I have a terrible, terrible fear of knives. I only buy food that I don’t need to cut…I haven’t cut my food in years! Like, I won’t even touch a plastic knife or anything sharp. And if I’m in a kitchen and somebody picks up a knife, I leave.
VIDEO: My First Time: Christian Serratos
First Date Disaster
I was a serious competitive figure skater and still ice-skate as much as I can. Anyway, I once brought a date to the rink to have him experience what I was into. So all is going fine, and then—bam!—he bit it extremely hard! Skate time was over. His bruises were scary. I felt so bad.
First Nude Photo
I did a nude anti-fur ad for PETA. The photo focuses on my butt. Now, I’ve always been, like, this stick, but for some reason I’ve always had an ass. But still, before the shoot I worked out hard and toned up. I mean, I was going to be naked! I feel like I succeeded, because Mario Lopez told me it inspired him to stop eating meat.
First Twilight Stalker
During filming I had this creepy guy just follow me everywhere one day. And he wasn’t even sly. He was like, “Yep, I’m here. I’m following you.” And then that day he cornered a friend and me in an alley and we booked it the other way. We laughed about it later, but it was frightening.
My first on-screen kiss was lame: Nickelodeon. But my first real-life kiss was super cute and nice, but still very awkward. It was with this hot skateboarder with dreadlocks. He was my little rasta man.
