Milo Ventimiglia, who rose to stardom after playing his role Jess Mariano in Gilmore Girls, spilled the beans on why people love his character so much and want to find someone like him. Speaking in an interview, the actor also discussed the relationship of Jess and Rory.
Milo Ventimiglia Reveals Why People Want Someone Like Jess
All the speculations about the life of Jess and Rory will only come to life if the show will be picked up for Season 2. And while everyone eagerly waits for a miracle, the American actor shared his idea on why everybody loves Jess so much. Many may have wondered what drew them to him in the first place, and now, Ventimiglia is filling in the blanks.
The 40-year-old Gilmore Girls hunk explained, “Still to this day, you know, it blows me away – the impact of the Jess character, how much everyone was in love with him and wanted to find a guy a like Jess. He was kind of trouble, you know.”
The actor went on to detail his idea on why girls want someone like Jess. Ventimiglia said, “He had good hair. He had that pompadour thing going. He had dope jackets, and he always had a book in his back pocket. And I feel like, well if you’ve got that hair and you’ve got a cool jacket, and you’ve got a book in your pocket, you must be good for a girl.”
Gilmore Girls Ventimiglia Discusses Jess and Rory’s Relationship
It is an indisputable fact that many viewers love Jess, thanks to the storied acting skills of the then-24-year-old hottie Ventimiglia. His character lived on for years as Rory’s most short-lived and yet perfect relationship. Although his fans demand a second revival season of the sitcom, the actor seemingly broke their hearts when he announced that he would not be reprising his role in case it would be continued.
Ventimiglia also denied the rumors that Jess might be the father of Rory’s baby. However, he somehow retracted his remarks when he said his character might still be in the running. After all, the hunk went to see Rory in Stars Hollow during the revival season just when she needed someone to boost her declining self-confidence. It is possible that something romantically happened between the two in that brief meeting.
When Jess left Rory in Stars Hollow that day, fans got the impression that he still loved her. However, he chose to keep those feelings to himself. Jess let Rory walk away from him, thinking that they were better off as friends. Gilmore Girls star Milo Ventimiglia also quipped that as much as Jess would always love Rory, the timing was all off and whatever they had was all in the past.
