The former American Idol contestant, who was eliminated from the competition during Thursday's live results show, revealed last week that he is dating the Twilight actress.
"Honestly, I haven't seen any of her movies and know nothing, really, about her work," he said during an interview on KOST 103.5 FM.
"She's super cool, man. I think she likes me more because I've never seen any of her stuff."
The pair were introduced when the American Idol finalists attended the premiere of Red Riding Hood, where Reed praised McDonald's musical talent and admitted that she was a big fan of the singer.
