Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner are no longer an item – but the country music sensation still thinks her Valentine’s Day costar is something special.

In Elle magazine’s April issue, Swift is asked who she thinks is hot, and she’s shy about her answer: “Um, well Taylor Lautner.”

The two Taylors casually dated last year before calling it quits in late December. No word, however, on whether Swift will use their time together as fodder for future songs, though she admits her love life often fuels her writing. “A letdown is worth a few songs,” she says. “A heartbreak is worth a few albums.”

Swift, 20, also shares the difficulties that come with her celebrity status. “I’ve had countless opportunities to do some really bad things,” she says. “And then people start combing through everything I do trying to find the next mistake and misperception, which leads to more scrutiny.”

The Nashville darling also admits the constant media spotlight creates extra challenges that she has no control over. “Like, if I go to a bar, even if I’m not drinking, who’s to say that a source isn’t going to say that I was doing something I shouldn’t have been doing?” she continues. “So it’s not only about your own moral compass, but the moral compasses of other people that you don’t know.”
