Eddie Redmayne stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday to chat with Andy Cohen about his newest film, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, but one caller forced him to discuss an entirely different magical creature: Taylor Swift.

“Can you put the rumors to rest: did you ever go out on a date with Taylor Swift?” the fan asked.

“I absolutely can put the rumors to rest,” the Oscar winner said. “I never went out on a date with Taylor Swift.”

Redmayne then went on to explain that he met the singer when she auditioned for Les Miserables. “She was amazing in the audition,” he said. “So we got to sing together, which was a big moment for me. But, no, we never went out.”

The Brit also defended Anne Hathaway, who Cohen mentioned received a lot of “mishegas” after her role in Les Mis.

“I think she’s formidable,” he said. “And I think she was kind of extraordinary in that film.”
