Cory Monteith Denies Romance with 'Lovely' Taylor Swift

Dropping by for an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime show, the Glee star refuses to admit he's seeing the country singer

Sorry, all you fans hoping that the Cory Monteith-Taylor Swift rumors were true -- there's no "Love Story" between the two just yet. The Glee star, recently linked to the Grammy-winning singer, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show and took time to clear up speculation about his love life.

Monteith, 28, made an earnest attempt at an age-old denial, telling DeGeneres on her show (airing Tuesday), "I don't know where the time is to date these days." And, to be fair, between a hit series, an upcoming tour and countless media appearances, Monteith is a busy guy, indeed. 

Nevertheless, DeGeneres wouldn't let Monteith's "We're just friends" routine slide, according to US Weekly. She showed a photo of the two looking rather cozy, after which Monteith responded vaguely, "It's cute. She's lovely." 

DeGeneres then joked that they were both lovely people and he should "think about it" because they'd make "a cute couple." We're with Ellen on this one, Cory! (Plus, think of the possibilities if the incredibly talented and generous Swift, 20, were to make a Glee cameo!)

But Monteith isn't the only Glee star whose personal life has been stirring up headlines lately: his onscreen love interest, Lea Michele, was spotted, all dolled up with a date, at Time magazine's recent "Most Influential 100" gala -- where she sassed a renowned photographer about what her real name was, and had to sheepishly apologize via Twitter. As the Fox hit series gains popularity by the second, the scrutiny bearing down on the cast is certainly intensifying, as well!
