Oh, the things you'll learn about Taylor Kitsch — forever and ever Tim Riggins — in the July issue of Elle, out June 23. He rides a motorcycle. He was originally asked to read for the part of Jason Street on Friday Night Lights. He lives in Austin (because, y'know, "Texas forever"). His email sign-off is "No regrets." He's pumped about starring in season 2 of True Detective.

Did we happen to mention that's he single? The 34-year-old actor no doubt has his pick of Riggins-devoted fans, but says his work makes a relationship tricky.

"You sacrifice so fuckin' much [as an actor]," he tells the magazine. "How do you build a relationship with a gal and then tell her, 'Hey, I gotta do press all over the world. I expect you to have the same feelings you have now in eight weeks.' And that's not me playing the violin. It's my choice. But it better be worth sacrificing for."

Um, Taylor. We've been having the same feelings since 2006. What time do you want to be picked up from the airport? [Elle]
