Timothee Chalamet, Jeremy Allen White, Tom Blyth; if 2023 taught us anything it’s that our chronically online generation will find great joy in obsessing over their favourite boys in Hollywood. And whilst it may be fun and silly – it’s also fleeting.

Does the term ‘hot boy of the month’ ring a bell? That best describes the phenomena when talented (and good-looking) celebs in Hollywood become the ‘it’ celeb of the moment… before they are quickly replaced by the next, and the next and the next. 

Sure, it’s nothing new. But it’s pretty obvious in recent years that our attention span is getting well, shorter. But why focus on the negatives? Instead, we’re focusing on the latest actor getting the fan-edit treatment: Callum Turner.

The actor was already making headlines thanks to his starring roles in The Boys In The Boat and the upcoming Apple TV series Masters of the Air. And now, he’s captured fans’ attention thanks to his romance with Dua Lipa.

The pair were first linked at the premiere of Masters of the Air on January 10 – before stepping out and confirming their romance with a dinner date on January 17. 

The couple were spotted kissing as they left the LA hotspot. And honestly, we’re obsessed with this new it-couple of Hollywood (and the UK).

Who is Callum Turner’s girlfriend?

Although a romance between the couple has not officially been confirmed, Callum Turner has most recently been linked to singer Dua Lipa.

Prior to his rumoured romance with Dua, Callum previously dated The Crown star Vanessa Kirby from 2015 to 2020. The two met while starring together in 2014’s Queen and Country but kept many details of their relationship quiet. 

Following their split, a source told The Sun that the pair “gradually [grew] apart” as their careers started taking off, but that it was “all very amicable.”

Since then Callum has not dated anyone publically, however, some publications and fans have linked him to co-stars including Zoe Kravitz and Anya Taylor-Joy but the rumours were never confirmed.

In 2023 rumours emerged suggesting Callum was dating model and actress Matilda Lowther after they were seen at various events together, however, neither party have confirmed the reports.
