Martin Short and Meryl Streep met up for dinner at Giorgio Baldi nearly a month after shutting down dating rumors. On Wednesday, the Only Murders in the Building costars, who are both in their 70s, were spotted leaving dinner with friends in tow in Santa Monica. Streep opted for black pants, a pink button-down, and a red jacket whereas Short dressed up a little in a gray sweater and black sport coat.


Talk of a budding romance began after Streep and Short were seated together at the 2024 Golden Globes. A representative for Short told People the pair “are just very good friends, nothing more.” But who can blame us for hoping there might be some truth to it?

The group dinner did more than fuel dating rumors, though. It also spawned semiserious online speculation that Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift may have been gossiping about Short and Streep’s alleged fling at the Golden Globes instead of an interaction gone awry with Timothée Chalamet and Kylie Jenner. Lip readers initially speculated the latter, but Gomez set the record straight after the show ended by leaving a comment under an E! News Instagram post asking, “Was Selena Gomez Gossiping About Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet at the Golden Globes?”

“Noooooo. I told Taylor about two of my friends who hooked up,” the Rare Beauty mogul wrote in reply. “Not that that’s anyone business.”

Now, people are wondering whether Martin Short and Meryl Streep—who star alongside Gomez in Only Murders—might be the two “friends” in question. “My Roman Empire is that this is what Selena was telling Taylor about in the moment that became a meme at the Golden Globes,” communications professional Nick Hutchins wrote on X above a retweeted image of Streep and Short.
