In 2009, she was spotted going to a movie with All ABout Steve's co-stars Haley Ramm and Natt Wolff. This incident along with Natt's comments that his song Greatest prize was dedicated to her were reasons that made some wonder that there might be something going on between them. But, either of the two didn't make comments on such rumors.


In 2011 the School of Rock actress appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (March 2011), and joked that she needed help from the show's host, Ellen, in finding a perfect boyfriend.
