“I had gotten to a place where… I was comfortable with myself, I was ready to be – I didn’t know it at the time – but I was ready for this one,” he told the former Bachelor, 41, who is happily dating Sarah Partain.

He continued, “I want [talk about it], but I also want to be protective. I want to shout it from the rooftops, but I also want to be protective. It is sacred.

Yet Long did not mention Bosworth by name. This interview comes just four months after the He’s Just Not That Into You actor revealed on another podcast that he was no longer in the market.

Shortly after, PageSix discovered that the new lady in his life was actress Kate Bosworth, with whom he made a movie in 2021.

Earlier that year, the blonde beauty announced her separation from her husband of 51 years, Michael Polish.

In May, she took to Instagram about Justin when they finished the film: ‘Holy moly @justinlong you are so spectacular/funny/funny/kind/rare/thoughtful/totally. f*kn. great human being.

She added: “THANK YOU for lifting us up…you kept it light and full of laughs every day, even in the toughest times. You’re a gnome how much I love you (sorry I had to To do ;).’

And an insider told the site that this fall he accompanied the beauty on her trip to the Pädaste mansion in Estonia. They would have spent a “romantic weekend”.

Justin then confirmed his relationship status on his podcast in December while discussing the controversial pineapple pizza topping with comedian Fortune Feimster.

Speaking on his ‘Life is Short with Justin Long’ podcast, the actor said when asked to give his favorite topping: “It’s controversial: pineapple.”

To which Justin replied, “People have been saying that lately. Funny, my girlfriend said hers was — she loves pineapple too. I’ve never been with someone who likes pineapple on pizza.

A source later told Us Weekly: “They’ve been dating for a few months now. They’ve secretly been on a few getaways together. They both love to travel.

Adding that the couple “doesn’t hide the fact that they’re together,” they “just keep it low key and private about their relationship.”

Kate and Justin moved quickly and are already said to be living together.

Long has previously been linked to Amanda Seyfried, Kirsten Dunst and Drew Barrymore.

Kate and her ex Michael were last pictured together in January 2021. The pair met in 2011 while filming the adventure drama Big Sur, which she starred in and which he directed.

Kate and Michael announced their engagement in August 2012 and were married on August 31, 2013 at the Ranch at Rock Creek in Philipsburg, Montana.
