Actress Kate Bosworth who has consistently churned out hit indie movies one after the other in Hollywood is recently rumoured to be dating Justin Long, 43. Kate, who split from partner Michael Polish in August, 2021, has kept her dating life pretty private and away from the constant glare of the paparazzi but not anymore.
The actress sparked rumours about her dating life with Justin after the two finished filming for a movie in the spring of 2021. Kate took to Instagram to share videos of her and Justin, hanging around and having casual fun around Fayetteville, Arkansas. Her caption read, “There are some movie experiences when you learn a lotttttt about another person. Well, we just wrapped one of those — all night shoots, working 6-day weeks,” with a picture of her on Long’s lap having a laugh. She even tagged Justin on her post as she continued, “The exhaustion & insanity was off the grid. Holy moly @justinlong you are a truly spectacular / fun / funny / kind / rare / thoughtful / totally. Fckn. Rad human being.”
The couple were later spotted sharing an intimate cosy moment with each other at a small deli in Fairfield, Connecticut, which ironically happens to be Justin’s hometown as well. Sources later confirmed that the two ate indeed seeing each other but there’s nothing certain about it, instead they are trying things out and seem to click pretty well together. The couple still want to keep their private life away from the media attention and see how things work out for both.
Since 2021, Bosworth has followed and ardently liked and commented on each of the “He’s just not that into you” actor’s posts and comments including a November 2021 photo where Long was making some traditional Thanksgiving hummus and December snap of him sitting on the Santa’s lap. All these adorable moments certainly confirm that the two are off to a good start. They made their first public outing together in Massachusetts in November 2021, when fan tried to document his run-in with Long and instead brought the camera shy Kate Bosworth into his Instagram video as well. The two later were found to have moved along and even spent the summer together after the movie wrapped up. Justin later confirmed in an episode of his “Life is Short” podcast, that he was indeed in a relationship.
While speaking to guest Fortune on his podcast episode there was a mention of pineapple pizza and it was then, in that context, that the actor alluded to his mystery girlfriend, saying, “People have been saying [pineapple] lately and it’s funny my girlfriend said that hers is uhh — she loves the pineapple, too.” As an afterthought, he added, “I’ve never been with anyone who likes pineapple on pizza.”
Kate Bosworth for her part had split up from Polish, 51, after almost 8 years of marriage and was spotted without her wedding ring. She took to Instagram to come clean about her separation saying “Together, over the last ten years, Michael and I have chosen love, every time. We hold hands as tightly today as we entangled fingers on our wedding day.”
