Picture Jensen Ackles (Eric, DAYS) in a pair of silk boxers. Pretty picture, isn’t it? Well, that is exactly what Ackles wears to bed. While boxers are an old favorite, Ackles’ bedroom has a new piece of furniture. “The best part of my bedroom is my new bed,” he says. “I’ve slept on a twin-sized bed since I was 8 - right up until this year. Now, I’ve got a big queen-sized bed, so I have room to roll around. I like to sleep with two pillows, just sheets and a little thin comforter. Who needs a blanket when you can snuggle up to…a pig! “I’ve got a big, old stuffed pig,” Ackles admits. “He lies in the corner of my bed. I’ve had him ever since I can remember. He’s pink, and his name is Coke, after the soft drink, because I spilled Coke all over him when I got him.” Ackles is early to rise, but not early to bed. “I usually go to sleep late - around midnight,” he says. “I like to watch TV for a little while just before I go to bed, mostly The Tonight Show. “I always need a fan blowing directly on my face,” he adds. “The sound helps me get to sleep. Whenever I don’t have it on, all the little crickets and those little sounds outside keep me up. The fan drowns all that out.” And when it’s time to rise and shine? “A little Timex clock buzzer wakes me. Music doesn’t work, I need an annoying, repetitive sound.”
