But does he have at type? We hear he thinks blonds have more fun… “I don’t have a type. It all depends on who she is. I really don’t care. If the chemistry is there or not, I don’t care if she’s blond or dark. I don’t care who she is.”

WSJ. MagazineANNEMARIEKE VAN DRIMMELEN The Emmy winner isn’t necessarily ready to be tied down as his career keeps getting busier and busier, but he does hope he finds the one someday. “I really enjoy the adventure of traveling, meeting new people and working a lot. Hopefully one day I’ll settle down,” he says.

There’s not a single young girl that I know in Hollywood that I have not been paired with. But that’s what happens if I get into a taxi with a girl, suddenly we’re married.

Take Taylor Swift off. She never dated him or Twaites. They all did a movie together and her small role was with Bridges. Why do people like to lie about who Swift dated?

I think he's great guy, anyway very good actor.

All those girls are JUST RUMOURS non of them nor him have come out and said they have dated him EXCEPT for big mouth amanda seyfried and she only said they 'dated' which means nothing really. as for the others kbosworth ,etc as far as i know they where only pushed together for film promotion they both have the same agent and whether the actors like it or not the people in higher power will manipulate situations for the gossip media making it appear the two actors are in a relationship. he has said he isvery private so it makes sence that his real life relationship is one that will never be put onfor public display.
