Who is Tanner Buchanan dating? Here’s what we know

Tanner Buchanan is one of the lead stars on Netflix’s He’s All That alongside Addison Rae. In the film, Rae’s character, a popular influencer, takes up the difficult job of turning the most unpopular boy in school (Tanner) into the prom king. As the rom-com progresses, the two contrasting characters fall for each other. 

Fans have speculated that Tanner and Addison are dating in real life. The pair’s kiss at the 2021 MTV Movie & TV Awards sparked the speculation before Addison fanned the flames by admitting that she and Tanner practiced kissing during their free time.

Tanner Buchanan is not dating Addison Rae as he is in a serious relationship with Lizze Broadway. 

Tanner and Lizze Broadway have dated since they were young teens

Tanner and Lizze Broadway go back a long way. Buchanan told Anna Faris that he’s been dating Broadway since they were young teens. The couple broke up briefly but swiftly got back together. 

“I will admit, it was my fault,” Tanner said. “I was actually kind of being an ass during that time. So she had every right to [break up with me].”

Lizze and Tanner had a semi-public relationship, but they seem to have adopted a secret relationship. They are no longer as active on Instagram as they were a while back. 

Buchanan would be open to playing an LGBTQ+ character

Tanner Buchanan wouldn’t mind playing an LGBTQ+ character. He is straight in real life but would enjoy playing a queer character. 

He’s done so before on The Fosters and Major Crimes but is yet to do so in a major production. Tanner told Variety:

“If I have the opportunity to represent something like that, that’s incredible. If they’re willing to write it. Then you know what? Of course I’m going to play it.”

Buchanan appreciates that he spent some time away from his native, conservative Midwest as it exposed him to LGBTQ+ sexualities early on. Tanner continues:

“I do come from the Midwest and it can be a little conservative sometimes. Growing up, people aren’t exposed to the world and I was lucky enough to have come out to LA where it’s a completely different world than Midwest. And my eyes were open to that from a very young age that I was like, ‘Yeah, that makes sense.’”
