Whenever two celebrities start dating it’s always a blogworthy event. In this case Paul McDonald was just recently casted of American Idol, but now he is dating Nikki Reed.

Reed was first in the movie Thirteen and is now known for her role in the Twilight saga.

Us Magazine online reports that McDonald, 26, said this of his 22-year-old girlfriend:

“[Nikki’s] supercool,” he told Us Weekly Thursday night in L.A. “She’s been real supportive of this whole thing. She’s actually pumped up now because she likes my original material way better than all the stuff I do on the show.”

Even though the couple is “officially dating,” McDonald said the two “don’t get to see each other too much because [they’re] both working so hard.”

The funny part is that McDonald is not a fan of the franchise:

But don’t expect McDonald to be first in line at the premiere of Breaking Dawn. “I told her I’m not watching any of [her movies] for a long time… She said, ‘I don’t want you watching’ and I was like ‘I don’t want to!'”
