This sighting of the pair together comes about seven years after O'Brien confessed his crush on the actress. In a 2011 interview with Hollywire, the Teen Wolf alum gave a shout-out to Moretz.

"I wanna give a special shout-out to Chloë Moretz because she is the most bad-ass little chick that I've ever seen," O'Brien said. "What she did in Kick-Ass was amazing and I have a crush on her."

Months later, O'Brien retracted his comments after discovering that Moretz was only 14 at the time. "So I'd like to take that back and I'd like to retract and say that I think Chloë Moretz is a very cute and talented girl, I don't have a crush on her," O'Brien told Hollywire, adding "she's a good actress."

Prior to being linked to O'Brien, Moretz was in and on and off relationship with Brooklyn Beckham. As for O'Brien, he was previously in a long-term relationship with his The First Time co-star Britt Robertson.
