Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend from 2009 (the one she wrote one of her nicer songs about (opens in new tab) because she was "careless" to him (opens in new tab)) is currently doing press for Scream Queens. He's been asked about Swift twice so far, both times by his costars, the most effective journalists of all.
It started with John Stamos putting him on the spot with Entertainment Tonight (opens in new tab):
Stamos: What was that [dating Swift] like?
Lautner: It was a good time. It was a fun few months there...
But the second interrogation, by Lea Michele during their Facebook Live (opens in new tab), was much more in-depth and entertaining. Lautner tried really hard to dodge her questions; Michele wouldn't let him.
It starts at the 9:20 mark, and it is amazing:
The best bit of their conversation:
Michele: You dated Taylor Swift. I remember that.
Lautner: That's hilarious.
Michele: Should we talk about it?
Lautner: No! I don't know why you guys want to talk about it.
Michele: Didn't she write a song about you?
Lautner: That's what she does. She writes songs.
Michele tries to prod which song ("Something about, 'If I would have known / I wouldn't have done that / I'll make you a hat.'") Lautner says Swift made him no hat and reluctantly confirms that yes, "Back to December" is about him.
Michele: Am I [crazy]? Fans, people, help me! There's something about a hat. Right?
Lautner: If there is, I feel bad.
Michele: It's like your hat...in December!
Lautner: It's called 'Back to December.'
Michele: That's right! Yes!
Stamos: Back to Your Hat in December?
Lautner: (laughing) I don't know about the hat.
Stamos: Is it an angry song?
Michele: No, no! It's like, Taylor's the nicest.
Then they start going through Stamos' celeb-filled phone contact list, which is just as crazy a story itself (Ashley Benson is there, for starters.)
