their music is folksy with a rock edge. Success seems assured for Sons of Jim and, of course, it helps that Jamie is already one of the most desired men in Britain. "Desired by who?" he says, embarrassed. "Er, that sounds... interesting." He stops, rubs the table with his fingers while a blush creeps across his cheeks, laughs some more, then finally decides to accept the compliment. "I don’t think it’s true, but it’s nice. In fact, yes, I’ll take that."
