‘Covert Affairs’ Piper Perabo Is Not Dating Prince William

Piper PeraboPiper Perabo will not answer reporters’ questions about her love life, but she has been asked about it enough over the years to have some pretty good stories about being asked about it.

“I was in an interview once and the interviewer asked me, ‘Who are you dating?’” Piper told Crushable while speaking to reporters this afternoon to promote her upcoming USA show Covert Affairs. “I said, ‘I never say things about that.’ And she said, ‘Okay, well just tell me if you’re dating someone mega famous, like Prince William, so I don’t look stupid when I go back to my editor.’ And I was like, ‘I promise you, I’m not dating Prince William.’”

However, although Piper (who was linked to Chris Pine this winter) won’t talk about who she’s dating, she did let us in on her worst blind date story. “Once a friend of mine set me up on a date with someone and we met at a movie theater…and he fell asleep,” Piper said. “About five minutes into the movie my date fell asleep, like he fell all the way asleep. Not just a little bit asleep, like can’t keep your eyes open asleep. Like snoring so that other people in the movie theater had to say be quiet. So humiliating and disheartening.”

Piper plays a new CIA agent on Covert Affairs, which debuts July 13. We’ll have more from our interview with her next week.
