Phone? Check. Keys? Check. Wallet? “Uhhh…” was probably Skylar Astin’s reaction to perhaps his biggest dating flub to date. In a 2020 interview with Glamour, the outlet asked the actor-slash-singer some “inappropriate questions” — including “What’s the sexiest thing about yourself?” (“A pretty healthy balance of drive and humor [and being a] Libra,” he responded) and “What’s the weirdest thing you do in your alone time?” (watching professional wrestling and dancing apparently consumes Astin’s private time).
However, when the outlet asked, “What was the worst thing you’ve ever done on a date?” Astin had a rather humorous anecdote to accompany. “I forgot my wallet once,” Astin recalled. “I’d made the person come to my side of town, and we’d been making jokes about how I would definitely pay,” he continued. “I knew she would pay, but I was so embarrassed. I had to say, ‘I’m mortified about this, but is there any chance you’ll stay here for 20 minutes and I’ll just go back and get it?’ Thank God, I was very close to my house,” he concluded. Thank God indeed, Mr. Astin!
It seems as if Astin was gifted with the natural ability to avert crises in situations like this one — and perhaps it was his same smooth-talking ways that landed him in a relationship with Lisa Stelly.
