Minka Kelly: My Career Comes Before Men

Minka Kelly: My Career Comes Before Men

Friday Night Lights hottie Minka Kelly is featured in the latest issue of Men’s Health. She spills on what it takes to date a smart, ambitious woman like her. Here’s what Minka had to say:

On her career being the most important thing in her life: “A man has to be passionate about something. He has to be focused and genuine. He has to have drive. I really believe that our careers are our first loves. And I think a career should be as important for him as it is for me. And that we should be able to understand that we come second.”

On a guy needing to know more about the radiator than she does: “A man has to be good with his hands. He can’t be a person who needs to hire someone to do handiwork. I can change the oil in my car. If you can’t change your oil, we have a problem.”

On guys needed to shut up already: “A lot of guys don’t know how to just listen. They’ll talk and talk, and I just want them to get to know me. That’s attractive. You don’t want to come across as someone who can only talk about himself.”

On needing an imperfect guy: “A man should love his family, but I don’t do well with guys who come from perfect families. He has to be a little complicated and broken. I can’t relate to the perfectly home-bred boy. I want someone who has had pain in his life and learned from it.”
