Although he’s been tight-lipped about it in the past, Wilmer Valderrama (best known as Fez from That 70′s Show) opened up a bit to Perez Hilton about his relationship with singer Demi Lovato in a recent interview for Perez TV. Key phrase: “a bit.”
When asked by Perez what he, a 31-year-old, had been doing dating a 19-year-old, he had this to say:
You know, it wasn’t even like that, it was just…it was a real interesting time for her, and…we were really just best friends and to be honest, I couldn’t be more proud of her. I’m so proud of her, considering all the different obstacles and everything she’s been through, I mean, she’s got a pretty good handle on it. Like she says, it’s gonna be a struggle for her every day, but I was proud to be there for her when she needed me and she was there for me a number of times too, and we have a great friendship.
Other people with whom Wilmer has reportedly enjoyed “great friendships” include a virginal Mandy Moore (whom he claimed to Howard Stern to have deflowered), a 17-year-old Lindsay Lohan, and a freshly post-divorce Avril Lavigne. Why, it’s almost like he has exclusively troubled young starlets for friends! Also, all his friends are required to kiss him. And do other stuff, probably.
Look out, barely legal women of Hollywood, for when you even begin to think about your downward trajectory, it’s Fez who will appear seemingly out of nowhere to help you along. I’m especially concerned about you, Taylor Momsen. Lose his number before it’s too late.
