Actress Dianna Agron recently appeared on “Watch What Happens Live” with Andy Cohen where she was asked about her friendship with pop star Taylor Swift and if she was aware of fans “shipping” the two of them. Agron’s response blurred the lines between fandom and reality.
The term “shipping” refers to fans wanting two people to enter a romantic relationship. In this case, fans have long speculated about the nature of the friendship between Agron and Swift, and have dubbed the duo “DiTaylor.”
During the interview, Cohen asked Agron if she was aware of the shipping and if there was any truth to it. Agron responded by saying, “I absolutely adore Taylor, she’s one of my dearest friends, and she is just one of the most incredible women I know.”
Agron went on to say, “We laugh, we talk about everything, she’s an amazing confidant, she’s a great listener, and she’s just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.”
While Agron’s response didn’t confirm or deny any romantic relationship between the two, it did reinforce the idea that fans’ perceptions of celebrity relationships can be blurred with reality.
Agron and Swift have been friends for years, and have been photographed together at various events. They even co-starred in the 2010 movie “Valentine’s Day.”
It’s important to remember that celebrities are human beings, and just because fans want them to be in a relationship doesn’t mean that they are. While shipping is a common aspect of fandom culture, it’s important to respect the privacy of those involved.
In the case of Agron and Swift, it’s clear that they share a close friendship, but whether or not it’s anything more than that is ultimately up to them to decide.
