I’m usually a big cynic when it comes to new hookups in Hollywood. Especially when the two people involved in the hookup are both major stars. Something about those bright lights just seems to me like they’re bound to make anything fizzle out sooner rather than later so I try not to get too excited. But, this is one hookup that I not only loooove but that I really hope will last! The hookup is between Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner! Yes, the country crooner and the Twilight werewolf seem to be hooking up but whether or not they actually are a couple seems to still be up in the air.
US has an anonymous ‘source’ that says the two will be completely open about any relationship that blooms from their newfound friendship but that they’re waiting to see if there’s anything there that will actually come to bloom. Meanwhile, Taylor Swift seems to be keeping mum on the subject herself. And when it comes to words from the star’s mouth versus the anonymous source, I tend to go with the former. This is what US has to say,
“Taylor Swift and Twilight’s Taylor Lautner reignited romance rumors when they attended a hockey game together at L.A.’s Staples Center on Sunday.
“They have gotten closer,” a source tells Usmagazine.com. “They talk all the time, [and] they like each other.”
Still, the source says the country singer, 19, and Lautner, 17 — who were also spotted at a Beverly Hills hotel following the NHL game — haven’t moved too quickly because of her national Fearless tour and his hectic Twilight saga filming schedule in Vancouver.
“It’s been hard with their schedules,” the source tells Us. “They are both young and in the spotlight.”
The source adds that the two don’t have qualms about dating in the public eye.
“They aren’t worried about the media,” the source says. “It’s just still very new. They like each other. I don’t even think they know what it is yet. They would be open about it but they need to figure out what it is first.”
So are they still just trying to figure it out or is there really something happening here and Taylor Swift just wants to keep it under wraps for a little while longer? It seems that way as People has an interview with Taylor, taken from a radio segment, where she does admit to being really close with Lautner but then shies away from saying anything more about a possible romance. From People,
“In the contest between Twilight heartthrobs Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, it’s clear where Taylor Swift’s loyalty is. The singer, who has been spending quality time recently with Launter (who plays Jacob Black in the film series) tells CMT Radio’s Cody Alan she’s definitely on “team Jake.”
When asked about rumors that the pair, who attended a hockey game together in L.A. on Sunday and had dinner with Swift’s mom on Monday, are a couple, Swift played coy.
“I don’t know, he’s an amazing guy and we’re really close … and ah … yep,” she says on the radio show airing Thursday. “We’re in a movie together and I am really excited about seeing it.”
Swift says she hasn’t yet had a chance to view any of their film, Valentine’s Day, but hopes she and Launter will “get to do a private screening because we both wanna see it so bad, cause our scene was so much fun to do, it was hilarious doing this scene!”
But then again…private screening? Hmmm….is Taylor Swift just trying to get us to read between the lines? Do you really need a private screening to watch a funny scene together? I wouldn’t think so. I think these two probably have already hooked up and really are just trying to keep things low-key for a little while. And if that’s the case, my best advice to them is to stop attending public events together. After all, a simple hockey game might as well be a wedding ceremony to the media. I hope these two do get together and that they can make it work. Even if the whole Taylor-dating-Taylor thing is a little nauseating.
