Lily and Rupert, best known for his starring role as Ron Weasley in the "Harry Potter" films, were seen leaving a restaurant together, the Daily Star reported. Their being spotted together quickly sparked dating rumors.
"Lily met Rupert at the Order Of The Phoenix premiere last year where they swapped numbers and have texted each other quite regularly," the Daily Star quoted a source as saying. "After Lily's split from Ed things changed. Rupert offered Lily a shoulder to cry on and she's taken it." The source added, "They get on really well and he makes her laugh. Last week they enjoyed a Japanese meal together in North London. Rupert drove Lily to the restaurant in his black mini and sheltered her from prying eyes. She is still dealing with the terrible start to the year she's had to face, losing her baby and splitting with Ed, but these two would really work as a couple."
