Ice hockey? Sure. Tonsil hockey? Not so fast!

When it comes to Valentine’s Day costar Taylor Lautner, Taylor Swift is choosing her words – and well-timed giggles – carefully.

The 19-year-old singer sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for an interview that is set to air Thursday, and found herself on the hot seat. After establishing that Swift shares scenes with the Twilight hottie in the upcoming romantic comedy, DeGeneres shows a picture of them kissing.

“What’s happening there. Is that part of the movie?” asks the talkshow host. Swift confirms it’s an on-screen smooch, but later gets chided for playing “coy” when pressed on whether Lautner is a “good kisser.”

DeGeneres was also armed with a shot of the two at a recent hockey game. “Is that part of the movie when you all go to some kind of game together?” DeGeneres asks. “Is that part of the movie too?”

“I really like hockey a lot and it turns out so does he,” Swift responds.

“Wow, So you just ran into each other?” DeGeneres counters, incredulous.

Sounds believable enough, right? Swift just laughed.
