He looks old enough to be her father, is so badly turned out he could be accused of not owning a mirror, and carries a skateboard to perhaps retain a sense of his youth.
But believe it all not this grey-haired man, who appears to be stuck in a timewarp has someone managed to tempt 26-year-old actress Paz de la Huerta.
The Boardwalk Empire didn’t seem to care who was watching today as she shared a very public embrace with the mystery man in New York City.
Public display: Paz de la Huerta and an older mystery man shared a kiss after dining out in New York’s West Village today
The 26-year-old star cosied up to her new squeeze after they dined out in the city’s trendy West Village.
As they embraced on the street, the pair seemed oblivious to passers by.
Over lunch, Paz didn’t seem to be able to keep her hands off her bearded companion, at one point, leaning forward and grabbing his hand while he spoke on the phone.
The couple looked distinctly different, with the man dressed in a shirt and trousers and clutching a skateboard under his arm.
Sweet whispers: The couple maintained their closeness as they dined al fresco in the New York sunshine
Hands on: The unlikely couple walked along with their arms linked
Paz, meanwhile, showed off her slim figure in a tight black mini skirt, lacy black and white top and mustard heel.
The star, who has been previously been spotted out with Jack Nicholson, perhaps has a taste for older men.
She will soon be reprising her role in Boardwalk Empire as showgirl Lucy Danzinger, former girlfriend of Steve Buscemi’s character Nucky Thompson.
‘Audiences are going to see more of the real her,’ she has said of her character in the new series. ‘It’s going to be very different.’
