"Ultimately [I] want someone who you can pal around with and also be intimate with," Ackles told People magazine in 2006, about his concept of a perfect partner. "Someone who can laugh at your jokes. It may sound cheesy, but someone who can be your best friend as well as your love."

Ackles, who started modeling as a toddler, shot to fame by appearing on NBC television network's soap opera "Days of Our Lives". He currently appears in the CW series "Supernatural".
