Apparently the internet seems to think Eddie Redmayne used to date Taylor Swift, and he's here to shut those rumors down. Also, by "here," we mean the set of Watch What Happens Live, where Andy Cohen dished real talk like it was his job. Which it is.

"I absolutely can put the rumors to rest," Redmayne said. "I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift. Although, I met Taylor Swift, she auditioned for Les Miserables, and she was amazing in the audition. We got to sing together which was a big moment for me but no, we never went out."

Well, there you have it. Also, in case you're wondering, Swift reportedly auditioned (opens in new tab) for the part of Cosette, which eventually went to Amanda Seyfried.
