Taylor Swift and Zac Efron were spotted enjoying a flirty dinner date in Los Angeles.
The songstress and the 'New Year's Eve' star have been friends for years and a source told US Weekly that the pair - who arrived together in Zac's Audi - "were deep in conversation and very giggly".
However according to friends of Zac, 24, and Taylor, 22, the Lorax co-stars were just enjoying a friendly night out. One pal said, "They were in L.A. doing press stuff together, and after they were done, they decided to grab dinner." Another friend added that "they have been friends for a long time. Taylor thinks Zac's cute...[but] they are on totally different wavelengths."
Zac previously dated his 'High School Musical' co - star Vanessa Hudgens while Taylor has endured a string of heartbreaks, most recently being her breakup with Jake Gyllenhaal in late 2010. Speaking about her forthcoming album, Taylor alluded to their short - lived relationship.
She said, "There's just been this earth - shattering, not recent, but absolute crash - and - burn heartbreak and that will turn out to be what the next album is about. "The only way that I can feel better about myself, pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone, is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity."
