    There were rumors, though, that he was dating Amanda Seyfried back in 2013, when they were costars in The Big Wedding. His mom happens to be a relationship therapist, which doesn't really pertain to him but probably means he has a healthy outlook on life.

    15. He's also best friends with Julianne Hough, which is cool.

    16. Overall, he continues to remain mysterious. Nobody knows that much about his personal life...which is intriguing.
