Hey girls, Sindy here. If you're like me, you totally loved the movie What a Girl Wants and like most Kidzworld members, think Oliver James is a hottie. Since there isn't much info on the web about this newbie British actor, I decided to talk to the boy himself. Check out my exclusive chat with Oliver James.

Sindy: Hi Oliver! I thought you were great in What a Girl Wants, but when I tried to find out more info about you, there isn't much out there. Not even your birthday!
Oliver: (laughs) Well, my birthday is the first of June. June 1, 1980.

Sindy: Since this was your first big hollywood movie, I was wondering what it was like to go to the premiere?
Oliver: It was just a bit nuts, really. I got out of this stretch limo - I had never ridden in a stretch limo before - and there was flash photography going off on one side of the street. And, on the other side of the street, there were these people who don't know me, because I haven't done anything before, shouting my name. I had to turn around and take these pictures and there was all these flashbulbs going off. There's people screaming your name, 'Oliver! Oliver! To the right! To the left! Up Above! Down here!' It's just crazy.

Sindy: Are you happy with the film? Do you like your performance?
Oliver: I think with my performance, considering I had never done much in front of the camera before, I can accept my performance. I don't think I would make the same choices again, but it was a year ago and I have learned so much more since then. In terms of the actual movie, it is something that I really can be proud of.

Sindy: Was it weird kissing Amanda in front of cameras?
Oliver: It was a little strange. You have to remember it's acting. It's just a job. The thing about Amanda is, if you ever met her, she's a very, very mature person. To be honest, it's hard for me to think of Amanda as a 17 year-old. At the time she was 16 - 16 going on 30! I mean, she's been acting since she was nine or 10, so she was very mature. Also, she had a boyfriend and I have a girlfriend, so you know, you just kind of get through it - it's acting.

Sindy: Oh! You just hit on another question! I was gonna ask you if you have a girlfriend cuz lots of our members want to know.
Oliver: I do have a girlfriend.

Sindy: She's a lucky girl! But, if you were single, what would you look for in a girl?
Oliver:I wouldn't say I have a specific type. I would say I look for a girl who is confident... someone who knows who she is. Someone who can just be themselves.

    Do you mean Amanda Seyfried? If I had to choose, I'd choose Amanda over Debby.
