Kristin Kreuk is not your typical Hollywood starlet. Though the 26-year-old star of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li grew up in the public eye, she prefers her quiet Canadian hometown to the paparazzi-filled streets of L.A. "I'm not looking to be in the tabloids," says the fresh-faced beauty. After lighting up the big screen in her latest role, Kreuk's going to have a hard time staying out of the spotlight. So what does it take to get this self-professed shy girl to open up to a man? MF lets you in on the secret.



Superpowers Not Mandatory
You don't have to be the Man of Steel to impress. Quite the opposite. "I'm much more interested in developing deep relationships with people than anything else. Physicality is not necessarily an aspect of that. In fact, it's completely irrelevant."

Keep It Real
It's still advisable that you plead the fifth to questions like, "Do I look fat?" But truth-telling is paramount. "I'm looking for honest communication with someone who is interested in being the best person they can be."

Opt for a Night In
A laid-back girl, she prefers a chill, low-key evening to a big night out on the town. All she needs for the perfect date is "great conversation, laughter, and a glass of wine."

Renew Your Passport
"A big part of what I love is to experience other cultures and learn new things," says Kreuk, who is of Chinese-Indonesian and Dutch descent. "I've been all over the world, and I love it."

Allow Girl Time
"I adore women. It's important for us to come together, to talk without men around." Sorry, fellas. We're sure she'll make it up to you somehow.
