Has Taylor Swift met her latest mate? Maybe, maybe not. The singer-songwriter, 23, was at the Toronto Film Festival on Monday Sept. 9 for a screening of One Chance (a Swift song is featured on the film's soundtrack) -- and at a private party held at Soho House the Grammy-winning phenom made the acquaintance of a handsome newcomer.

Swift and actor Brenton Thwaites chatted for an hour in a booth together "making each other laugh," an onlooker tells Us Weekly. At the film fest to promote his flick Oculus, the Australian young star, 24, "had his arm around her back," the witness adds. "She touched his leg a few times. They seemed very into each other."

The pair posed for photos together at the bash, with Swift looking more mature than ever in a sexy white gown with side cutouts. The star's last known love was One Direction's Harry Styles, with whom she (awkwardly!) reunited at the MTV Video Music Awards in Brooklyn late last month.

No word yet on the romantic status of Thwaites, whose other credits include the 2012 TV movie Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, the Australian soap Home and Away, and a role as Prince Phillip in Angelina Jolie's Maleficent. Thwaites wasn't Swift's only party pal that night, of course: The "I Knew You Were Trouble" singer bonded with Julia Roberts, among many others. "She talked to several people, and he was one of them," another witness explains.
