Taylor Swift is rumored to be dating Brenton Thwaites, a Hollywood newcomer who has the makings of a heartthrob and—potentially—a line in the singer’s next song.
Swift was photographed cozying up to Thwaites at the Toronto International Film Festival on Monday — and judging by the flirtation, a new romance could be brewing between the young stars. Relatively unknown, Thwaites is bound to skyrocket to fame after his upcoming roles in The Giver and Disney’s Maleficent alongside Angelina Jolie. And the 24-year-old looks the part of a Hollywood hunk as well, with a bronze complexion and megawatt smile that appears to have won Swift over.
Swift was at TIFF for the premiere of One Chance, for which she penned a song. Thwaites’ rumored girlfriend was clearly in good spirits at the event, and took to Twitter to share her experience with fans. “Tonight [is] my first Toronto Film Festival experience,” Swift tweeted. “Going to the premiere tonight of One Chance, honored to have written the end credit song!” While Swift was reveling in her latest accomplishment, her companion was promoting his latest film, Oculus.
You may recognize Swift’s latest love from his role in Lifetime’s Blue Lagoon: Awakening, where the sexy actor stripped down for some seriously steamy scenes. While the Australian native’s career is set to take off, he has confessed to wanting to remain laid-back despite the level of success he reaches. “I’m very shy,” Thwaites said after his role in Blue Lagoon. “I haven’t had the whole ‘famous’ thing happen to me yet, and I hope I never will. I like to sneak away in the corners and hide a lot,” Swift’s beau explained.
And while Thwaites enjoys his alone time, his life off set is far from boring. The actor’s Instagram account prove that Thwaites is definitely adventurous and athletic. Whether Swift’s boy toy is skateboarding in California, flying a plane, or cruising on a yacht, it’s clear that the “I Knew You Were Trouble” singer will be plenty occupied if the relationship heats up. But for now, Thwaites is likely focusing on his rising star power and reveling in the experience. “I’m living my dream!” Thwaites gushed.
