Don't let the reports fool you.

Despite how Taylor Swift, 24, may come off at times in the media, her close pal Sarah Hyland, 23, insists she's quite frankly the best.

"She's just the most down-to-earth person," the Modern Family actress told PEOPLE on the red carpet at Sunday's Golden Globes. "She just seems like a really true friend, and it's just really great to meet people in this industry [like her]."

The pop star and Hyland rang in 2014 together, with the actress posting a photo with the caption: "New Years with the best of the best @taylorswift. I look scared… I think I should be."



Of her pal, Hyland says, "A lot of people I've met have a preconceived idea [about her], at least from tabloids, but she's one of the most amazing people I've ever met."

When asked if she, herself, was one of those people who bought into what the tabloids had to say before getting to know Swift, the upcoming Vampire Academy star said simply, "I won't comment on that."

The two starlets continued to make their close-knit bond clear when they danced the night away together at Warner Bros. & InStyle's annual post-Golden Globes bash after the show. Hyland even photobombed a selfie Swift took for the PEOPLE Instagram account.
