Following the release of the new Netflix rom-com, Love Hard, many fans have been curious about actor Darren Barnet's dating life. 

Barnet sat down with television host Rachel Lindsay from ExtraTV to talk candidly with his co-actors from Love Hard. 

Since the theme of the movie is about the main character being catfished on a dating app, the cast went on to share their personal experiences with being catfished.

The actor also cleared the air and talked about his relationship with his new girlfriend, who is also his co-actor in the film. 

Darren Barnet’s Real-Life Catfishing Story

Barnet shared the anecdote of being catfished by a woman a few years back.

While having lunch at a restaurant, his eyes met a young lady who was also hanging out at that place. Understandably, they kept the ball rolling and decided to meet to spend some time together and have dinner together. 

"When we sat down, the nice girl I met at lunch had completely gone away," he said. "She was bragging about how famous she was in Romania."

Things went downhill after that conversation and Barnet realized he had been catfished. He wasn't having a great time with his date and she even called the date "boring" in front of his face.

When he asked her if she wanted him to drop her at her place after the date, she denied his offer and went on "a truck full of four dudes".
