He’s just really into her.
Justin Long and Kate Bosworth were the mirror image of a teenaged romance as they playfully tickled each other on the streets of New York on Thursday.
Paparazzi caught up with the smitten pair as they went for a stroll in Manhattan during the warm Spring day.
In a video from the outing, Long, 43, is seen tickling Bosworth, 39, who retaliates by playfully smacking his hands away from her.
After his very public display of affection, the “He’s Just Not That Into You” star politely tells the cameraman, “OK, see you, thank you.”
The “Blue Crush” star then waves before linking arms over her partner’s shoulder.
In additional images from their walk together, it appears Long and Bosworth could not keep their hands off of each other.
The “Win a Date with Tad Hamilton” star — who was dressed in a yellow hoodie, jean shorts, black sandals and a white Balenciaga cap — was photographed holding Long tightly around his waist. Meanwhile, he kept her close by with his arm over her shoulder.
Although the couple appeared comfortable in front of the cameras, a source exclusively tells Page Six that they asked photographers at one point to “leave them alone.”
Long and Bosworth have been flaunting their love recently from the Big Apple to Hawaii.
During a vacation the couple took together to the island of Kaua’i in April, they were spotted locking lips and cuddling on the beach.
Although they are not shy to share their romance now with the public, Long first played coy when he revealed he had a girlfriend.
In December 2021, the “Going the Distance” star confirmed he was dating someone, but hesitated to disclose her identity at the time.
However, Page Six exclusively reported that same month that Bosworth was his new lady.
The actors met while filming an unnamed movie in Fayetteville, Ark., in early 2021.
Bosworth gushed about Long on Instagram three months before she officially separated from her husband Michael Polish in August 2021.
She wrote of her co-star-turned-lover in May 2021, “Holy moly @justinlong you are a truly spectacular / fun / funny / kind / rare / thoughtful / totally. fckn. rad human being.”
Long has since returned the compliment by calling her “the one” in a recent interview.
