Are Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell Dating? Let’s Break Down the Rumors
Celebrity watchers everywhere are talking about what’s going on between actors Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney. Powell, 34, and Sweeney, 25, recently finished filming their upcoming rom-com “Anyone But You.” While the duo were on set in Australia, they shared lots of photos where they seemed super close. Soon enough, rumors started to spread that there pair had become involved on set, despite the fact that Sweeney is engaged and Powell is also in a relationship. The duo also appeared at CinemaCon on April 25 to support their new film, and they were both glowing together on the red carpet. Here’s what we know about Powell and Sweeney’s romance rumors.
TMZ reported on April 25 that Powell’s girlfriend, Gigi Paris, had unfollowed Sweeney on Instagram (though she still follows Powell). Paris, 30, and Powell were first linked in January 2020. TMZ followed that report up with another that Sweeney and Powell are not dating and Sweeney is still engaged to Jonathan Davino, 38, who works in the restaurant industry. A source added that Sweeney and Powell’s flirty vibes are “tied to the rom-com.” Reps for Powell and Sweeney did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment.
Powell first attracted fans when he starred in the 2018 rom-com “Set It Up,” and he appeared in 2022’s “Top Gun: Maverick.” Meanwhile Sweeney broke out in “Euphoria” and season one of “White Lotus.” Their new movie, “Anyone But You,” is an updated version of Shakespeare’s enemies-to-lovers classic “Much Ado About Nothing,” in which Sweeney and Powell play college rivals who reunite at a friend’s destination wedding, and sparks fly. The movie is directed by Will Gluck, who helmed “Easy A” and “Friends With Benefits.” At CinemaCon, Powell said of the movie, “Sydney plays a character [who is] a real nightmare,” while Sweeney called his character, “an assh*le,” per People. “And what better place to put a nightmare and an assh*le than on the other side of the world in the most romantic setting imaginable?” Powell added.
So is there off-the-charts chemistry just marketing for the film? It would not be the first time. For example, many fans were convinced Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga were in love during the promotion of 2018’s “A Star Is Born,” but the pair were never romantically attached. But of course there are lots of couples who did meet on set and are still going strong. For now, it seems Sweeney and Powell are just marketing their rom-com (and it’s definitely working).
