Contributor

Justin Theroux was spotted out and about in Paris on Monday with actress Laura Harrier. The two were sending out serious day date vibes, which had fans speculating there may be a romance brewing between the actors. 

The pair stepped out together in the city of romance earlier this week, and while photos don't reveal any PDA, the well-dressed duo couldn't help but send couple vibes. Harrier, 28, drew attention in a chic orange ensemble, while her date kept things casual with black jeans and a hunter green jacket. 

The outing comes just days after Theroux, 47, opened up about his split from "America's Sweetheart" Jennifer Aniston early this year. The former Hollywood power couple announced their divorce back in February after over two years of marriage and nearly seven years together as a couple. Last week, Theroux told the New York Times the split was "heartbreaking" but "amicable."

The actor appears to be recovering from the heartbreak, and has been spotted out "on the prowl" recently with his share of starlets, including longtime friend and rumored beau Emma Stone. Harrier seems to be the latest potential beau to be wined and dined by the actor. But who is Laura Harrier? Here's everything you need to know about Hollywood's newest it-girl on the rise. 

1. Her star is on the rise 

Harrier has been active in film and TV since 2013, but her breakout role came last year when she starred as Peter Parker's love interest in Spider-Man: Homecoming. More recently, Harrier has gained major star power for her role as Patrice in the acclaimed BlacKkKlansman, in which she stars opposite John David Washington, Adam Driver, and Topher Grace.

The 28-year-old beauty got her start as a model when she was 18, deferring her enrollment to the NYU Gallatin School of Individualized Study to pursue her career. The model and actress has appeared in campaigns for American Eagle, Garnier, and Urban Outfitters. You may also have spotted her in the pages of magazines like Elle, Glamour, and Cosmopolitan.

3. She started acting in 2013

After her early modeling success, Harrier broke into the acting world in 2013 with a role on One Life To Live. She played Destiny Evans, reprising the role originally played by Shenell Edmonds. 

4. This isn't the first time she's been out with Theroux 

The two were also spotted out in Paris together just last week. Prior to that, the pair enjoyed a yacht day back in May and were also snapped together at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes, where they both attended the Louis Vuitton Cruise 2019 show. "Permanent vacation," the star captioned an Instagram snap from the event.

5. Spike Lee interrupted her vacation 

Harrier told Vanity Fair she was on vacation in Greece when she got the career-making call to audition for BlacKkKlansman. "I was on vacation last summer, sitting on a beach in Greece, having a glass of rosé, and I get a phone call from a number I didn’t know. I picked up and I hear, “Laura, this is Spike Lee.” And I’m like, “We have to get off of this island! He wants to meet me!” I figured out how to get back to New York in a day," she told the magazine.

6. She loves her Manolos 

But she's not following in Carrie Bradshaw's high-heeled steps. In the same Vanity Fair profile, the actress says she prefers to stick to her Manolo loafers. Sensible! She also cited Dior 956 as her favorite lipstick and vintage Levis as her favorite jeans.

7. She was born for New York

The Chicago-born actress got her first taste of the Big Apple when she was just 12 years old. "I remember coming out of the tunnel into gross Midtown and thinking, I’m home. It was my goal to move there," she said in her Vanity Fair profile. New York may be her first love, but the star definitely has big things ahead in Hollywood.
