Poor Sterling Knight. He’s got a starring role on the Disney Channel’s hot new comedy series Sonny With a Chance.
To boot, he plays the son of Zac Efron and Matthew Perry in the new flick 17 Again, which this weekend overtook Miley Cyrus‘ big-screen debut, Hannah Montana: The Movie, at the box office.
But despite that success – and near-guarantee of a fabulous career – the 20-year-old heartthrob says that his love life is sorely lacking.
“I’m miserably single at this point,” Sterling tells host Zachary Sang.
And, apparently, that’s not just a line. Moments later the actor reveals his lack of mack-daddy- ness.
“People think I’m ob- scenely cool, but then they find out I’m kind of a dork,” he says.
“Usually, I’m the one who’s trying to make really awkward jokes and trying to get a smile,” he adds of his inability to impress the ladies. “And usually I fail pretty miserably.”
Later still, Sterling discusses his tastes in the fair sex.
“My general cup of tea would be Scarlett Johansson or Natalie Portman – or any of those wonderful people that will never talk to me.”
During the two-hour interview (which may be a BlogTalkRadio record for a celebrity chat), Sterling also reveals his admiration for the founder of JustJared.com and JustJaredJr.com, Jared Eng.
“I’d actually be more star-struck meeting Jared than I was meeting Zac Effron,” he says.
Among the many other fascinating tidbits you’ll learn about Sterling include:
-Why he wrote a story using nothing but the titles of John Mayer songs.
-What kind of car he currently drives – and how he plans to “pimp” that ride.
-Why he believes that “Twitter is kind of like volunteering to be stalked.”
-Why he’s worried about his dental hygiene – and wants to embark on a “floss revolution.”
-Why he says, “I think we should abolish political correctness.”
