Marie Avgeropoulos & Taylor Lautner In Love — Why He’s So Smitten With GF
Once bitten, twice shy! Taylor has spent enough time in the spotlight to know that too much attention can kill a romance — that’s why he’s being extra careful to keep his new love as low-key as possible, a source reveals EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com.
“Marie and Taylor are totally in love. Taylor’s crazy about her, they spend pretty much all their free time together,” the source reveals. “He’s been extremely careful about keeping their relationship out of the spotlight because he’s had problems with that in the past, like when he dated Taylor Swift. He knows that too much attention can ruin even the best relationships so he’s very protective of what he and Marie have.”
So sweet! We love that Taylor is putting his love life first!
Has Taylor Lautner Found His Perfect Match?
When Taylor first started dating Marie, his friends didn’t expect it to be much more than an on-set fling. But Taylor surprised them all by getting serious with Marie, and our source says it’s because they’re totally in sync.
“None of us expected Taylor to get into a serious relationship right now because he’s so focused on his career but Marie really fits him like a glove,” the source reveals. “She’s like the girl version of him — she’s super competitive and a total tomboy and he loves that about her.”
“No matter what he does, she can keep up with him,” the source adds. “She even does martial arts so they train together and practice fight scenes together and then when they’re done working up a sweat, they order a bunch of take-out and chill out. It’s so not glamorous but that’s Taylor’s idea of a perfect date.”
Wow, we think these two sound perfect for each other!
