The Daily Grind Video

Omari Hardwick has been stealing the hearts of women across America since he graced our television screens in shows like Dark Blue and Saved.

Now, the actor is conquering the role of the smooth talking Levi alongside Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter, Mike Epps and a bevy of A-list celebs in Whitney Houston’s last film Sparkle. 

We had the opportunity to catch up with the dapper Omari to chat a little about what he is looking for in a lady, and how his real life persona compares to the one he plays in Sparkle.

Check out what the lust-worthy Omari had to say below:

GlobalGrind: You came off so smooth and dapper in Sparkle. Our readers just want to know, what would it take for you in real life to actually go after somebody who was trying to take your girl from you?

Omari Hardwick: What would it take? I’m usually pretty confident, so it would have to take major disrespect. I usually feel like I gravitate towards girls that can handle themselves, if that makes sense. So I just think strong women are the most attractive. So it would have to be a moment where she could not handle herself and she was beyond disrespected and there’s definitely a side of me that I would go after someone like that.

Hmm, seems like Omari is one to get protective over his ladies, a trait that some may find quite sexy.
