Idol's Sam Woolf: I Didn't Want to Be the Show's "Heartthrob"
Sam Woolf's stint on Season 13 of American Idol came to an end last week, just about a month after the judges had used their save on him. Woolf, who recently turned 18, was clearly cast as the "ladies man" of this season. And it became increasingly uncomfortable to watch TPTB (via Jennifer Lopez) try to foist that label on him week after week, surrounding him with gaggles of tween girls, when it was clear that Woolf wanted to just focus on the music.
"Yeah. Ugh, a little bit," Woolf told TVGuide.com this week when asked if he was annoyed by the constant references to his looks. "I didn't want to be under the category 'heartthrob.' I'm not glad to be off the show, but [I'm glad] to not be under that category for the rest of the show."
