The 53-year-old actress is currently looking for love, and Shannen has revealed that she's keen to find a man who doesn't feel intimidated by her fame and success.

Speaking to Tori Spelling on the 'misSPELLING' podcast, Shannen explained: "We’re not just women who make money. We’re women that have power, we’re women that have fame. I don’t know any different.

"I feel guilty. Like, how am I ever gonna be with a man and he doesn’t feel like less than me just because of my status?"

Despite this, Shannen acknowledged that the are plenty of men who are similarly successful in their own field.

The actress said: "There are men that have their own status. Maybe in a completely different field.

"Maybe a man is a partner at one of the top law firms. So everything he did - going to school, graduating, being an intern, working his way up the ladder - has shown that he’s a really hard worker with a ton of perseverance and believes in himself enough in order to get there."

Meanwhile, earlier this year, Shannen revealed that Kelly Ripa was acting as her matchmaker.

The 53-year-old TV star is determined to help her showbiz pal to find love, following her split from ex-husband Kurt Iswarienko.

The actress said on the 'Let’s Be Clear with Shannen Doherty' podcast: "Kelly is awesome because I just saw her when I did her show and at the commercial break, she was like, ‘Are you ready? Are you ready to date? Are you ready for a boyfriend? I’m going to find you someone'.

"She started asking me like, ‘What’s your list? What do you need?’ She was like, ‘Oh, I think I got somebody in mind.'"
