Milo Ventimiglia on the Kiss That ‘Definitely Put Me On My Ass’

Milo Ventimiglia is one of the most talked about men in Hollywood. Playing Jack Pearson on This Is Us and becoming a household name, he’s setting a standard for men everywhere. It’s not just the character he plays either, it’s who he is and the parts of himself he brings to Jack.

Jack is a romantic, the kind that makes us all want to find our own Mr. Pearson, and that’s not just an act. In a recent interview, he recalled the first kiss that he ever had that ‘put him on his ass’ and the way he described it was perfect.

It might have been a friend of mine who was older than me who liked this girl, but he was kind of picking on her. And he’s like, ‘Well, you should just kiss Milo.’ And I was literally, ‘Huh?’ It was at my friend’s house. I think this beautiful girl, her name was Michelle. And I remember she walked up and just grabbed me, and pulled me in and kissed me. And I couldn’t leave the couch after that.

He continued to say that it was something he’d never really felt before.

I was shocked and terrified and in love and feeling something I’d never really felt before. And it was amazing and I wanted it again, but that was my friend Roger’s girl that he was kind of dating. Yeah, I think that one definitely put me on my ass.

Milo also talked about keeping his personal life private and why he lives the way that he does.

What I always try to do is minimize my personal life,” he said. “Listen, I go to the store, I go get my car fixed, I have friends, I have a life, but nobody needs to know about it. Because I’m just the same as anyone else. I don’t think of myself as anything more than a person who sits in the living room with you telling you a story.  just happen to be in 16 million living rooms. So for me, I never want to ruin that experience so I try and keep my private life private and let the characters and the work be the experience for an audience.

We love that he’s been able to keep his personal life private enough that he feels comfortable being able to go to the star and to get his car fixed. Sometimes, when you reach a certain level of fame, it’s nearly impossible to continue day to day activities, and no one deserves that. Plus, it’s left him with the drive to put his all into his characters and give his audience ‘experiences’ – and we think he’s excelled at it.
