The Cotten Kandi website has just gotten word that actors Taraji P. Henson and Michael Ealy are dating!
An eyewitness reports, the ‘Think Like A Man’ co-stars were spotted during a recent outing at a basketball game at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. They entered the arena through a private entrance and, although they tried to be discrete, they were caught kissing! The couple seemed to have been enjoying each others company, sitting close and canoodling.
Henson and Ealy, are believed to have gotten pretty close while filming newly released film, ‘Think Like A Man’, and if you were among the millions of people who saw the film this weekend, you’ll know, their chemistry was bursting through the screen.
The news shouldn’t come as a surprise, however. Both actors have had some very kind words to say about each other during some recent interviews.
During his interview with BET.com, Ealy had this to say on working with his co-star, “We have talked for years about us working together — the two dramatic actors that we are coming together to do something powerful — and we came together to do a comedy. Working with Taraji day in and day out, there’s nothing she can’t handle. Anything that I threw at her in a scene she just knocked it out of the park. She’s so dope,” he gushes. “That’s the only word that can describe her. I hope that we get to do more projects together, I really do. She’s phenomenal.”
And although the actor declared recently that he wasn’t fond of social media, it was Miss Taraji who was more than eager to welcome him on Twitter. She (@therealtaraji) wrote, “*clearing throat* Ahem Ahem…LADIES & gentlemen @michaelealy is FINALLY among the twitter verse. Welcome him w/ a follow! #TellemIsentyou”
His responded with, “@TherealTaraji I owe u ma! U made me a better actor on screen in this one. Thanks for all the fans u sent me. I see them too!”
Henson also gushed about working with her co-star during a promo run on the ‘Sway In The Morning’ radio show. Listen below.
She was just too cute for saying, “He’s Foin!”. Lol
For the moment we’ll have to call this one a rumor but if true, we would love to see these two as a couple! How adorable would that be!
We’ll keep you posted.
