Three months after they were first romantically linked, Zoe Kravitz and Channing Tatum seemed to confirm their relationship with some sweet PDA.
On Saturday the 32-year-old actress was spotted getting affectionate with the 41-year-old Magic Mike star as they held hands and threw their arms around each other while on a lunch date in New York City.
The very-cool couple first stepped out together just days after Kravitz’s divorce from Karl Glusman was finalized but had not shown any physical affection until now.

Also flexing his athletic-leaning personal style was Channing, who strolled hand-in-hand with his lady love in black dickies and an oversized tan hoodie with sneakers.
The two appeared deep in conversation and certainly looked a bit smitten as they both flashed smiles while making their way through the city.

After some hand-holding they then upgraded to some closer contact as he adoringly threw his arm around her shoulders while Zoe grabbed him around his waist.
Prior to their Saturday outing, the rumored couple spent time together publicly but gave no physical indication of a relationship.
The pair both attended the Met Gala but walked the red carpet separately in September, however things seemed to heat up behind closed doors.
They were seen mingling inside before leaving the event together, and heading to an after party where they reportedly ‘did not take their hands off of each other.’
PEOPLE had reported two weeks prior to that, that they were ‘inseparable’ and had ‘cute and flirty chemistry.’

An insider had spoken to their fondness for each other at the time, as they disclosed that Zoe thought Channing had ‘depth both as an actor and a person,’ and that he liked how she was ‘independent and outspoken as well as bright.’
In a recent interview about her upcoming solo album, Kravitz spoke about channeling the ‘love and loss’ she experienced regarding her divorce from ex Karl Glusman into her music.
‘It’s about love and loss. I got married. I got divorced,’ she told Another Magazine. ‘Separations, break ups are sad but are beautiful things too. It’s about the bittersweetness, that beginning and that end.’
The Batman star continued to say that amid the heartbreak, there was also a space of ‘being excited for what’s ahead of you,’ which seemed to nod to her budding romance with Tatum.

In the same vein of channeling heartbreak into music, Tatum’s most recent ex Jessie J — who he dated on and off from 2018 to 2020 — divulged that her next album will also speak to their failed relationship.
‘The first song is about being in a relationship and someone just dismissing it. You know, when you go through a breakup and someone is like, “OK, bye”,’ she prompted on Capital FM radio. ‘One of my favourite songs is about just going for it and jumping in at the deep end’
Zoe and Channing made their first public outing together a mere days after it was announced her divorce from Glusman had been finalized following just 18 months of marriage, in late August.
They had first connected in the spring when she approached the Step Up actor about starring in her directorial debut — a film called P***y Island, and fittingly told Deadline that he was her ‘first choice.’
