Tommy Dorfman cuddles Lucas Hedges after calling her marriage ‘friendship’ since coming out as trans

Tommy Dorfman cuddles up to Lucas Hedges… after admitting her nine year marriage has turned into a ‘friendship’ since coming out as a trans woman

Tommy Dorfman oozed glamour as she attended a special movie screening at LA’s Greek Theater last Thursday, the same day she came out as a transgender woman in a bold new interview with Time.

Happily living her truth, the 13 Reasons Why star, 29, cuddled up close to actor Lucas Hedges to watch the 2001’s Josie And The Pussycats starring Rachel Leigh Cook.

And she was dressed for the occasion, sporting a perfectly 2000s twinset with shiny leather pants and a sparkling silver bag for what appeared to be date night.

New couple alert? Tommy Dorfman and Lucas Hedges looked very close while watching Josie And The Pussycats during a screening at LA’s Greek Theater last Thursday

Tommy had her chin-length blonde hair in curls while keeping her skin at a dewy, natural glow.

Lucas wrapped an arm around the Atlanta native sweetly, donning a fashion forward plaid jacket with shorts and a tee shirt.

Though it was unclear if the Manchester By The Sea star, 24, and Dorfman are involved, they definitely seemed closer than just friends.

Last week when Tommy came out as transgender, she also revealed her relationship with Peter Zurkuhlen has evolved into a friendship since she began embracing her gender.

‘I was in a nine-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man,’ she explained in the Time piece.

‘I love him so much, but we’ve been learning that as a trans woman, what I’m interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man. So we’ve had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends.’

And this isn’t the first time the pair has been seen enjoying some PDA. 

Last month Tommy and Lucas were seen holding hands while walking around NYC.

From husband to friend: 'I was in a nine-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man,' Tommy told Time of Zurkuhlen. 'I love him so much, but we've been learning that as a trans woman, what I'm interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man. So we've had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends'

Hedges was previously linked to his Waves co-star Taylor Russell after the 2019 film.

In 2018, he reflected on his sexuality while talking about how he related to playing a gay teen in the film Boy Erased.

‘I recognize myself as existing on that spectrum: Not totally straight, but also not gay and not necessarily bisexual,’ he told Vulture at the time.

‘People expect you as an actor to have a voice that’s set in some way, and that’s really not what I am. 

‘I’m very much within the conflict and confusion of my own life, still, and I definitely feel a pressure to step up in a way. I prefer to step up in my art, and I don’t entirely know how to in my life.’
