Casey Affleck, 46, shares a passionate kiss with glamorous girlfriend Caylee Cowan, 24, as they finish their Cannes engagements at the amFAR Gala
The romantic backdrop appeared to work its magic on Casey Affleck and his young girlfriend as they made an appearance in the south of France on Thursday evening.
Oscar-winning Affleck was joined by long-term partner Caylee Cowan in the neatly manicured grounds of Cannes hotspot Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc ahead of the annual amFAR Gala.
Posing for photos, the actor and director leaned in to plant a kiss on the perfectly painted lips of Cowan – who at 24 is 22-years younger than her 46-year old boyfriend.
The actress looked typically stunning in a classically designed lace gown complete with a cleavage enhancing semi-sheer bodice as she joined Affleck for his final social engagement in Cannes.

amfAR is one of the world’s leading nonprofit organizations dedicated to the support of AIDS research, HIV prevention, treatment education, and advocacy.
Since 1985, it has invested nearly $617 million in its programs and has awarded more than 3,500 grants to research teams worldwide.
And the Cannes Gala succeeded in raising a cumulative total of more than $245 million for amfAR’s lifesaving AIDS research.
This extraordinary success has enabled the Foundation to make critical research investments that have brought us within reach of a cure for HIV.

In January, Affleck and Cowan celebrated a year since the day they met by sharing heartfelt tributes to each other on their Instagram accounts.
‘Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere, they’re in each other all along,’ Cowan began her post with a quotation from the 13th-century Persian poet Rumi.
‘Today, January 26th, is the day we first met. The universe conspired to bring us together when we each needed the other most,’ she continued.

‘Caleb Casey Affleck, you are the other half of my heart. You are such a wonderful and loving boyfriend,’ the aspiring actress wrote. ‘You are a genius who beats everyone at chess (except your youngest son).
Affleck previously made his relationship with Cowan Instagram official in November 2021 with a chaste — and since deleted — post calling her his ‘love.’
He praised her for joining him and members of his baseball team in donating blood, even though she’s ‘usually unenthused about needles, blood, etc.’
The post confirmed a split from his previous girlfriend, actress Foriana Lima, 40, though neither party announced the breakup.
