21-year-old singer/actress Hailee Steinfeld was spotted with One Direction’s Niall Horan on Saturday night. The two were at a Backstreet Boys show at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. A concert attendee posted videos of them dancing to the BSB hit “I Want it That Way,” with Niall joining A.J. McLean for a quick sing-along. They were seated in a VIP section along with Gwen Stefani. The couple enjoyed a few adult beverages after the show at a nearby nightclub. Drinks, dancing and a serenade from the band who brought you “Quit Playing Games with My Heart?” Sounds like this could be a “thing.”

The pair, who do make quite the cute couple, have been friends for many years. They were recently spotted at the American Music Awards last November and attended a performance of Hamilton on London’s West End together last month. Niall shared a sweet birthday wish for Hailee on Instagram back in December. Are they the kind of best friends that go on to a long-lasting love affair, or is Niall going to end up in the “friend zone?” We will have to wait and see.

Hailee’s keeping mum on the topic. When asked about the rumors that she and Niall were a thing, she told US Magazine, “I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of the day, but I think that sometimes it’s hard for people in general to realize that there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life.” She went on to state, “I’m a very private person”, but in the February issue of Marie Claire, she confessed, “I’m trying to protect myself and have a bit of a guard up, but I also want to fall in love and know why love hurts.”

Hailee recently broke up with her longtime boyfriend Cameron Smoller, and a source told PEOPLE that “She’s not actively pursuing anything.” The source added that “Niall is really into her but she’s unsure if she wants to get into something new right away. They’ve been friends for a long, long time and are very comfortable with each other, but it’s nothing serious right now.” Hey, they’re young, they’re having fun and they got to see Hamilton. Friendships often make for the best romances, so I’m curious to see what happens with these two.

    Cute couple.

  2. Millennial says:

    The BSB show feels showmancy, but these two would be cute together if true.

  3. V4Real says:

    I like his song Slow Hands but my fav 1D’s are Zayn and Liam. Hailee is cute AF.

  4. BendyWendy says:

    This is the second photo of her in nearly a month in which she’s completely unrecognizable to me. Maybe my eyes are getting old.

    • Kezia says:

      It’s not your eyes, she’s had A LOT of work done. Check out her recent before and after on beauty editor

  5. smcollins says:

    Seems like a cute pairing if true. I’ve been sort of following her career since True Grit (she’s phenomenal in that), and want good things for her. She seems to have a good head on her shoulders.

    Completely off topic, but can anyone tell me how to add an avatar? I’d like to use one and for the life of me can not figure out how! 🤦‍♀️

    • BendyWendy says:

      I have no idea! I’m trying to figure out how to get mine to go away!

    • Erinn says:

      You have to go to the gravatar website. I believe it’s linked to your email – can’t remember if it’s linked to a wordpres account or what – but there should be a link at the bottom of the page (just above the comment form) that has a blurb about going to gravatar to set it up.

    she’s struggled in the past, and before her PP movies, gave off a thirstyAF vibe. She was competing with the Selena Gomez’s and miley’s of the industry. It really wasnt a contest though. She had bad style with her embarrassing vagina outfits

    Looks like after PP she’s gotten more coverage and exposure, which is great! I still believe this is a contract coupling, but don’t mind.

  7. Hazel says:

    I don’t follow her and was surprised about her “new look”. Whether it’s a new makeup artist or work done, she is very pretty.

  8. Patricia says:

    I like their vibe. As someone who fell in love with my best friend after ten fabulous, fun years of best-friending, I’m all for this kind of relationship.

  9. sesame says:

    Niall has had such a glow-up since the 1D days. He’s looking mega hot! Brunette suits him good.

  10. Lizzie says:

    both are super cute. go for it!

  11. Electra says:

    What an incredibly good looking girl.

  12. Bridget says:

    I want to like her, but she was SO bad in the Pitch Perfect movies. Everything grinds to a halt when she’s onscreen.

    • sesame says:

      Yeah, given how much I loved her perf in True Grit, I was surprised at how much she stuck out like a sore thumb but in fairness, PP2 was utter horrid dredge (I loved the first one though).

      • anna222 says:

        Check out Edge of Seventeen, she is great in it and Woody is hilarious too. In saying that her music is irritating AF.

  13. Happy21 says:

    I don’t know that she’s had a ton of work done. She has had work to her nose over the years that I know. I remember seeing her in True Grit and thinking to myself that she’d be getting an NJ (nose job) before too long if she wanted to continue to act. Besides the NJ I don’t know what else I’d say she’s done…
