Ginnifer Goodwin may play (one of three) housewivse on Big Love, but this star shows that she definitely has a sultry side in the new issue of W with a sexy photo shoot. In fact, she even admits to a bit of trickery when it comes to the dating scene in Hollywood.

 

"I perpetuate rumors that I’ve dated people that I’ve never actually dated," she tells the mag.

 

As for her bubbly TV personality, Margene, Ginnifer does admit they have a few things in common.

 

“We both have a lot of energy,” she says. “We’re both optimistic and we’re both romantics. But I am far more judgmental than she is. I read too much between the lines, whereas she reads none.” Goodwin forces a dry chuckle. “I’m exhausted by her after six months. By the end of a season, I need to shake her off.”

 

Ginnifer also opens up about her love life now that she and her boyfriend of two years, Chris Klein, have ended their relationship.

 

"I know now that there are men out there who are, for me, the whole package, who are supportive of my successes because they know I will be just as supportive of theirs," she reveals. "I’m less tolerant of foolishness now; I know that it’s important I not tie myself up with the wrong person, because then I will miss the right person coming along."

And for the sake of her career, Ginnifer admits being part of a twosome is important to her.

 

“I’m a better person in a relationship, and I’m a happier person,” she admits. “I need to come home at the end of the day and have it not be about me and my freaking hair and makeup and character motivations anymore. And I think my work is more inspired when home is safe and sound and solid, because what I do for a living is so bananas and so insecure.”
