Twitter doesn't love this pairing

Sydney Sweeney is a star on the rise. After breaking out, and stripping down, in Euphoria, the 25-year-old actress gained further acclaim for her role as spoiled teen Olivia in season 1 of The White Lotus. This year alone, she will appear as government leaker Reality Winner in Reality and in Tony Tost's crime drama Americana. Next year, she is set to join the Sony Spiderverse as Spider-Woman in Madame Web.

Glen Powell is also something of a new face on the scene. His big breakout came as astronaut John Glenn in 2016's Hidden Figures. He has since appeared in war drama The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society and rom-com Set It Up. He recently appear in Top Gun: Maverick and Korean War drama Devotion.

Dating Rumors Swirl But Not Everyone's Happy

Rumors have circulated about Sweeney and Powell since Powell began posting pictures of the pair on set. They are currently filming Anyone But You, an R-rated rom-com from Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits). Little is known about the film, which does not yet have a release date. But the leads having been having a lot of fun. According to Powell's Instagram, they goof around on set and even go to the zoo together. This has of course spawned the usual "link up" rumors. But there are some big obstacles to this potentially fledgling romance.

There's just one problem. Powell has, or had, a girlfriend - model and actress Gigi Paris. The couple's "debut" at CinemaCon was underscored by Paris unfollowing both of them on social media. She then posted a cryptic message on Instagram, “Know your worth and onto the next." A source informed People that Paris and Powell had been broken up for several weeks. The other problem is that Sweeney is engaged to a man Vox describes as a "vape design businessman". So if the two have been seeing each other romantically, there are a lot of broken hearts involved. Neither has confirmed a romance but social media has been having fun with the idea of the jilting lovers getting their comeuppance. Do you think they are dating? If they are, you know HotNewHipHop will have all the details.
