Who's Lucy Hale Dated? We're Sorry to Say the List Doesn't Include Ezra Fitz
You may know Lucy Hale best as Aria Montgomery, but here’s what we’re wondering: who has been lucky enough to call the 31-year-old their girlfriend? While the actress has had some memorable onscreen romances, including on Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars and The CW’s Katy Keene, she’s had some just-as-memorable offscreen romances over the years. Most recently, she has been linked to fellow Archieverse star Skeet Ulrich, who famously played Jughead’s dad on Riverdale. As we learn more about their blossoming romance, let’s take a walk down memory lane and see who else has romanced the star in the past.
Though David Henrie was once rumoured to be romancing his onscreen sister Selena Gomez, the Wizards of Waverly Place actor was actually dating Lucy, who guest-starred on the series in 2007 as David’s love interest, Miranda. The pair dated for over two years, but when asked by J-14 back in 2014 if he would ever get back together with Lucy, David suggested that their relationship was purely platonic after their breakup. “No, we’re friends. We’re just buddies now,” he said, so it seems as though they ended on good terms.
Soon after the premiere of Pretty Little Liars, Lucy sparked dating rumours with The Cab keyboard player Alex Marshall. Lucy seemingly confirmed the relationship when she tweeted, “He bought me a rose,” alongside a picture of the two of them in October 2010, but the two only lasted for a few months after that before going their separate ways.
After Alex, Lucy dated Amazing Spider-Man actor Chris Zylka for about nine months before some cryptic tweets from Chris suggested that the two were done. The duo first met at New Year’s Eve party, but when a fan tweeted at Chris that his “girlfriend is gorgeous” in September 2012, Chris replied, “Don’t have a girlfriend. She decided she was too good.”
Chris later apologised in a series of tweets. “I’d like to apologise about my previous comments,” he said. “Lucy is not only one of the most talented people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, but also one the most beautiful, inside and out. Anyone who’s ever watched, or had the pleasure of meeting her, knows this to be true.”
Lucy was rumoured to have dated actor Graham Rogers for three months before they broke up in September 2013. The actress first confirmed their relationship to Us Weekly in June 2013, telling them, “He is such a sweetheart. We are having a good time.” The couple even went on a romantic trip to Hawaii together that July before splitting two months later.
In 2014, Lucy dated country singer Joel Crouse for a few months. The couple were first spotted together in April 2014 at a Lakers Game, where Lucy shared an Instagram pic of the two captioned, “First lakers game. Was really great teaching this one the rules of the game. And seeing him looking like a kid in a candy store @joelcrouse.” The pair split in June, and a source alleged to Us Weekly that it was due to the distance and Lucy’s work demands.
Another past flame for Lucy includes Lawson drummer Adam Pitts, whom she was first seen in public in September 2014 while the two held hands and shopped together in Beverly Hills. Though no breakup was ever announced, the last public sighting for the two was in March 2015.
After Adam, Lucy was in a two-year relationship with musician Anthony Kalabretta. When asked about the relationship by People back in September 2016, Lucy had nothing but good things to say, despite some rumors of trouble in paradise. “[It’s going] good,” she said. “He’s great.”
However, the May 2017 breakup may not have been quite so amicable, as they unfollowed each other on social media and deleted several of their Instagram pics together following the split. Then, just a month after their reported breakup, Lucy tweeted a photo of the two of them in front of a helicopter, so it seems things are cool between them, even if they didn’t decide to rekindle their romance.
Lucy and her ex Riley Smith reportedly only dated for a few months before their June 2018 split. The Life Sentence costars were first spotted kissing on Valentine’s Day in 2018, according to Us Weekly, but a source confirmed to Us Weekly that the two had decided to go their separate ways soon after it was announced that Life Sentence wouldn’t be returning for a second season.
Lucy briefly ignited new dating rumors when she was seen holding hands with actor Ryan Rottman, but little more was heard about the potential couple after that initial sighting.
Lucy was briefly linked to the Bachelor star in July 2020, shortly after Colton’s split from Cassie Randolph. At the time, E! News reported that Colton and Lucy went on a couple of “casual dates,” but nothing was serious.
