Brenton Thwaites, who stars in new film The Giver alongside Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep, squashed dating rumors and set the record straight. The actor wanted to make sure fans knew he is not dating his co-star Taylor Swift.
In an interview with People, Thwaites admitted to learning his lesson and just how cautious he should be with how much information he should share in the future. However, Thwaites did not specify which piece of information led to the rumors.
"It's just crazy how the tiniest piece of information can get spread all across the world when the right name's involved," Thwaites said.
The pair were rumored to be dating after Swift was allegedly seen flirting with Thwaites during the Toronto Film Festival last year. The two apparently spent time in a booth during the premiere of Oculus, which Thwaites starred in and was promoting, reported Breathe Cast.
The dating rumors may be the beginning for Thwaites, who will have to get accustomed to the many more that will follow since the young star has been in the spotlight again, now for his recent role in The Giver, which was a "dream come true."
The Giver, based off of the early 90’s novel novel by Lois Lowry, was released this past week. The film landed a spot in the top five at the box office and was expected to earn a soft $13 million for the weekend, reported Deadline.
As the film continues to move it's way up in the box office, Thwaites will be pushed even more into the spotlight. The young actor admitted that being in the spotlight is different, but still a challenge.
"It's really exciting, but at the same time, it's quite daunting."
