TV's Most Hated Males … & The Real-Life Women Who Love Them


Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser
These small-screen boys aren't so bad, after all.

Mad Men co-stars—and off-screen couple—Alexis Bledel and Vincent Kartheiser are headed down the aisle. According to Us Weekly, the newly engaged pair, whose romance was first reported in June, "couldn't be happier."

Thankfully for Bledel, Kartheiser has little in common with the scheming Pete Campbell. In an interview with Men's Health this month, the 33-year-old revealed that he isn't fazed knowing that most women find his Mad Men character, well, despicable.

"If someone comes up to me on the street, which they do sometimes, they'll often say, 'Oh, I love your show. The writing's so good. But I hate your character.' I take it as a compliment and walk on."

Bledel would most likely disagree with the Campbell diss; the former Gilmore Girl played Beth Dawes, a married woman who has an affair with the rising ad agency hotshot, last season on Mad Men.

And—unlike Pete the cheat—Bledel's fiancé isn't interested in having children because of environmental reasons. Back in 2010, he told MSNBC, "I've been a vegetarian for four years and I have chosen not to have children, which are both green choices in my life." 

Which other small-screen studs are nothing like their slap-worthy characters? And who are their real-life loves? VIEW THE GALLERY: TV'S MOST HATED MALES ... & THE REAL-LIFE WOMEN WHO LOVE THEM
