In 2009, Taylor Lautner (31) met and fell in love with pop star Taylor Swift (34) on the set of "Valentine's Day". The two then had a highly publicized relationship for a few months until Swift dumped Lautner. The contact then broke off completely. But now the two have become good friends again, as the "Twilight" star now told the podcast "Call Her Daddy" alongside his current wife Taylor Dome (26).
He named the rekindling of his friendship with Swift as one of his highlights of 2023. "I believe that if you respect someone for who they are, for example in their soul, then you can move on, forgive and transfer that love to another continue in this manner," said Lautner.
Although they both tried to stay in touch immediately after the separation, this was ultimately "lost" and they didn't speak to each other at all for a long time. The reason for this: He was simply too young to immediately switch into friendship mode. Nevertheless, he always had “the greatest respect for her as a person”. "She's just a wonderful person. And it's pretty great to have her in your life," Lautner continued.
The radio silence finally ended after the actor was asked by Swift to take on a role in the music video for "I Can See You". Together with his wife Dome, he then attended a Swift concert in Kansas City in July 2023, where the artist presented her new video to her fans for the first time.
Swift even invited Lautner onto the stage and publicly praised him for being a "very positive force" at a critical time in her life. Swift described Lautner and his wife as two of her closest friends.
Taylor Lautner married his partner Taylor Dome in November 2022. The nurse not only has the same first name as Swift and her husband, but also took his last name. Thus, Taylor Lautner and his wife Taylor Lautner are equal before the law. The two made their relationship public in 2018 and got engaged in November 2021. Taylor Swift has been in a relationship with football star Travis Kelce (34) for several months.
