Prom Horror Stories

Cindy Adams must have a new fresh-faced summer intern helping her out these days. Today "Cindy" has done a little legwork and assembled a list of celeb prom horror stories. Who knows if any of them are true—you know how actors can be with this thing called truth (or if this wasn't simply recycled from a celeb weekly)—but we'll just go with it. Shall we?


- Matt Damon got dumped at the prom after-party by his girlfriend Tammy, who then proceeded to hook up with her ex-boyfriend in the bed next to Damon.

- Kirsten Dunst didn't have a date to the prom either, so Sofia Coppola talked Josh Hartnett into asking her. But then she turned him down and didn't go at all.
