Oh, Minka Kelly. You’re with a dude who just broke up with his long-term girlfriend. What do you THINK is gonna happen?
The actress opened up about Wilmer Valderrama during a radio interview with Power 106’s J Cruz and Krystal Bee on Thursday, September 8, pretty much gushing about his potential as a mate:
“He’s a good friend to me. Wilmer’s a really, really good person,” Kelly, 36, said. “And any woman would be lucky to have him.”
Kelly ultimately played coy about the couple’s past and present, however. “It’s funny â€” he’s not my ex,” she said Thursday. “We are good friends, and we always have been. We’re not exes!”
Which is true, really. The Friday Night Lights actress and Valderrama, 36, dated in 2012 but Wilmer ALSO dated Minka’s bff Mandy Moore for two years, from 2000 to 2002. So friends, exes, dating? Who knows anymore.
She added that having her personal life out in the open can get “really frustrating” at times.
“I think it comes with the territory. It’s a small price to pay for the extraordinary life that I live. I think if they’re paying attention, that must mean there’s something [I’m doing right],” she said. “Look, if it’s true and it’s out, then it’s true and it’s out â€¦ You just have to find the comedy in all of it.”

Ah yes, the comedy. For whatever reason, Wilmer’s got it, and Minka digs it. Again.
