Actors Laura Prepon and Ben Foster appeared to confirm their romance when they made their red carpet debut as a couple on Tuesday.
The Orange is the New Black star was rumored to be dating the actor in July after they were spotted together on a number of occasions and they made it official on Tuesday when Laura brought Ben along to the New York premiere of her new film The Girl on the Train.
The pair didn’t speak about their relationship but let their body language do the talking as they linked arms to pose for photographers. Laura was also noticeably wearing a sparkling diamond ring on her wedding finger, sparking possible engagement rumors.
Talk of a romance first began circulating when sources told Us Weekly magazine they had seen the pair “making out” at French bistro Lucien in New York City and being “really close” while spending time together at the Ugly Mug pub in Cape May, New Jersey. They have also been spotted out and about in New York together.
The speculation came almost a year after Ben, 35, split from Sean Penn’s ex-wife Robin Wright, who he was engaged to twice. They began dating in 2012 and he proposed in December, 2013 but they split almost a year later. They eventually reconciled and she put back on her engagement ring but finally called it quits last summer.
Laura reportedly hasn’t been in a serious relationship since she broke up with Christopher Masterson, the brother of her That 70s Show co-star Danny Masterson, in 2007.
The 36-year-old previously told Cosmopolitan magazine in 2014 dating was “next to impossible” while she’s working.
“I like to think I’ll just be walking down the street one day and stop and meet someone, like, “Oh, my God, you’re awesome,” and then we start dating. But, no,” she said. “Guys occupy a lot of attention space in your mind. When I’m working, living in a new place, it’s kind of cool I don’t have to deal with that.”0
