5 Hot Stars Who Couldn’t Get a Date in High School

They may be irresistibly gorgeous these days, but these 5 smokin’ hot stars say they couldn’t get a date during their years in high school. Some confess they simply weren’t a part of the popular clique and were even seen as a “geek”, while one celeb even admits she ended up flying solo to her own prom. Here are their tales of singledom during those early and often awkward teen years!

Charlize Theron


Charlize never had boyfriends while at school despite having one big crush: “I didn’t have any boyfriends in high school. I had a massive, massive crush on this one guy. He was a couple of years older than me and I did not exist in his world.”

Jamie Dornan

Jamie was too young looking during his teen years and says no one wanted to date him as a result: ”I didn’t do particularly well with girls at school. I was always very young looking. And my sister’s friends would always say: ‘You’re so cute.’ I f**king hated that. If you are a skinny, baby-faced teenager, the last thing you want to hear is that you’re cute.”

Keira Knightley

She may be happily married these days, but Keira simply said she never dated during her younger years: “I didn’t have any boyfriends at all when I was in school.”

Malin Akerman

Malin reveals that she wasn’t popular in school and was more of a geek: “I wasn’t really the popular girl in school and didn’t have any boyfriends in high school because I was a nerd. I was a geek.”

Rosario Dawson

Rosario was an awkward teen and admits she didn’t have a date to her prom: “I was an awkward teenager. I went stag to my prom. I was a virgin until I was 20 years old!”
