Taylor Swift and Zac Efron reportedly enjoyed a flirty dinner date in Los Angeles earlier this month.
The 'Safe and Sound' hitmaker and the 'New Year's Eve' star - who have been friends for years - were spotted sharing a romantic corner table at Los Angeles restaurant place earlier this month.
A source told US Weekly the pair - who arrived together in Zac's Audi -"were deep in conversation and very giggly".
However, friends of Zac, 24, and 22-year-old Taylor claimed the 'Lorax' co-stars were just enjoying a friendly night out.
One pal said: "They were in L.A. doing press stuff together, and after they were done, they decided to grab dinner."
Another friend added: "They have been friends a long time. Taylor thinks Zac's cute...[but] they are on totally different wavelengths."
Speaking about her forthcoming album, Taylor alluded to their short lived relationship.
She said: "There's just been this earth-shattering, not recent, but absolute crash-and-burn heartbreak and that will turn out to be what the next album is about.
"The only way that I can feel better about myself - pull myself out of that awful pain of losing someone - is writing songs about it to get some sort of clarity."
