Although there are a ton of celebrity relationships that have come from two stars working closely together, not every celebrity relationship starts on set. Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell have stirred up a ton of rumors of an on-set romance budding between them during promotion for their romcom, Anyone But You (out December 22), but those are nothing but rumors. Sydney Sweeney has reportedly been in a long term relationship with Jonathan Davino.
Who is Sydney Sweeney's boyfriend, Jonathan Davino?
Despite the fact that he's dating one of Hollywood's rising stars, Jonathan Davino isn't a public figure himself. According to Crain's Chicago Business, Jonathan Davino has owned two pizza restaurants in Chicago, both of which have since closed.
But don't think that means he's some kind of pizza chain heir! In a December 2023 interview with Glamour UK, Sydney Sweeney shut down some of the rumors the two of them have seen about her boyfriend. She said, "He’s not a restaurateur. I have no idea where that came from. He’s also not the heir of a pizza company. He’s a business guy. He’s from Chicago."
"I’ve been in a steady relationship for a really long time, which is not normal in this industry and not normal for my age. What I’ve noticed about the idea of celebrity is people really love to build someone up, and then tear them down."- Sydney Sweeney
According to Sydney Sweeney, a lot of the information online about Jonathan Davino, 38, is totally wrong, just like the claim that he's the heir to a huge pizza chain. She called the fact that there's so much misinformation about her boyfriend on the internet "crazy" and said she thinks that the fact that being a young Hollywood star and being in a steady relationship like she is is so uncommon.
Syndey Sweeney prefers to date out of the spotlight
While speaking to Cosmopolitan, Sydney Sweeney said that she prefers to be "normal Syd" and doesn't like to date anyone famous, which explains why her long time boyfriend, Jonathan Davino, is just a normal guy from the Windy City.
"I don’t date people in the spotlight,” she told Cosmopolitan. “I don’t date actors or musicians or anyone in entertainment because I can just be normal Syd that way."
According to her interview with Glamour UK, the pair have been dating for six years. That means that the pair were already dating prior to Sydney Sweeney really having her massive breakthrough roles in shows like Euphoria and Sharp Objects.
What about Glen Powell?
Glen Powell stars alongside Sydney Sweeney in Anyone But You and the pair have been acting pretty flirty during the press tour to promote the movie. Because of this, they've sparked some pretty crazy rumors about a potential on-set affair budding between the two of them. But is there any truth to the rumors?
According to Sydney Sweeney, the answer is a big no. The actress said in an interview with Variety that all the flirty behavior between the two of them is just for fun and only to promote the movie, nothing serious.
"It’s a rom-com. That’s what people want! Glen and I don’t really care. We have so much fun together, and we respect each other so much; he’s such a hard worker, and I’m a hard worker," she explained when asked if there was anything deeper to the flirting the two of them have been spotted doing while promoting their upcoming movie.
Is Sydney Sweeney engaged?
Sydney Sweeney was spotted out and about in Los Angeles wearing an engagement ring, but does that mean wedding bells are in the near future for the Euphoria actress?
When asked for an update on their wedding plans, Sydney Sweeney kept it coy and gave a simple answer of being busy working and happy to stay busy. Luckily for Jonathan Davino, part of Sydney Sweeney's work involves being by his side as the two of them are partners at her Fifty-Fifty Films production company.
