Sonny With A Chance star Sterling Knight chatted with BOP! about being rejected by a pretty girl at school: ‘When I was in middle school, there was a girl that was the most gorgeous person I’d laid eyes on. I told her, ‘I’m going to be an actor. I’m going to move to Hollywood. You don’t know it, but I’m going to be so cool.’ She still would not give me the time of day.
I’m sure it was because I was telling her how rich and famous I was going to be, which probably sounded completely ridiculous. Since then, I have been working and I really appreciate it. Since learning about my success, the girl I used to crush on found me on a social networking site. She tried to be all nice.
She was just saying, ‘Oh what’s going on? That’s so awesome!’ I have two pieces of advice: Girls, those nerds and dorks are going to be the guys you’re going to go for in five or six years. Don’t be mean to them. Also, if you get rejected, let it bounce off you. There are too many other things in life to focus on.
