These stars gave Cupid a run for his money.
Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are best pals and best wing men and women. They hang out together, they duet together, they write songs and tour together, and they give one another advice on dating, relationships, tuning guitars and everything in-between. Aside from helping one another compose hits that end up being grossly overplayed on Top 40 radio, Sheeran and Swift each have also helped each other find love (or at least lust) more than once, and Sheeran recently revealed he'd like to set Swift up with another famous pal of his: Divorced dad and The Hobbit star Orlando Bloom.
Yes, the same Orlando Bloom who was involved in a rumored bizarre love quadrilateral with his own ex-wife Miranda Kerr, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez.
Sheeran told Now magazine of the onscreen elf and country-crooner-turned-pop princess, "[Bloom is] lovely, and they live in the same building. [I'm hoping that] the magic might present itself eventually."
To celebrate the platonic BFFship and match making skills of Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, here are 14 stars who've played Cupid for their pals.
