Wednesday Addams would probably opt for being forever alone, but is the same true for the actor who plays Wednesday, 20-year-old Jenna Ortega? The jury is out. According to Bustle, Ortega was linked to actor Asher Angel back in 2018 when the pair attended a premiere together. Shortly after, Ortega and Angel also attended a Halloween event together dressed as Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson, who were engaged at that time. Doing a couple’s costume — and, furthermore, dressing up as an engaged couple — does suggest that the two were more than friends, but we’ll never know for sure because neither Ortega nor Angel ever confirmed a relationship.
Back in 2017, Ortega starred as the love interest in Jacob Sartorius’ “Chapstick” music video, and the two do share a smooch in the video (via Bustle). This led fans to believe that the pair were romantically involved, but, again, no real evidence surfaced to prove this. And in fact, on a 2019 podcast, Ortega shot down all the dating rumors about her: “According to the internet, I dated like six guys, [but I] dated none of them” (via Bustle).
The only crush Ortega has ever publicly owned up to? Barack Obama. “When I was younger, Barack Obama was my first crush,” she said on the “20 Questions: On Deadline” podcast (via Bustle). “I was obsessed with him. I watched the inauguration with goo-goo eyes on my face.”
