Between shooting scenes for the MTV hit show Faking It, expanding his film career and working on his music, Willett's schedule has got to be super packed, but he still made time to get candid with SheKnows about his life and what's important to him.
He answered all of our burning questions about his amazing personal style and what he looks for in a relationship, and opened up about how art can change the world.
And did we mention he also dangled an epic Faking It three-way teaser?
Get to know the super-hot Willett and find out why he's our Man Crush Monday.
Michael J. Willett: My music is my personal expression, whereas my acting is a way for me to explore other characters. The music I've been working on is inspired by classic rock and glam rock, and it's about my personal evolution.
MW: I was much more of an introvert. I hung out with all the goth and punk kids in cinematography class. I never understood what made the popular kids so popular.
MW: I want to be with someone I can grow with. I don't want someone who's set in their ways. I want to be able to change with them and become better people together.
MW: I guess it depends on whatever phase I'm in. Lately I've been in the phase of having really colorful and bold prints. My main [criterion] is looking different. I don't want to look like everyone else. Gwen Stefani and David Bowie are my style icons.
MW: Yes. Several. One is called K-9 Companions, and that is an organization that supports terminally ill patients by giving them dogs as a way to uplift them. Also AIDS/LifeCycle, which is an organization to raise awareness by cycling from San Francisco to LA.
MW: I'm not a person who does a lot of sports, so I feel it's important to exercise three to five days a week. I like to go to the gym and walk my dog, Little Dude.
MW: I rescued Little Dude from the Burbank Animal Shelter three years ago. I had been watching a lot of Cesar Millan and felt like I was ready to take on the challenge. I've definitely helped to increase his confidence, because when I got him he was so scared of everything. I also have a fish named Frederico, or Freddie for short.
MW: I feel grateful. I feel art has the ability to be powerful and change the world. And it means a lot to me when kids say they are connecting with me and our show.
MW: There's going to be another epic three-way and Shane will be involved.
MW: I'm a closet puppet freak.
