"I get why chicks dig him," Emmy, 23, told People at the launch of the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., demurring to say if the rocker is her boyfriend.

Counting Crows lead singer Adam Duritz has dated a number of Hollywood's hottest stars, from Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox to Winona Ryder and Mary-Mary Louise Parker — and his rumored latest flame, Emmy Rossum, can explain why.

"I get why chicks dig him," Emmy, 23, told People at the launch of the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., demurring to say if the rocker is her boyfriend.

"Let's put it this way," she said. "I'd be flattered if someone hit on me tonight, but I really can't say if I'm available or not."

So what is it about Adam, 45, that lures the ladies?

"He's extremely kind, incredibly intelligent, thoughtful, creative and respectful," Emmy explained.

Last month, the "Phantom of the Opera" star filed for divorce from her husband, music executive Justin Siegel. The divorce came out of the blue for the star's fans, many of which were unaware she was married.

The actress is moving forward with her life – reportedly with Adam — but she still isn't ready to open up about her romantic dalliances.

"I normally would never go out with a famous guy," she told the mag. "I don't discuss my love life because it's always misinterpreted or put under the microscope."

Whoever she's dating, the gorgeous actress said she feels comfortable enough with herself to keep the lights on during intimate moments.

"I used to be an artsy, quiet, kind of chubby kid – which no one believes," she said. "But now I'm really comfortable with my body and my sexuality. I can be naked with the lights on."
