Swifties have no problem going “Back to December,” as Taylor Lautner has been deemed Taylor Swift’s “best ex” by the pop superstar’s fans.
“[That] sounds like a nice compliment to me,” the actor told People on Sunday (Nov. 12) at The Lemons Foundation 1st Charity Gala in response. “I will take it.”
Lautner added that his wife, Tay (yes, they’re both named Taylor Lautner), is a Swiftie herself. “She let me know that I’m the only ex without a diss track now,” he added. “So that sounds like a nice thing. I’ll take it and run. No complaints here.”
Swift and Lautner dated back in 2009 after meeting on the set of Valentine’s Day, and it is rumored that her Speak Now hit, “Back to December,” is about their breakup.
Back in July, Swift debuted the first music video from her Speak Now (Taylor’s Version) album at the first Eras Tour stop in Kansas City, Missouri. The Twilight actor, Joey King and Presley Cash, who all starred in the video, also joined the singer onstage to celebrate the video’s premiere.
“She deserves everything that she is getting and going through right now because she’s the hardest-working person,” Lautner continued to People. “And just being at the pinnacle that she’s at right now, the way that she carries herself and is just so gracious and kind to absolutely everyone, no matter who you are, it speaks to her character. And that’s the greatest part about her in my opinion.”
