It looks like Patrick Schwarzenegger won't be the subject of a Taylor Swift song anytime soon!

Despite rumors of a budding romance between the two, Taylor - who took home five 2012 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday night - told AccessHollywood.com's Laura Saltman that reports of a new boyfriend in her life are not true.

"Patrick's a friend!" she said backstage at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles.

The constant speculation about her love life has the 22-year-old skipping certain blogs and news stories.

"That's why I don't read any gossip about me, because I don't want to be weirded out by who people think I'm dating," she explained. "I should just warn guys [who talk to me.]... 'This is what you can expect tomorrow on all these different blogs.'"

Taylor took home an acting award on Sunday, Choice Movie Voice for "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax," and the star explained that her fans might see more of her on the big screen.

"I would love to do more acting if it was the right thing," Taylor told Access. "If it was something I couldn't stop thinking about then that would be the project that I would go for."
