Buffy The Vampire Slayer star Sarah Michelle Gellar would never date another actor; because she values her privacy too much.
And despite being voted the World's Sexiest Woman more than once, the actress takes relationships very much to heart.
She explains, "I'm definitely no push-over when it comes to men.
I'm only interested in a man if he's very driven and very serious.
"And I don't do anything halfway. I don't really date in the business, yet it's hard to meet people out of it because of what I do.
She adds, "going through a break-up is the most painful, personal experience in the world. The last thing I want to do is read about it, or have other people making judgments.
"I don't know how stars who have these big public relationships and break ups get through it.”
Furthermore, Gellar, who spends her time killing evil ghouls in sexy outfits, says real life is not nearly as exciting for her.
The actress lives a quiet life, and despite her sexy image, she likes it that way.
She explains, "I don't have much of a life beyond work. I get all my energy from work. I scream. I yell. I come home and go to sleep.
I'm never home. I even feel sorry for my cat!
"I'm the kind of person who gets bored if I don't work for two days, Weekends are boring."
And the Cruel Intentions actress has old-fashioned standards of how a girl should behave.
She says, "I don't drink, I don't smoke and I've never done any drugs. I avoid fried foods and have even given up coffee.
"My work provides all the caffeine I need. I have remarkably few vices, and I'm never late. Being late is rude.”
Such an attitude also prompts Gellar to rebuff rumors that she is anorexic.
Gellar is sick of being called anorexic; when she's just "small-boned.”
The sexy actress is only one of a host of skinny Hollywood stars; the Ally McBeal cast and Jennifer Aniston among them; who have been criticized for being too thin.
She says, "I've always been a skinny thing. Yes, I did at one point have some baby fat and I did lose that. But I'm a tiny boned person and I work like a dog on this show.
"Maybe some actresses have anorexia, I certainly don't.
"All that rubbish Calista Flockhart has to put up with breaks my heart for her. She is the nicest girl and such a talented actress.
She's a skinny girl; it's just natural” – WENN.
