Mario Lopez celebrates the big 3-5 today.

Hopefully the birthday boy is in his location of choice — Las Vegas. “I like to gamble and go to the fights,” he tells me. “That’s always a good time for me. I’m a fights man. I like boxing, dinner, hanging out with friends, watching some fights and gambling.”

But he won’t be wearing his letterman jacket from his Saved By The Bell days. “My mom has it,” he admits.

Why do women find him irresistible? At first he blushes away the flattery, but then responds.

“I grew up with a lot of women – my sisters and my mom and I are real close. Maybe I’m patient? I can understand them a little bit. Maybe that comes across.”

Happy birthday, Mario.
