Shane West’s girlfriend in 2018 could be anyone, especially now that the year has just started. Is he even single? As we celebrate the 16th anniversary of his greatest film (the one that made us all fall in love with him), fans are curious about his personal life and what he’s been up to. In the past, the actor dated a string of beautiful and supremely talented women. Here is a list of them in chronological order. 

Whether he’s playing Eli Sammler in ABC’s family drama Once and Again, Landon Carter in the very famous A Walk to Remember, or Darby Crash in What We Do Is Secret, one thing is for sure: Shane West still owns our hearts. Did you know that, aside from acting, he was also in a punk-rock band? So, it’s no surprise that, given his looks and talent, he’s had girls falling for him for years! But that apart who is Shane West dating in reality?

Love Knocks on Set

Born Shannon Bruce Snaith, the man is said to be single at the moment. However, he has been in the news quite recently when Mandy Moore admitted that she fell in love with him during their time filming A Walk to Remember. While Moore was just starting out her career, West was an established star. She gushed about him in an interview admitting she was young, impressionable, and crushing hard on him.

“Shane was so cool. Everything about him – the way he dressed, the little cigarettes that he smoked, and the music he listened to. He was the character to me,” explained Moore.

“There was definitely a part of me that absolutely fell in love with him. I don’t know if I could discern the difference between him and the character at that point in time because, again, it was my first experience doing anything like this and I was a 16-year-old, impressionable girl,” she added. As she reminisced about the time that the duo acted together, she said it was an “overwhelmingly positive, memorable experience.”

But did the two ever actually date? Read on to find out!
