Users of popular dating website Match.com rejoice: Jenny McCarthy revealed that she had joined the pool of people who search for a mate online at the American Music Awards Sunday night. The 39-year-old actress and single mother told RadarOnline that she had specified a search for men between the ages of 35 to 48 and wanted "just a nice guy." That nice guy will also be in for a nice surprise: McCarthy says she is careful not to disclose any personal details or her real name to prematurely reveal her identity on the website.

And while some may scratch their heads why a famous Hollywood face and former Playboy Playmate would need help from the internet to meet new people, McCarthy explains that it has to do a little with living in Los Angeles: "It's so hard out here. The guys are like chicks here… There's no real guy guys, so maybe importing from somewhere will be smart. Anyone not from L.A., I think."

McCarthy previously dated Jim Carrey for five years; the couple split amicably in April 2010. McCarthy recently appeared on an episode of "Millionaire Matchmaker" with friend Patti Stanger.
