Emmy Rossum “really can’t say” whether Adam Duritz is officially her boyfriend, but she will happily dish on why women love him.
“I get why chicks dig him,” Rossum tells PEOPLE at the grand launch of the W Hotel in Washington, D. “He’s extremely kind, incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, creative and respectful.” Rossum, 23, who filed for divorce from her husband last month, has been seen recently on multiple dates with Duritz, 45, who has previously dated Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox Arquette.
