And while he didn't spill much else on the topic, the Victorian-born star said he was open to the idea of dating an older woman.

Asked how he feels about dating someone older, he answered: 'Only in the movies... but not that I have any aversions to the idea.

'It's just not really happened for me... But you never know what the future holds... Love knows no boundaries.'

Xavier has previously dated Pretty Little Liars star and fellow Australian Phoebe Tonkin, as well as German model Shermine Shahrivar.
