Are Hailee Steinfeld and Josh Allen Dating?
While the duo has yet to reveal the nature of their relationship publicly, it appears that they’re more than friends. They were “hanging out for a few weeks,” a source told People in May 2023, noting that the romance is “new, but they are having fun.”
Josh was the first to address the relationship speculation in July 2023, referring to their now-viral kissing photos.
“The fact that anybody cares about that still blows my mind,” he shared on the “Pardon My Take” podcast. “I just, like, felt this gross feeling. Insecurity. No privacy. [I was] like, ‘What is wrong with people?’”
Reps for Hailee and Josh did not respond to J-14‘s request for comment about their relationship.
Who Has Hailee Steinfeld Dated in the Past?
Prior to the Josh romance rumors, Hailee was in a long-term romance with Niall Horan after they met in late 2017.
“I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of every 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,” Hailee told Us Weekly in January 2018 when asked about the rumored romance. “I am a very private person. I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I’m comfortable with and they’re there to listen and support me.”
While they were together, the couple stayed tight-lipped. However, they called it quits by December 2018.
When it comes to her love life overall, Hailee was “very focused on myself and couldn’t be happier about it,” while chatting with Cosmopolitan in November 2021. “I have moments where I’m like, ‘All my friends are engaged, married, dating.’ What a wonderful thing that seems like, right?” she added. “I really don’t ever have moments of, ‘Oh God, I feel so single,’ but it is funny how in the past year or so, a lot of people have gotten engaged or married. I’m like, ‘Everybody’s gotta slow down for me, OK?'”
