Actor Zach Braff has denied rumors he’s dating Taylor Swift, insisting he has sworn off dating “super-famous girls” after becoming a tabloid target while romancing singer/actress Mandy Moore.

Speculation recently surfaced that the former “Scrubs” star and the serial celebrity dater had become an item, but Braff quickly shot down the story.

Calling the “Love Story” singer “a sweet girl” the actor explained he has only met Swift twice and romance reports are nothing but “Internet (expletive)”.

Braff, who recently split from his model girlfriend Taylor Bagley after five years together, revealed he vowed never to date another celebrity after breaking up with “Saved” star Moore in 2006.

“When my relationship with Mandy ended, (my publicist) said, ‘I’m going to give you a hint that you should know. If you don’t date these 25 girls, your life will be so much easier.’ And she was kind of exaggerating because there’s more than those 25 girls, but in so many words, if you can, don’t date other famous people because then all the tabloids pretty much leave you alone.”

He added, “I could walk down the street, I don’t get followed. Well, if you’re going to hook up with a famous girl, that might be fun for your ego, but you don’t want to be out in public dating a famous girl because then they follow you everywhere you go.”

And Braff admitted he’d hate to have pal Harry Styles’ life, adding, “He can’t walk two (expletive) feet or a crowd forms and the paparazzi forms (sic)… He’s the sweetest kid, but I don’t want that existence.”

Ironically, Styles briefly dated Taylor Swift at the end of 2102.
