Dylan O'Brien is forever beloved for his role as the awkward yet super sweet Stiles on Teen Wolf and fans of the show are fully aware they waited many seasons for the character to finally get a love interest. In real life though, Dylan has happily been dating actress Britt Robertson for actual years and yes, the low-key couple is still going strong to this day.
The pair met in 2012 when they co-starred in the movie, The First Time. Their characters fall for each other during the course of the film and the pair ended up doing the same off-screen too. Although they're super quiet when it comes to their relationship, Dylan just recently opened up about how Britt was really there for him while he recovered from his severe on-set accident he suffered while filming a stunt for The Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
"My parents and my girlfriend were by my side the whole way. My girlfriend was with me every step of the way, even in my hospital bed, she’s a saint. She also got up to Canada so quickly, I didn’t know that was possible and was there one of the first times I opened my eyes," Dylan said to People.
Umm, excuse us while we sob over here. If that's not true love, don't know what is then!
Well besides the movie that brought them together, they've since kept work and their relationship very separate. During their five-year-long romance, the couple has given us breadcrumbs of info when it comes to their life together and hey, we get it. Their personal lives are personal so we don't need to know every little detail, and we most like won't ever see any sort of romantic on-set visit pics either. Britt admitted the one thing they hate the most is seeing each other at work.
"He hates it when I’m on set when he’s working and vice versa. I hate when he’s on set watching me work. I think it’s because we’re both actors and very aware of the process. A big part of the job is disconnecting from the people watching and the masses of crews," Britt said in an interview. "I think it makes sense that we’re a little shy and sensitive about working in front of our significant others. To me it makes sense. It’s nice that we both don’t like it. When I go visit him I don’t even go on set. And, when he visits me it’s very rare that I’ll go on set."
So looks like making another movie together most likely isn't going to happen, since this is something Dylan agrees with.
"Yeah, you get nervous. It's a very cute, endearing thing I guess that we're shy about what the other one thinks because we love [these movies] and we want them to, I don't know, it's funny. I get nervous with her on set because I think the world of her as an actress too, not just as my girlfriend, she's also a fantastic actress. So you're kind of just shy, you get butterflies. It's sweet," he said.
Britt spilled about the first time she and Dyl had a kissing scene together when they filmed The First Time and sparks didn't initially fly like you would've thought since they have such great chemistry in the movie.
"We ended up filming it again the next day. Maybe I was just so nervous that I wasn't in the moment and it just didn't feel right, but we fimed it again and we got it right eventually. And then we just got really good at kissing and it was just uphill from there," Britt joked. Perhaps she was so nervious because she was crushing on Dylan and he wasn't yet her BF. Now that is adorable!
Since they're both actors, they obviously film tons of TV shows and movies where their characters have a love interest. But Britt explained in an interview that it's all just part of the job and she wasn't even bothered by the fact that her real life best friend Shelley Henning played Dylan's girlfriend on Teen Wolf!
"It's just a part of our life, he's on a televison show and his love interest on that show is one of my best friends, she's my roommate so we're kind of used to it. It's all acting, we just try to keep it professional and trust one another," Britt explained. "I've watched with him episodes of Teen Wolf where he's makng out with my best friend. It is funny but it's more of like, 'huh, that's what it would be like to see you cheating on me with my best friend, okay interesting,'" she said.
LOL, now that is proof right there these two are in it for the long haul! Speaking of...
A message appeared on Britt's Instagram account saying "Yes we are officially engaged" and fans were so excited, until they quickly realized she was the victim of a hacker. The post wasn't real and the couple is not engaged, at least not to our knowledge. Let's hope one day!
