Lautner opened up about the song during a Facebook chat with Scream Queens co-stars Lea Michele and John Stamos.
Stamos brought up Taylor’s dating history. Lea pried the information out of him, in a cute and giggly way, of course.
Lautner seemed clearly embarrassed by the conversation. Still, he was a good sport and spilled some of the beans.
“You dated Taylor Swift, I remember that,” Lea cooed around the 9:09 mark in the video below.
“That’s hilarious,” Lautner replied.
“Should we talk about it?” Michele countered.
“Noooo,” said Lautner. But that didn’t stop Michele from pressing for dish.
“Didn’t she write a song about you?” the former Glee star asked with astonishment. “That’s so…. she added before her voice trailed off.
Swift has long been known to use her personal experiences as the basis for many of her songs.
Naturally, many songs have been inspired by her loves and losses. She steadfastly refuses to reveal exactly who inspired what song.
At the same time, most songs include subtle clues. As in:
I miss your tan skin, your sweet smile, so good to me, so right
And how you held me in your arms that September night
The first time you ever saw me cry,
Maybe this is wishful thinking
Probably mindless dreaming
But if we loved again, I swear I’d love you right
Still, she’s had enough boyfriends to keep fans guessing.
Swift wrote the song in 2010 and it appeared on her third studio album, Speak Now. The song, not surprisingly, was about the aftermath of a break-up with her boyfriend.
“This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him,” Swift said at the time.
The country star and Lautner broke up in December of 2009 after a short romance. Both appeared in the 2010 film “Valentine’s Day, and they remain friends.
