Jared did a podcast with Aysha Tyler, who is the host of Girl on Guy. She interviewed Padalecki in the time of Comic Con and they talked about a lots of things about job, family, children, etc.
He threw away a potential career as an engineer to become an actor, and then was almost immediately cast on a huge network show. he’s been on not one, but two long-running drama series. his current show, supernatural — once pegged for cancellation — has a wild-eyed, growing fan base, and is set to launch its eighth season.
You would think a guy whose world was so chock full of goodness would be intolerable company. but jared is super friendly, insanely down to earth, and completely forthcoming. he is handsome without being self-conscious, cool without being a douche, funny without trying too hard. it is impossible not to like this guy.
If you drew up blueprints for an awesome friend who was razor smart, casually funny, crazy good looking, totally self-effacing and tall enough to get you shit off of high shelves, you would come up with jared padalecki.
