They say life imitates art and that couldn’t be more true for Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup! The co-stars play husband and wife in the Netflix show Gypsy and according to sources, their romantic on-screen relationship has spilled over into the actors’ real lives because they’re now dating.

“Naomi and Billy are dating, but in the early stages”, a source recently revealed to Us Weekly. “They’re very into each other.”

But, hopefully, their relationship won’t completely mimic their Gypsy characters’ romance. On the show, they play a husband and wife going through a rough patch, but apparently the actors are extremely fond of each other… and have been for weeks.

Page Six reported in July that Naomi and Billy were spotted getting cozy on a summer date night. A source told the website, “Naomi Watts and Billy Crudup walked [into the restaurant] holding hands. We didn’t know they were a couple. Pretty cool seeing two big stars so into each other.” The witness added that the stars, “looked happy and were laughing a lot, then left again holding hands.”

This new relationship comes almost a year after the actress’ split from Liev Schreiber. The couple was together for 11 years and share two children together, Alexander “Sasha” and Samuel.

We doubt Liev will have a problem with his ex moving on — the couple has made a point to be great co-parents to their sons. “Hopefully, you pick someone you respect,” Liev explained following their split. “In the case of me and Naomi, we’re always going to have a relationship because we have children. So it’s important we work together well in that way. So far, it’s been great.” We wish them all the best!
