Taylor Swift & Joe Alwyn went on a double-date with Robert Pattinson & Suki

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse enjoy a rare night out at Chiltern Firehouse in London

I have to keep reminding myself that Robert Pattinson has a girlfriend. My problem is that I just find Suki Waterhouse so… unmemorable. She seems like a perfectly nice person and she has that cute budget-Bardot look for a model, but I still can’t believe she and Rob are happening. Maybe he just felt like going for less drama, less angst, someone whose name he might forget. So, yes, Rob and Suki are happening. And Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn are happening. So why not a double date? But why? Because British peeps, I guess.

Double trouble! Taylor Swift and Joe Alwyn may keep their romance super-secret, but that doesn’t mean they don’t enjoy a date night — with a couple of famous friends! The pair stepped out for dinner with Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse on Saturday, June 1, an onlooker exclusively reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly.

The foursome were spotted at San Vicente Bungalows in Hollywood where they “were laughing and talking” all night, says the eyewitness. “They were at a table, just the four of them. Rob and Taylor were across from each other.”

Date nights for Swift, 29, and Alwyn, 28, could even become more frequent. Despite their low-key relationship, the “Me!” singer “has become more comfortable being out” with the British actor, a source tells Us.

Pattinson, 33, and Waterhouse, 27, for their part, have kept most their romance under wraps. While the couple were spotted packing on the PDA in August 2018, a source confirmed to Us at the time that the pair “have been dating for months.” They have “known each other and been around each other for a long time,” the source told Us, noting that they “definitely have a love of music in common.”

They “definitely have a love of music in common.” That’s how you describe why you’re into your middle school boyfriend when you’re 13. WE LIKE THE SAME MUSIC! Gawd, you just don’t understand! BTS speaks to our SOULS! As for the double date… I’m sure someone will tell me that of course Joe knows Suki or Joe knows Rob or Rob knows Taylor, but quite honestly, I just believe that every British actor knows each other. Judi Dench knows Clive Owen, Clive knows Robert Pattinson, Rob knows Benedict Cumberbatch, etc. Taylor’s probably part of the British acting crew now because she filmed Cats in London. So there you go. The better question is: what did they talk about? Music? LOL. Also: Rob is seriously good friends with Katy Perry, so as always, another layer of drama, even though Katy and Taylor have buried the hatchet.

    You know, I don’t hear about a lot of celebrity double dates (captured by papparazzi) these days. Racking my brains to think of any. Like, Clooney et al, but that hasn’t happened recently. It seems like one of those normal people things that celebrities just don’t do.

    I wonder who is friends with whom, or what the PR angle is, to get this set up.

    So, yay for them I guess! :-)

    Suki Waterhouse is squad-adjacent. Taylor and suki know each other through various model friends.
    Don’t know about rob and joe but wouldn’t shock me if they also run in the same wider social circles as you mentioned with the British actors.

    • waitwhat says:

      Just stopped by to say the same. She was partying with Tay-Tay post Hiddleswift.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Oh yeah the Taylor plus models squad. I agree with this, ignore my tin foil hat theory below! LOL.

  3. Guest says:

    Now that robs back on the front page and is batman I have a feeling suki isn’t going anywhere.

  4. no no says:

    It is her PR. Tay Tay had concert at that time, so it is imposible for them to have this date.

    She will do everything to stay relevant – when Game of thrones was aired, she claimed that Rep was about Aria etc (it was a lie, that even her fans noticed). Then she is a gay icon now (I bet her next single is some LGBT athrem with cats). Now Rob is new Batman so she needs to use it for her PR. I call it aanother PR lie. Not first and last this year – she needs to sell this Cats awful movie.

    • Belinda says:

      This is also my observation. She has always gone for the “hot new ticket”. She went after Harry Styles at the height of the One Direction hype. She went after Tom Hiddleston when he was on top of the world etc etc
      Now of course she hangs out with THE actor who is THE discussion piece of the moment – the new Batman … it was kind of predictable in a way …
      But since her music doesn’t really cut it anymore, all her PR just become more visible, is much too obvious for my taste …

      • So cool says:

        Forgot – Joe Jonas. Suddenly she is talking only about him after all this years,vehen his wedding us a top gossip. All is such convinient – Ellen is asking her about him, by accident TaTay is on the same show as Sophie Turner. Well no one give a s*it’s about her boyfriend and RS so she needs to bring exes.
        Also this poor cats – she get this new one only ad a part of her PR for the Cats movie. She started selling stuff with her cats on it, just when she was announced in this movie.

    Suki is so mayonnaise amongst RPatz”s girlfriends and really wished Mia Wa(I can’t remember her name) worked out! She had personality And then some. I can just imagine the convo during this double date…snooze fest or each describing how hard it is to be an artiste these days! Ps I like Robert so hoping it was just to pass time

  6. Original T.C. says:

    Or *putting on my tin foil hat* this is the start of the publicity tour for the Batman female audience. Getting Pattinson back in the tabloids and talked about. Not necessarily by him but leaked by someone working on the film. Since the announcement of him as Batman was mainly met with a shrug. The director of Bateman even has a short video of Patttinson in another film to prove that he can act. Super fanboys on YouTube are spreading interviews where he trashtalks twilight to prove he’s cool. For someone who hates the media, signing up for a mega spotlight role is odd but he knows the deal by now.

    • Guest says:

      The announcement of him as batman was met with a shrug? He trended on Twitter for the entire day with people reactions being yay, no or meh.

  7. Why? says:

    Joe has a that seemingly looks babyish but old/saggy at the same time.

    i’ve never understood someone’s fame less than suki waterhouse.
