Alfred Thomas Highmore, professionally known as Freddie Highmore, is an English actor. Acting from a very young age, he is best known for his roles in films like Women Talking Dirty, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the Spiderwick Chronicles, etc. And he has worked with fellow actors like Johnny Depp, AnnaSophia Robb, Helena Bonham Carter, Gina McKee, and many others.
Born on 14th February 1992, the 26-year-old has been in quite a few relationships, and some of his former girlfriends include Dakota Fanning.
Here, we are going to talk about who he is dating at the moment and find out if he is single. Further, we will also talk about his past affairs and dating rumors.
As of 2018, Engish actor Freddie Highmore is a single man. He has not been in a relationship since he broke up with his ex-girlfriend Dakota Fanning, and there is a proper reason behind it.
According to sources, the actor prefers to stay out of relationships because he was highly traumatized during the relationship and break up Fanning.
Even though he is single and focusing on his career, he is currently accused of being gay. There are numerous rumors which claim that he is gay. And the major reason behind all these rumors is because he is single for such a long time. Further, his portrayal of a gay man Norman in TV series Bates Motel is also one of the reasons.
Outlets assume that he is gay just because his acting is very realistic. However, the actor has not shared any information about being gay, nor has he been linked with any other man inside or outside of the industry.
Freddie Highmore's first public relationship was with fellow Irish actress Sarah Bolger. The duo started dating in October 2006 and had a very loving relationship.
However, they were criticized for the relationship because, at the time, Freddie was just 15 while Bolger was 16. In the UK, the legal age is 16, and she was mainly dating a minor.
Fans did not support the relationship, and some fans even spoke out about how she was molesting Freddie.
It seems the pressure from the fans had them break up more than two years later in June 2009.
Following his split with Bolger, he again started dating American actress Dakota Fanning. Unlike his previous relationship which lasted years, this one lasted just for a few months.
However, despite being a terse relationship, it was a very traumatic experience for Highmore which has resulted in him not getting into any links.
Likewise, even though he has not dated anyone since last nine years, in 2016, it was rumored that the actor was in a relationship with another American actress Abigail Breslin. According to sources, they dated for almost two years.
But neither of them has addressed the rumor so, it is safe to assume that the story was a hoax.
