Laz Alonso: “I Don’t Date Celebrities”
His name is Laz Alonso. He is an actor that is currently single and as far as dating celebrities go, according to him, he is not about that life.
Alonso, 39, was recently interviewed by Lossip, and in it he reveals some personal information about himself with regard to his romantic side.
The interview began with a question to Alonso about his childhood to which he responded, “You know what? I will tell you… if you come to my house, you would say: ‘Okay, this guy is OCD.’” Alonso explained that growing up in a single-parent household, his mother worked several jobs to keep food on the table, so he would organize the house so that it would be easier for her to find what she needed. He explained that because of this he is comfortable with “fixing things, cooking, doing dishes and laundry.”
The interviewer acknowledged that many women would be happy with the traits Alonso picked up during childhood and asked if he would ever consider marrying a celebrity. To this question, Alonso responded no in short. “I don’t date celebs, to be honest with you,” he offered. “And it’s not that I put them in a category called ‘Celebs,’ it’s just that to me it’s all about the genuine connection . . . We have to click. If I see someone on the screen – that alone doesn’t do anything for me.”
When the interviewer asked what would set Alonso off on a date, the actor explained how much he dislikes going out with people who assume they know him because they have watched him on television.
When asked about his incomparable charm and whether or not he was born with it, Alonso responded modestly. “Thank you very much first of all – I appreciate it. But if you were to meet my mom and my family, then you would see that I’m probably the most boring person in my family. Everyone in my family is filled with jokes; they could have all been actresses in their own right. I’m probably the least talented of my family as far as it comes to having tact wit and humor.”
There goes that charm.
