Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner’s Brief Romance in 2009
According to an article by People, the 12-time Grammy winner first met the ‘Twilight’ actor on the set of their rom-com film, ‘Valentine’s Day’. They were cast as high school sweethearts and eventually became a real couple off-screen. Notably, the film generated a massive profit of a whopping $216.5 million at the box office from a $52 million budget.
The duo then publicly made an appearance together at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards. This was also the same event when the 19-year-old singer was interrupted by Kanye West while accepting her award. Lautner was present on the stage and later revealed that he thought this whole thing to be a ‘skit’. Notably, he recently made an on-stage appearance on TayTay’s Eras Tour, which was held at Arrowhead Stadium.
Lautner is now happily married to Tay and has chosen to step away from the spotlight to enjoy a quieter life. Moreover, his mental health initiative, The Lemons Foundation, has gained significant popularity among fans.
