Zach Braff says he never dated Taylor Swift — despite rumors — and talks about why he tries to avoid having famous girlfriends in a revealing interview on Monday’s “The Howard Stern Show.”


The actor-director describes Swift as a “sweet girl” he’s met a couple times, but calls reports that they were in a relationship “Internet bullsh*t.”

In fact, says Braff, he’s tried to avoid high-profile romances since dating Mandy Moore.

He tells Stern, “When you date another famous person, that’s when they really hound you,” describing how paparazzi attention becomes unbearable when two stars date.

“They follow you everywhere you go,” explains Braff.

He then describes what it was like to see his pal Harry Styles at the Sundance Film Festival.

“This kid, he’s the sweetest kid, he can’t walk two f*cking feet, or a crowd forms and paparazzi forms… it’s an existence who the hell would want?” asks Braff.
