Love is in the Air: Lily Collin & Thomas Cocquere are Lovestruck Teenagers While Watching a Basketball Game

By on

Known as the daughter of Grammy winner Phil Collins, "The Mortal Instrument: City of Bones" star Lily Collins is definitely making her mark with a string of movies she is making. But the young actress is also famous for dating a number of bachelors and the face of Lancome is currently snuggling Australian actor Thomas Cocquerel.

The new couple was spotted sitting courtside at the basketball game at the Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 9 in Los Angeles. The cute Hollywood couple was watching the game between Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls.

The pair was seen holding each other hands in the entire game and looks like the two them are having a good time like lovestruck teenagers. After dating "High School Musical" actor Zac Efron, the 24-year-old actress turned her attention to the up and coming Australian actor who is currently filming his latest movie "Kidnapping of Freddy Heineken" with "Across the Universe" actor Jim Sturgess.

Last week, the new couple looked every inch  in love and smitten by each other as they made their first public appearance on Wednesday night. After a romantic dinner at West Hollywood hotspot, Lily and Thomas giggled their way into the actress' car and just couldn't stop smiling.

The actress keeps it casual and opted for a low-key look for her first official date with her new beau. She paired her black skinny jeans with a simple blush-colored knitted jumper with towering nude strappy heels.

The two met recently when a common friend introduced them and plans to keep their budding romance out of the media. "They just started seeing each other. A friend introduced them," says an insider to Us Weekly. "It's new. He is an all around great guy. She's happy."

Other than Zac Efron, Collins also dated her co-star Jamie Campbell Bower in their hit movie "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones." The two ended their relationship even though they are set to star the second installment of the movie.
