Prom is a completely different experience if you're one of your school's best athletes. Most likely. I'm not sure. I wasn't a star athlete. But I assume it's very different. I assume everyone thinks you're cool and you're nearly guaranteed to have a great night and not go home crying about how big of a loser you are. But, these celebrity prom photos prove that even star athletes had an awkward phase, and maybe their prom wasn't so different from yours.
