Taylor Swift gets flirty with Zac Efron

Taylor Swift might not be ready for a serious relationship, but she might be testing the waters with Zac Efron.

Zac Efron and Taylor Swift: Dating?

Could another high-profile young Hollywood romance be in the works? Singer Taylor Swift and hottie Zac Efron were spotted together at an L.A. Italian restaurant and “were deep in conversation and very giggly.”

The couple — co-stars in the upcoming movie The Lorax — arrived in Efron’s Audi, an onlooker told US Weekly.

Has Swift moved on from Jake Gyllenhaal to another A-list male celebrity? Not so fast, another insider says.

“They were in L.A. doing press stuff together, and after they were done, they decided to grab dinner,” the source told the magazine. “They have been friends a long time.”

The two have a mutual respect for one another — Efron called the Speak Now songstress a “lovely girl, very beautiful.” She’s also called the former Disney star an “all-around amazing guy.”

The songstress might just be playing the field right now, especially after her short-lived romance with Gyllenhaal.

“I really have this great life right now, and I’m not sad and I’m not crying this Christmas, so I am really stoked about that,” she told Vogue in her new cover interview.

It also sounds like her romance with the older actor will be the theme for her upcoming album.

“There’s just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak and that will turn out to be what the next album is about,” she told the magazine.

“The only way that I can feel better about myself — pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone — is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity.”

We’re ready and waiting for some angsty music, Taylor!
