Apparently Taylor Swift was dating some dude Eddie Redmayne with the keyword being “was” because apparently he’s already given her the ol’ John Mayer/Jake Gyllenhaal/Joe Jonas heave-ho. So good news if you’re a fan of her music. Via Hollywood Life:
Taylor and British actor Eddie Redmayne met when she auditioned to play Eponine in Les Miserables opposite Eddie’s Marius, Us Weekly reports.
“They hung out in New York City with the movie’s execs,” a source explains. “And Taylor developed feelings for him fast.”
“Taylor loved the image of a British boyfriend,” the insider adds.
Eddie liked her too, but when she wasn’t cast in the role, their romance came to a halt, since he will be away filming the movie in London.
“Eddie’s not interesting in a long-distance relationship. The elements were against them. It’s a shame,” the source says.
In this guy’s defense, managing a long-distance relationship takes a lot of effort, so at least he had the common courtesy to lie and blame his work. Whereas I, on the other hand, was completely honest with a girl in a similar situation and basically told her I’d just end up cheating on her which you’ll be surprised to learn did not end in good-bye sex like I imagined it in my head. Then again, neither one of us were dressed like Star Wars characters or amateur gymnasts, so right off the bat I was screwed.
