Phoebe Dynevor reveals what she learned from dating Pete Davidson

Phoebe Dynevor reveals what she learned from dating Pete Davidson

In a brand new interview, Phoebe Dynevor has opened up on her romance with Pete Davidson and what she learnt

While any type of break-up is truly devastating, there are always lessons that can be learnt no matter how soul-crushingly it ended.

One famous face that has done just that is Bridgerton's Phoebe Dynevor, who really shot to fame with the series back in 2020.

The actor had a subsequent romance with Pete Davidson, which propelled her into the public eye even further to the point where it became a bit too much for the star.

Speaking to the outlet Elle earlier this week, Dynevor said: "It just goes back to being naïve—I didn't think anyone would care. I was just being a young woman and dating and somehow that provokes a conversation. There were lots of hard lessons I had to learn through basically just having a personal life."

Rumors first began to swirl surrounding Dynevor and Davidson's dating life back in early 2021, before the pair confirmed their romance with a date in the English countryside in April of that year.

After that, Dynevor discovered that her new level of fame following Bridgerton - and her very public relationship - had changed her life.

"You realize, ‘Oh, I can't live my life in the way that I used to. I have to keep my cards slightly closer to my chest," she continued.

"There was a time, for example, when I'd post anything on my Instagram, and now I'm very, very careful about what I put out into the world."

It wasn't just that, though, as Dynevor had to deal with something else that was previously alien her.

Reflecting on the impact of paps, the actor said: "People are going to make up whatever story that they want to make from a few pictures, that's fine.

"I had to learn to let things go and let it wash over my head instead of the normal reaction, which is to be like, ‘But that's not true, and that didn't happen.' You have to let it go and focus on the work.

"I really am just here to act. I love my job so much, and it was weird for me that the attention was being taken away from my work."

But that wasn't the catalyst for her relationship to conclude with Davidson, with sources close to Dynevor claiming their relationship ultimately fizzled out due to location.

Dynevor was in England filming season 2 of Bridgerton while Davidson was based in New York.

"The long distance made it very difficult," a source close to Dynevor told E! News last year.

"They had fun, but it wasn't sustainable being so far apart. It was great while it lasted, but they both agreed it was best to move on."
