Michael Ealy covers Upscale Magazine, Talks Love Life and Dating Industry Chicks

Michae Ealy, Upscale July 2012
Michael Ealy graces the cover of the July 2012 issue of Upscale magazine. Fresh off the success of the hit romantic comedy Think Like A Man, the actor sat down with the publication to discuss, among other things, his love life and the women he has no interest in dating ever again. Check out excerpts from the interview below.

On why he doesn’t date industry chicks

“I’ve been done with [dating industry women].  You do it for years and years and years—theater, television, film. It’s a workplace thing… But the difference for me now is that I’m mature enough to know that this is a work thing. The minute we stop production, I’m not going to feel this way anymore.”

On why his past relationships were a bust

“I think there was a part of me that was just attracted to the crazy.  I tended to involve myself with women that brought drama. And I had a bit of a savior complex. I thought I could save them from whatever daddy issues or cheating issues [they had].”

“In the past, I was definitely known as a guy who took himself and his relationships a little too seriously. I won’t say that I always knew how to have a lot fun.”

Ealy currently stars as Travis Marks in the cop drama “Common Law,” airing Fridays at 10/9c on USA.
