Sam Trammell: How My Twins React to a Pretty Blonde Girl

Sam Trammell knows how to run with the dogs on True Blood, but when it comes to the actor’s fraternal twin sons, they’re all about the big cats.

“My boys are into destroying the house, fighting like little lion cubs,” the actor tells PEOPLE. “They’re into digging, anything that digs dirt out of the ground like diggers and jack hammers and machines.”

But a good-looking house guest can bring Gus and Winston‘s focus on the fun outdoors to a sudden standstill. Trammell jokes his 2½-year-olds have a weak spot for women and immediately turn up their rough and tumble tendencies when one’s around.

“Boys are boys. If a pretty girl comes in the house — especially with blonde hair — they just start running in circles and screaming. That’s their first reaction … they just go, ‘Ahhh!’ ” he says.

“When you’re an adult, you hold those feelings in, but when you’re a kid, you just scream and run. It’s so funny.”

Michael Strahan may arguably be the busiest guy in showbiz.

Now that he has a new part-time gig on Good Morning America — in addition to his daily job as cohost on Live! with Kelly & Michael  you would think he would want countless cups of coffee to sustain his energy. But the truth is, he’d rather have a sugary sweet.

“I have the biggest sweet tooth! You name it, I will eat it,” Strahan told PEOPLE at Friday’s grand opening of the Sprinkles Ice Cream shop in New York.

“My all-time favorite is my mother’s butter cake. Every time I go home, my mom will already have the cake made because I love it so much. This makes my siblings mad because they think she favors me. I don’t care because she probably does!”

“I kept having to get my iPhone and record her. So I have all these different takes of her saying things, singing things. Then I’d be like, ‘This is your new ad lib — learn it!’ I have to make it fun for her.”
