"I think the crazy love that you fall into in the beginning turns into 'like' and 'need.' Chris Rock told me that!" he shares. "He's like, 'Kid, you wanna get married? Listen, there's love, and you can feel love the first night, but that's not what it is. It's, 'I like you and I need you.'"

He also gets real about his appeal on women.

"I am part Sicilian. I am passionate. I am a hot-blooded person," he dishes. "If you don't like spicy, then maybe I'm not for you."

Though take note ladies – he is indeed a relationship-type guy.

"I'm at my best when I have someone to wake up next to," he admits.
