You’ve met Malik, now really meet Hosea Chanchez, in this VIBE interview The Game star lets us in on where he meets ladies, celebrity crushes and more. Chanchez is the total package of sex appeal, charisma and wit, and as they say on The Game, 'That’s what’s up.' —Storm
VIBE: We’ve all seen Malik mack and get women, so which place or situation is Hosea most likely to meet ladies?
Hosea Chanchez: At the airport.
You’ve actually met girls that you would go out with there?
[Laughs] Yeah, why do you sound so shocked? I wouldn’t meet her at a club. If you are probably in the club you probably aren’t the chick for me. I say airports because I spend a lot of time in them, so that’s a perfect place.
What would be an ideal date for you?
Completely submerging myself in ‘her’ world. I’m a people watcher/learner. I can’t be like movies and dinner, that’s not me. I love to do those things but I like to find out more about people. So for me it would be about coming to her house, watch movies, look through her DVD’s. I am nosy as hell by the way [laughs] see what she’s watching, check her search engine to see what she’s been up to, I’m just kidding. Seriously it would be about submerging myself into her world whatever that may be.
Most celebrities have them; do you have any celebrity crushes?
Sanaa Lathan, Halle Berry, I could go on but I don’t want to bore you [laughs] Zoe Saldana, and Scarlett Johansson.
As someone who obviously works out in the gym a lot, which artists in your I-pod get you motivated?
I usually play Lil Wayne’s albums. Kanye West’s new album, every track I love. Blueprint & Blueprint 3 by Jay Z. Classics. I have a mix in my iPod but that’s the majority of what it is. Those are the artists that consume my mix.
You often treat your Facebook friends and Twitter followers to uplifting quotes. Is there a plan to maybe take it one step further and do to a self-help book or get involved with speaking engagements?
For me Twitter and this job in general as an actor, celebrity whatever you want to like to call it— is an opportunity to help people. I have a foundation called Watch Me Win that is all about youth empowerment. And I travel across this country empowering kids to be the best they can be. I believe it’s not what you do but what you do with what you have that makes you who you are. So for me, it’s my God given duty, it’s my right, it’s my calling to inspire and encourage and do my best to help someone else be a better version of themselves. That’s what I believe life is all about. Everything I do always goes back to that idea.
