Nina Dobrev has been dating actor Glen Powell since January

Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev is once again dating a fellow actor. The 28-year-old actress is seeing Glen Powell, who is probably best known (well, to me at least) as obnoxiously preppy Chad Radwell on the now-cancelled Ryan Murphy horror anthology series Scream Queens. Glen also starred in Richard Linklater’s unofficial sequel to Dazed and Confused, the underrated Everybody Wants Some. The 28-year-old actor has also appeared in Hidden Figures and The Expendables 3.

The couple have been rumored to have been an item since January, bringing into question reports that linked Nina with Orlando Bloom back in April. Before that, Nina dated actor Austin Stowell. Glenn has been seen at events including the premiere of xXx: The Return of Xander Cage, in which Nina played a weapons specialist, as well as her La La Land-themed birthday party, where the two recreated one of the film’s iconic dance scenes.

The relationship was “outed” when the pair attended Julianne Hough’s wedding to hockey player Brooks Laich this past weekend, where Nina served as a bridesmaid. The two were spotted cavorting in the water the day before the ceremony during a wedding weekend beach day on the lake at Idaho’s Coeur d’Alene Resort. And, during the wedding reception on Saturday, Nina and Glen joined fellow guests, Dancing with the Stars performers Derek Hough and Hayley Erbert, to make memories in a photo booth.

If this photographic evidence isn’t enough, a source tells E! News that “Nina and Glen are dating. They were friends and it turned into something more a little while ago. They like each other and are seeing where it goes. Nina was just in a serious relationship so she’s being careful, but Glen is the best to her and treats her so well.”

I think they make a cute couple. Glen was easily one of the best things about Scream Queens (even though I realize that isn’t saying much) and Nina seems like a cool chick, so it they may have the potential for a true love connection.

    Headline is confusing. I was trying to figure out who “actor Chad Radwell” is.

    • Lexilla says:

      Me too! I was thinking, Is this another Ned Rocknroll situation? Because if so, Nina girl, run.

    • DesertReal says:

      Then when I saw he was just a younger and less attractive James Tupper, I just shrugged.
      Get your milquetoast on girl!

    • Celebitchy says:

      I screwed this up as I changed the headline for Corey to add the actor’s name. I know this guy from Hidden Figures, where he played John Glenn, so I think that’s why I assumed his name couldn’t also be Glen. I needed to double check and I didn’t.

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        Hey it happens and Wednesdays are tough! I’m struggling so much this morning that I re-read the article then did a google search to make sure his name wasn’t Radwell (brain was refusing to read the words Corey wrote so well, d’oh).

        Making my way to the coffeehouse for coffee. All the coffee.

    Is he short…he looks short, but it’s hard to tell.

    Yeah, she ain’t cool. She was one of the Halloween crew when that idiot Hough went out in blackface. Between that and a LLL themed party, they need to be finishing high school.

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      Sorry I’m clueless, what’s an LLL party?

    • Ripley says:

      Yikes. I didnt realize she did black face too.

      • Goats on the Roof says:

        I’m pretty sure Nina never did blackface. She was out with JH when she did it, and since we don’t forgive people or allow them the opportunity to learn and grow around these parts, that means she’s gotta be raked over the coals too.

  4. Ripley says:

    I weirdly love her and thought he was lovely in Hidden Figures (only exposure to his acting). Hope these crazy kids make it work… Anyone else think she looks like a brunette Amy Poehler in that lime green coat?

  5. Kate says:

    All I know is he played John Glenn in Hidden Figures and I am a forever fangirl of our dear, departed John Glenn. What a guy.

  6. bonobochick says:

    I only know him from “Hidden Figures.”

    Mazel tov to them.
