The Taylor Swift Zac Efron dating rumor has been making the rounds but not all are thrilled about it.
Rumors indicated that Swift is now eyeing the Baywatch actor. The Shake It Off singer has broken up with British actor boyfriend Tom Hiddleston a few weeks ago.
Hollywood Gossip reported that Swift is telling her friends that she wants to hook up with Efron. “[Swift] has been talking about him nonstop since her breakup with Tom… She’s always said she feels a strong connection to Zac, but could never act on it because they’ve always been dating other people.”
Hollywood Life cited a source saying the High School Musical actor might be interested in hanging out with Swift, too. The insider said the actor has let his friends know that he is interested to get to know Swift more. Apparently, Efron also thinks Swift is sexy and he is curious what it would be like to have the singer as a girlfriend. However, the site also noted in a separate report that Efron also has his apprehension that getting into a high-profile relationship might derail his acting career.
This is not the first time Swift and Efron have been rumored to be dating. They were seen together at public events several times over the years. The two worked together in the animated movie The Lorax. In 2012, the Baywatch star appeared with the Bad Blood singer on The Ellen Showwhere they played an original guitar duet together.
Efron dated designer Sami Miro for two years before they broke up.

Should rumors prove to be true, it seems Swift is not against publicity after all. It was earlier reported that the reason for the Swift-Hiddleston split was too much publicity. The singer allegedly does not agree with the actor’s suggestion to make their relationship more public.
