Penn badgley in high school

I do realize this person no longer dates Blake Lively

And I also realize that applying the term “heartthrob” to Penn Badgley is maybe a bit of a stretch. Whatever. He seems nice and he’s come a long way since high school. Also, if you were born in the 80’s or early 90’s, I think we all knew guys in high school who has this particular haircut, which now seems comically unflattering on everyone. Why did people do that? Was it Friends? Maybe it was that. By that token, are kids now running around high school wearing smoking jackets because they grew up on Gossip Girl? And swilling martinis? Jesus Christ, we were born in the wrong decade.
