After watching one of his films, Taylor Swift hand-picked British actor Toby Hemingway to star in the video for her new single, 'Mine,' but has the country sensation chosen the 27-year-old to be her real life love interest?
According to this, Taylor and Toby have been spotted hanging out together in Maine, and the 20-year-old Grammy winner will reportedly bring her new "friend" along to debut 'Mine' on her live video premiere special tonight. It makes total sense for the singer to ask her co-star to join her for the big reveal, but the rumor mill is buzzing about something more than just a professional connection between the stars.
Of course, no one in Taylor's camp is confirming or denying the reports. "We don't comment on Taylor's personal life," her publicist said. Yeah, we've heard that one before.
If Taylor really is dating Toby, their relationship could qualify for "love at first sight" status -- well, at least for the Nashville girl. "I saw 'Feast of Love' and just loved that movie and thought Toby was so great that I thought it would be perfect to put him in the video," she told People.
However, Taylor's lucky number played a part in landing him the role, too. "I was doing some more research and watched another movie he was in called 'The Covenant,'" she added. "I've got this crazy 13 lucky thing, and he walks on screen for the first time wearing a sweatshirt with a 13 on it! That was the deciding factor. It wasn't really up to me, it was about the number."
Maybe her favorite number will make Taylor lucky in love, too! 'Mine' debuts tonight on MTV.com and CMT.com during a premiere special, which begins at 8:30 p.m. ET. Fans can also watch the full video on TV at 9 p.m. ET on MTV and CMT. Will you be tuning in? %Poll-51419%
