This piece will look at Garcia’s love life and career.
Is Aimee Garcia dating someone?
Since becoming a Hollywood star, Garcia has kept her dating life a secret. The only rumor regarding her dating life revolves around her relationship with Anthony Cook, a former professional football player.
According to reports, Cook and Garcia were spotted shopping at a jewelry store. Neither Anthony nor Garcia appear to be bothered about the rumor.
Maybe Garcia isn’t being secretive about her dating life; she just hasn’t started dating yet. In a 2011 interview with Latina Magazine [via Hollywood Mask], she stated that she was too busy to be in a relationship.
Furthermore, when asked about her dating history, Garcia told the magazine that her profession does not always allow her to date, but she laughed that she’d make an exception for Ryan Gosling.
She said, “I’m dating a very high-maintenance career. It takes up all my time – but if you run into Ryan Gosling, tell him to give me a call!”
