Are Martin Short And Meryl Streep Dating? Here's What We Know

If you’re a fellow Only Murders In The Building fan then you know, Meryl Streep and Martin Short play TV’s best couple. But according to the rumor mill (aka Twitter), the romance didn’t stop at the end of filming season three. In fact, it looks like the two stayed in character at the Golden Globes (* wiggles eyebrows*).

The two have been industry friends for decades, and always have been supportive of each other’s work. But maybe all that time playing each other’s lovers led to something more in real life. So, are Meryl Streep and Martin Short dating? Here’s what we know.

According to the latest DeuxMoi newsletter, the anonymous celebrity gossip account reported that there is “an industry rumor” that Meryl and Martin are supposedly dating.

Those Meryl Streep and Martin Short Dating Rumors Explained

First of all, we know Meryl and Martin have been single and ready to mingle for quite some time. In October, People confirmed that Meryl had quietly separated from her husband Don Gummer over six years ago. And Martin’s wife Nancy Dolman passed away in 2010.

The two reunited on the set of Only Murders in the Building to play lovers in the murder mystery show. In Aug. 2023, Meryl Streep personally thanked OMITB showrunner John Hoffman for her “beautiful” onscreen romance with Martin Short’s Oliver Putnam.

And at the Golden Globes, the two sat next to each other all night. Let’s just say, if looks could tell a story, we know exactly what they think of each other. However, as of right now, there is no confirmation from either celebrity. Guess we’ll have to wait until they embrace their power couple status publicly and/or take over as host of Golden Bachelor (pls 🙏).
