However, Redmayne has finally addressed these reports, and unsurprisingly, he confirmed that he and Swift have no romantic history — because Swift doesn’t fall head over heels for every dreamy foreign man she meets, obviously.
During his appearance on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, Redmayne was asked by a viewer about his rumored 2012 romance with Swift, to which he replied, “I absolutely can put the rumors to rest. I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift. Although I met Taylor Swift.”
So, how did the pair meet? Well, you may remember the 2012 film, Les Misérables, which starred Redmayne, as well as countless other famous faces — including Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and Samantha Barks. Swift auditioned for the role of Éponine in the film (which was eventually given to Barks) and she and Redmayne got to sing together, which according to Redmayne, “was a big moment” for him. But he was quick to add that, “no we never went out. She was extraordinary.”
Well, that clears that up then!
