"Romeo and Juliet" Actor Douglas Booth Thinks Taylor is Not So Swift

Her dreams may have been battered again, but we know that Taylor Swift will always make a point of making her failures into utter successes.

The 23-year-old's latest crush, British actor Douglas Booth, told his buddies in London that he is not romantically interested in her.

Taylor reportedly spoted the 21-year-old "Romeo and Juliet" star at a party at the West Hollywood Soho House back in November, and an insider stated that, "Taylor kept on making an effort to flirt with Douglas, but he gave her the cold shoulder and was extremely dismissive towards her."

The source continued, saying, "She would get a drink and then approach him; she would chat with [actress] Hailee Steinfeld and then re-approach him; she was even trying to chat him up near the flowers on display. It was all very funny for those of us watching."

After the rejection, Taylor apparently took refuge in her friend. "Taylor and Hailee were chatting about Douglas while they all touched up their makeup," the source said. "Taylor was whining and complaining about his aloofness toward her. She looked like an animal circling its prey, when she tried to get his attention."

Something must have apparently worked, as the two stars were reportedly seen together on a date or two in London, and Booth's friend said, "Doug is a young guy and is enjoying the single life. He was quite taken aback about how keen Taylor was. She has been in touch with him, but he just wants to be friends." We'll see how it all plays out in the end!
