Lindsey Vonn has been single since her very public breakup with Tiger Woods in 2015, and on Wednesday she explained why: it's (not surprisingly) very hard to date like a normal person when you're the most famous skier in the world.

In a more-than-slightly awkward interview on Access Hollywood with Kit Hoover and Donald Faison (Turk from Scrubs), Vonn said that people are often too intimidated to even talk to her.

"They just have to be confident and charismatic, that's the only requirement. You just [have to] be confident in yourself and ... don't be afraid to say 'hi.' I feel like no one ever says hi to me! No one ever talks to me .... Just come up and say 'hi.' I mean, don't be creepy. Don't do the creepy, weird 'let's take a picture, oh yeah are you that skier?' No. Just say 'hey, my name is Tom, nice to meet you.'"
