Ever since Katy Perry broke things off with long-time boyfriend and naked paddle boarder, Orlando Bloom, speculations as to who the pop star might be romantically entangled with have been widespread and varied.
However, these hunches and suspicions may have gotten a tad out of hand: Ryan Phillippe, former husband to Reese Witherspoon and an actor who you probably only remember from Cruel Intentions, was apparently targeted as one of Perry’s reported new lovers — despite the fact that there is very little evidence to corroborate this theory.
However, Phillippe decided to address any possible rumors head-on, by sending out the world’s best tweet.
For being a so-so actor, Phillippe is definitely a Twitter champion. I think he’s found his new calling.
Katy Perry, being the mischievous minx that she is, decided to play into the joke by asking Phillippe if he could let her out of his basement.
Phillippe hilariously/terrifyingly responded with “Never.”
Aw! Celebs! They’re just like us! They flirt online using coy kidnapping references!
Perry later introduced herself to Phillippe, and apologized for either the helicopters, the basement joke or both.
I don’t know, guys. These two may profess to not knowing one another, but their brand of online humor is clearly perfectly in sync. Perhaps they should — dare I say it — get to know one another? I mean, if you can’t have a celebrity meet-cute on Twitter, then I don’t know why we’re evening bothering to live in the future.
