Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston have been at the centre of a frenzy since making their romance public last month.
Nevertheless the couple put any drama to one side as they reunited for a romantic dinner date in California.
The stars were spotted grinning and walking hand-in-hand as they arrived at Hillstone in Santa Monica for a bite to eat.
Looking more loved-up than ever, the pair reportedly spent two hours laughing and joking over their meals.
An insider told E! News: “It seems like they are always sharing a laugh or inside joke. They were giggly and sweet.”
As they emerged from the fancy diner Taylor and The Night Manager actor Tom were still holding mitts.
Gentleman Tom initially forgot to open the car door for Taylor but quickly remembered and returned to the passenger side, closing the door behind her.
According to insiders, it’s officially L-O-V-E between the two.
“They have gotten very close, the insider continued. “She is enjoying the time off from working. She has been writing during her travels, and Tom has been an inspiration in her music.”
Speaking at Comic Con about the attention surrounding his romance with the Shake It Off star, he said: “I don’t know. It comes down to being authentic.
“Everything you do you have to make sure you truly believe in it and as long as you know that, it doesn’t matter what anyone else says about it.”
He added: “The nature of being a public figure is that everyone will have an opinion about anything you do, and as long as you know why you’ve done something and you’ve committed to it with authenticity then you’re OK.”
