John Taylor Smith is easily one of the stars who’ve landed the most roles since the original Hunger Games franchise ended. This includes alongside the Enchanted sequel star Amy Adams in HBO’s highly acclaimed mini-series, Sharp Objects and in executive producer Reese Witherspoon’s Where The Crawdads Sing.
There’s no doubt that fans recognized John and the rest of the cast of Where The Crawdads sing from various other projects including Sharp Objects. But it’s more likely that they’re far more focused on John’s portrayal of Tate Walker. He is, after all, extremely dreamy. In fact, the movie role has made John Taylor Smith something of an international heartthrob. Yet, very little is known about the actor’s real-life romances. Here’s what we do know…

According to Popsugar, John dared fitness model Jamie Villamor for a couple of years. It seems John dated the older woman for over three years as they were first linked together in 2017. Though it’s likely he first started dating her in 2016, according to a comment he made during an interview with Glamour.
Jamie Villamor was with John Taylor Smith when he first started getting major attention for his role in HBO’s Sharp Objects. Following the Los Angeles premiere of the show, Jamie wrote on his Instagram, gushing about how proud she was of him. But Jamie was also with John Taylor Smith during one of the darkest times of his life. Together they were present at the Las Vegas Route 91 Harvest musical festival in October 2017. The event ended early due to a national tragedy that both stars recognized publicly. But Jamie also drew attention to how John physically protected her when the violent crime started.

According to Popsugar, the pair were last seen together publicly at Podwall Entertainment’s Halloween party in October 2019.
Neither of the stars publicly commented on their breakup so, at this moment, there’s simply no way of knowing why their notable romance came to an end.

Daisy Edgar Jones may be John Taylor Smith’s love interest in Where The Crawdads sing, but there is no evidence of an off-set romance between them. Daisy has been subjected to numerous rumors involving dating her cast members. Most notable of them all are rumors of her relationship with her Normal People co-star, Paul Mescal.
In reality, Daisy Edgar Jones appears to be single just like John Taylor Smith. While many fans think they’d make a great couple, it doesn’t appear as though they are anything more than friendly colleagues at this point.
During an interview with Glamour, John explained how he built his on-screen chemistry with Daisy:
“Every time that we weren’t working, we were hanging out, doing movie nights, or we’d go walk around town or go on nature walks. She was teaching me how to DJ at some point. We’d just sit around and drink tea and talk for hours.”

“For three and a half years I drove every weekend, from Thursday to Monday, to Vegas from California to be with my girlfriend. Just consistently, every weekend, making the time.”

1/6 What Is John Taylor Smith Like In A Relationship?
Unless you’re actually in a relationship with John Taylor Smith, there’s simply no way of knowing what he’s actually like in one. However, he did tell Glamour that he believes his “kindness” is his best quality and that he is willing to go out of his way in a romance. He also explained his ethos for a successful relationship when describing what relationship rule he thinks sucks…
“You’re not allowed to have your own life outside of the relationship. You should have your own things going on,” John said to Glamour of the worst misconception of a successful relationship. “I think you should have mutual friends and then should also have your own friends and, you know, mutual interests and things you do together, but you should have your me time. I think it’s very important for both people. You can’t make the other person the adventure. You have to go on the adventure together. I think that builds a healthy relationship.”
