Jenna Ortega stars as Wednesday Addams on Netflix where she’s caught in a love triangle - but is she dating anyone IRL?
Jenna Ortega has become the ‘it girl’ after starring as Wednesday Addams in the titular Netflix series, Wednesday - and fans want to know more about the actress, including whether she's dating anyone.
The 20-year-old actress has become the Scream Queen of our generation after a number of horror flick roles, but her latest as Wednesday has made her one of the most talked-about stars in a while.
Although her character is caught in somewhat of a love triangle in the Netflix dark comedy between Xavier and Tyler, fans have been trying to find out more about Jenna’s IRL love life.
So, is Jenna dating anyone at the moment and who has she been romantically involved with?
Jenna Ortega explains how her Wednesday Addams is different from the others
As of 2023, Jenna appears to be single and not dating anyone.
The actress is private about her romantic life and has remained tight-lipped about relationships, but did open up about her approaching to dating when she spoke to fellow actor Dax Shepard on the Armchair Expert podcast, telling him that she's not ready to date yet as her career remains her focus.
"I almost don't even find myself interested," Jenna explained, "but I think a big part of it is self-esteem. Like, I don't think I'm ready to be that vulnerable or trusting with someone."
She told Dax that she's dated in the past: "I was in a relationship for a couple of years, but I stopped when things got too hectic. If there's one thing I'm going to focus on – which is probably something I need to change – it's gonna be my work."
She was also romantically linked to singer Jacob Sartorius after she appeared in his ‘Chapstick’ music video, where they shared a kiss.
However, Jenna set the record straight on her rumoured ‘ex-boyfriends’ during a podcast appearance in 2019.
She said on the Just Between Us podcast that she had never actually dated any of the boys she was linked to online.
When asked what the craziest thing she ever heard about herself was, she said: “Probably relationships. According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them.”
