Carmen Electra wants a 'smart' man

CARMEN Electra wants an "intelligent" man.

The 43-year-old model and actress would be happy to date a man out of the spotlight but is more worried about his brains than how he looks.

She said: "If they don't trust me, it's hard. It makes work hard. They have to be incredibly smart, intelligent, brains is everything. Looks aren't really a priority for me. I like artists, a sense of humour.

"But I have a tendency to get bored. I like very intelligent men because they're interesting; it's sexy to me. Someone that's open to play and have fun not someone that's so serious."

And whilst she'd love to have a special man in her life, Carmen is trying to strike up a "balance" between her work life and her home life.

Speaking on The Lowdown with Diana Madison, she added: "I just keep myself really busy and throw myself into work. I'm trying to have more balance in my life because I'm either one hundred percent work or one hundred percent relationship.

"I love doing this and I'm a workaholic sometimes and other times, I like to chill and relax. It's about finding that balance. I'm getting there."
