Michael Ealy ranks high on most women's choice for the perfect guy, but the actor wants the world to know that he didn't, in fact, wake up like this. "I have morning breath, just like everybody," he humbly admits, and even adds that a lot of the credit for his suave reputation goes to movie magic.
"I don't have John Legend music playing every time I say 'I love you,'" he tells us. But in his new film The Perfect Guy, in which he gets to woo the beautiful Sanaa Lathan, Ealy pulls out all the stops. And it works — at least for the first half of the film.
Watch our interview with the actor below to hear more about how he turned his character from smooth operator to total psycho, and don't forget to catch The Perfect Guy in theaters starting September 11.
