Actress Meryl Streep and Martin Short’s latest romance rumors have driven fans into a frenzy.
According to reports from local media outlets, people could not help but speak about how they did not see this one coming, despite the famous duo looking too close and cozy for comfort at this year’s mega Golden Globe event.
Fans had even gone to the extent of combining both of their names to get the perfect nickname for the couple. This included some common and popular suggestions like Shreep and Strort. But if you happen to have believed those rumors too, well, we have some not-so-great news for you.
Martin Short, 73, just confirmed that sadly there is no truth to that matter and for that reason, people should not get their hopes too high on the matter.
One rep for that actor who gained massive fame for his role in Father of the Bride added how he and the actress in Devil Wears Prada are just friends and nothing more than that.
The pair have been the center of attention for quite some time now, ever since Sunday, when the awards were first aired.
Fans went wild after the first speculation regarding the matter was rolled out.
They shared their sentiments on the X app and posted with great enthusiasm how they did not see this one coming and were not prepared for it.Others suggested perhaps it was only a rumor but the majority did assume it was real as the scenes and glimpses captured by cameras at the event suggested just that.
The matter gained so much fame in such little time that it led the actor to break his silence and put all rumors to rest, even if that meant disappointing a lot of people along the way.
“Another Hollywood romance bites the dust, oh wait, that’s not the case here!”- one fan chuckled. This is so sad, and nothing can be done about it”- mentioned another.
