Kristin Chenoweth revealed this week that she is “so ready” for a relationship.
And the actress and singer told LAGoss.com what she is looking for in a man at the press preview for the Paley Center’s Hairspray Live! exhibit on Friday.
Kristin admitted she finds it “so funny” that people picked up on her comment about wanting a boyfriend, but added that the most important quality to her is a good heart.
“Honestly, kindness to others is a big thing with me,” she said. “Because I think if you see somebody treat others kindly and with respect, they’ll treat you that way too.”
While Kristin – who has dated stars including Aaron Sorkin and Seth Green – always commands the stage and the screen no matter what project she is working on, she doesn’t feel confident all the time.
“There are many days where I feel like crap, that I’m tired, that I don’t want to get out of bed just like everybody else,” she told us. “But people don’t want to hear that and you know what? I don’t blame them.

“This is the life I’ve chosen. So on those days – and they are aplenty lately because I’m so tired – I’m like, ‘You get your butt up girl! You can walk, you can breathe, you’re alive.’”
Kristin played Velma Von Tussle in Hairspray Live!, which aired on NBC in December, and despite her incredibly impressive career, she said she learned a lot from her young co-stars – especially on-screen daughter Dove Cameron.
“They didn’t need my advice because they were so damn good on their own!” she laughed. “But I’ve worked with Dove now twice, and she has said a couple of times, ‘I just learn so much by watching you.’ But really the truth is, I’ve learned by watching her.

“Because we just re-inspire each other. I’ve been there, and she’s going there, and we just meet in the middle. I remember how fun it is to come to work, to get to do what we get to do, and it was just something I appreciated her for. So I learned from her actually.”
The exhibition – which includes plenty of the amazing costumes, props and set pieces from the production – opens at the Paley Center for Media in LA on April 22nd.
You Can’t Stop the Beat: the Art & Artistry of Hairspray Live! is free to the public and will be open until May 21st 2017.
