Rami Malek and his No Time To Die co-star Lea Seydoux put on a very cosy display as they embraced after an intimate sushi dinner in LA on Tuesday.
The Oscar winner, 41, who played villain Lyutsifer Safin in the 2021 James Bond movie, and the French actress, 37, who portrayed Dr. Madeleine Swann, were in high spirits as they hugged and posed for photos on Sunset Boulevard, after a two hour meal.
Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami – who is dating actress Lucy Boynton, 28 – looked dapper in a black shirt and trousers as he laughed and joked with Lea as they left the eaterie arm-in-arm, with the pair hugging as they walked down the street.
Blue Is The Warmest Colour’s Lea – who has been in a relationship with Andre Meyer since 2013 – wore a striking mustard blazer and matching slacks, paired with a black woolen hat and boots as she reciprocated Rami’s affections with an embrace.

Safin murdered Madeleine’s mother in revenge for her father’s killing of his entire family – but spared her life.
Decades later the terrorist leader and scientist kidnapped Madeleine and the daughter she shared with James Bond, in a bid to destroy 007’s hopes of a happy future.

Rami confirmed his romance with Brit actress Lucy after meeting on the set of Bohemian Rhapsody in 2017, with the Mr. Robot star taking on the role of Queen lead singer Freddie Mercury opposite the Sing Street actress as Freddie’s former love interest Mary Austin.
The two clicked quickly, but kept their relationship mostly under wraps until the 2019 Academy Awards ceremonies.
That’s when the Oscar winner kissed his co-star before he headed to the stage to receive his Best Actor award.
In his acceptance speech the Egyptian-American actor singled out Lucy as ‘the heart of this film.’

He said, ‘You are beyond immensely talented. You have captured my heart. Thank you so much.’
In looking back at the moment, The Politician actress said in an interview with You magazine that ‘It sounds so silly but I was really unaware of the public element of that.
‘You’re just absorbing, millisecond by millisecond, what is happening,’ the British beauty explained,’ and then suddenly you hear the applause and you realize it’s been a public moment, which is slightly strange.’
