Actor Douglas Booth ignores Taylor Swift's persistent come-ons at a West Hollywood bar.
Taylor Swift, who's made a career out of dating guys then writing songs about them, may have some new material as English actor Douglas Booth gave her the brush off.
Taylor Swift will start the new year in a familiar place: alone. Her latest crush, English actor Douglas Booth, has told pals in London that he’s not interested in the “Mean” singer.
We’re told Swift was in hot pursuit after spotting the 21-year-old “Romeo and Juliet” star at a party at the West Hollywood Soho House in November.
“Taylor kept on making an effort to flirt with Douglas, but he gave her the cold shoulder and was extremely dismissive towards her,” says our insider.
Swift was not taking no for an answer, we hear, and made several attempts to lure Booth in.
“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,” says our snitch.
But it was to no avail. Our spies say Swift looked dejected at his lack of interest and was overheard in the ladies’ room telling Steinfeld about her disappointment.
“Taylor and Hailee were chatting about Douglas while they all touched up their makeup,” says our source. “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.”
Well, something worked. They’ve since been spotted out on a few dates in London, but a friend of Booth tells us he has been scared off.
“Doug is a young guy and is enjoying the single life,” says his pal. “He was quite taken aback about how keen Taylor was. She has been in touch with him, but he just wants to be friends.”Jacked from NY Daily News
