'This Is Us' star Milo Ventimiglia talks being a sex symbol and a 'magnificent lover'

This is us, right now: Profusely sweating because Milo Ventimiglia is talking about his sex life.

The "This Is Us" star didn't get too graphic, but in a new SiriusXM interview, host Bevy Smith nudged him in the right direction: "I bet you're a magnificent lover, very giving," she said.

"Yes, I love very deeply," Ventimiglia replied.

Still breathing? There was more to the interview, if your little heart can take it. The two went pretty in-depth about Ventimiglia's heartthrob status.

"You're a sex symbol," Smith said flatly. "In the truest sense of the word. Are you uncomfortable with that?"

"No, I'm not uncomfortable with it," Ventimiglia said. "I try and represent what men could be ... Just be a strong man, a good man, contribute to the world instead of taking away from it."

In turn, "you're going to attract a good mate," he said. "You're going to attract someone who loves you for who you are -- not for just how your nose is placed in relation to your chin."

As far as "This Is Us," there are two more episodes left this season, and Smith hit Ventimiglia with exactly the right question: "Are we crying, are we devastated, are we going into a mental institution, do we need someone to hold us, should we get a cat?"

Ventimiglia's answer: "The last two episodes are going to stress you out."

In other words, it's time to buy a cat.
