I Have a Crush on Milo Ventimiglia

I never really had a thing for Milo Ventimiglia. I definitely liked watching him as Jess on Gilmore Girls and I love when he flies on Heroes, but it ended at that.

Well, all that quickly changed the moment I saw him in person on the NBC red carpet. I kid you not, I saw Milo from afar and I started to get butterflies. I immediately blurted out to the reporters around me, "I think I have a crush on Peter Petrelli." (Peter, of course, is the character Milo plays on Heroes.)

Luckily I was able to keep my composure during our interview, but that didn't stop me from running home to my boyfriend to tell him I love Milo. Plus, I even think I may take down my Robert Downey, Jr. computer background and replace it with Milo.

Anywayyyyy, being a massive Gilmore Girls fan (I totally bought my mom a GG card for Mother's Day), I had to ask Milo if he cares that so many people still refer to him as Jess.

"You know what, that's all part of my upbringing. There's been a lot of work that I've done and I don't deny the fact that Jess was my first real thrust into the public eye. But I appreciate it. I enjoy that people are fans of that. And I'll tell you what. That was an amazing show. A great show."

Milo also keeps in touch with some of the cast (though he didn't mention former flame Alexis Bledel), and said he recently ran into Jared Padalecki (Dean of Gilmore and Sam of Supernatural) at the airport.

As cute as Milo is, he's also incredibly humble. First of all, he doesn't think he's "made it" yet, saying "I'm at the top of the bottom." You gotta remember, the kid went from one hit TV show to another—something that doesn't happen too often, even to the biggest stars. And yet, he doesn't let any of it get to his head:

"To be quite honest I never expected to be a part of something like this. I never did. It's kind of frightening and exciting at the same time. I've always been one of those actors that's been under the radar and to kind of be grazing over it is interesting. At the same time it makes me feel a duty to do my job and do it well and hopefully not disappoint people."

Now I'm even more in love.
