From the James Gunn Films Super and Guardians of the Galaxy, comes one of our newest infatuations, Mikaela Hoover. You may also recognize her from her appearances on How I Met Your Mother, Two & a Half Men and Happy Endings. We recently had the opportunity to ask her a few questions about life and love, and now we’re ready to ditch our old pickup lines, good looks and ab selfies, and hire her as our official wing woman.
Urbasm: Hi Mikaela, what do you have going on for the new year?
Mikaela Hoover: I just finished a short film with Kristoffer Polaha & McKaley Miller called Frontman. I also have a web series called Zombie Basement starring Angela Kinsey, Daryl Sabara and Graham Rogers that should be out soon.
Urbasm: Well, we loved you in Guardians of the Galaxy, so we’ll be looking forward to those.
MK: Thank you. It was an incredible experience.
Urbasm: What is something unique about you that most guys might not realize?
MK: I’m from a small town and very proud of it.
Urbasm: What is the best small town pickup line you ever heard?
MK: I don’t think there are any good pickup lines. Unless it is truly genuine. I would steer away from pickup lines.
Urbasm: Ahem, we never use those. What do you think is the worst dating mistake guys make, besides bad pickup lines?
MK: Assuming your looks are going to carry the date.
Urbasm: What are a few other things that most guys overlook that would make them more successful with women?
MK: Confidence and humor.
Urbasm: A lot of dating experts tell men to be confident and not to give up on women too easily. Do you agree with that philosophy, and what are the signs when a man really should give up?
MK: I think it depends on the situation. I like a man who pursues and doesn’t give up too easily; it’s sexy. On the other hand, it can be creepy when you really don’t like the dude.
Urbasm: You seem to have a good eye for romance. Have you ever had the opportunity to be a wing woman for a guy friend?
MK: I’m usually the wing woman and I love it.
Urbasm: Well, you’re hired. And for our first lesson, what are the three things that every guy should know about meeting women, according to Mikaela?
MK: One, don’t take photos of your abs in the mirror and send them to chicks. Two, confidence is the sexiest thing in the world; and three, humor is the second sexiest thing in the world.
Thank you Mikaela.
