Two of Hollywood’s hot young actors have been spotted having gelato on the South Coast.
Canberra’s Mia Wasikowska was seen on Tuesday at the Bermagui Gelati Clinic with rumoured boyfriend Jesse Eisenberg, who starred in The Social Network.
They have reportedly been seeing each other since the middle of the year and have been photographed getting affectionate in locations from Toronto to Venice.
The ‘‘quirky couple’’ also appear together in the comedy thriller The Double.
Wasikowska, 24, was obviously showing New York-born-and-raised Eisenberg, 30, the hidden delights of Canberra’s summer playground, the beautiful South Coast. She is a confirmed major talent in Hollywood, with a string of films to her name and most recently filming the starring role inMadam Bovary, in France.
And despite one keen-eyed fan posting on Facebook about seeing the couple in Bermagui, they have managed to kick back without too many people recognising them. They seem to like to dress down and do their best not to attract attention.
The Bermagui Gelati Clinic owner Alberto Cementon said that if the two stars had been in his shop, he wasn’t aware.
‘‘I was pretty busy yesterday,’’ he said.
‘‘I probably wouldn’t recognise them anyway. I’ve got little kids and haven’t been to the cinema in about nine years.’’
But if you’d like a taste of what the stars were after, we are told the Gelati Clinic will be open on Boxing Day and chocolate and mango are the two most popular flavours. Gelato is also obviously a bonding agent for Wasikowska and Eisenberg, also photographed enjoying some on the streets of Toronto in July.
