She well and truly confirmed her romance with the Thor director over the weekend when the pair put on a very loved-up display during a romantic lunch. 

Rita and Taika, 45, first sparked romance rumours last month after they stepped out together at the Stan’s RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under premiere at the Sydney Opera House.

They avoided being photographed on the Opera House red carpet together, and appeared decidedly coy when they were spotted sneaking into the venue.
