Justin Long confirms the romance of Kate Bosworth | Entertainment and celebrity news

Justin Long has confirmed his romance with Kate Bosworth.

The 43-year-old actor has been linked to the ‘Blue Crush’ actress for a few months and has now made it clear for the first time that she is his girlfriend and that he is “in love”.

Appearing on the ‘Dear Chelsea’ podcast, host Chelsea Handler praised her guest for being “newly in love”.

Justin replied, “Yeah, and she loves you. She’s a really big fan of you, personally.”

The 47-year-old comedian replied, “I like him a lot too. Am I allowed to say his name? Are you okay?”

When the former ‘New Girl’ star confirmed that everything was fine, Chelsea named her partner Kate.

Justin admitted being in love is “such a wonderful feeling”, but he is keen to “protect” his romance with the 39-year-old star.

He said: “There’s something about it, for me, that I feel I have to protect and keep sacred because it feels sacred to me.

“I’ve never had anything like this before; I’ve never experienced this,” Long said. “So this is something I want to protect and keep, you know?”

The ‘Dodgeball’ star’s admission that he is dating Kate comes a week after he teased he had found The One.

He said: “I had gotten to a place where I was comfortable with myself. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was ready for this one.

“And the one I met. I found.

“I want [talk about it], but I also want to be protective. I want to shout it from the rooftops, but I also want to be protective. It is sacred.”

The “Accepted” star admitted in December that he has a girlfriend and shared how she loves pineapple on her pizza while discussing toppings on her podcast.

Justin and Kate shot an unnamed movie in Arkansas last year, and when filming wrapped the actress – who announced last August that she had split from husband Michael Polish after seven years of marriage – paid tribute to his “spectacular” co-star.

Sharing a series of images, she wrote on Instagram in May 2021: “Holy moly @justinlong you are a truly spectacular/fun/funny/kind/rare/thoughtful/totally. fckn. rad human being. [sunflower emoji].

“THANK YOU for lifting us up…you kept the light full of laughter every day, even in the toughest times. You gnome how much I love you [yellow heart emoji] (sorry I had to 😉 (sic)”

Justin jokingly commented, “That’s ALL you wrote about me??? Well…I admire your restraint. (sic)”

But he then paid tribute to Kate as a “rare gem”.

He added: “I’m kidding because it’s embarrassing and too much… I’m going to say even nicer things about you publicly because people should know how much of a gem you are – all the things you have say about me but a little (or a lot) more. It was a real pleasure to be in your shine. (sic)”
