Best Actress nominee Jessica Chastain stepped out in public with her boyfriend, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulofor the first time this weekend. They arrived together at Fig & Olive in Hollywood for the Women in Film pre-Oscars party.

She recently told Katie Couric that she did have a boyfriend, but wouldn't name him. "But I will say I have a rule I don't date actors, so he's not in the business, at all...He’s in the fashion industry." De Preposulo is an executive at Moncler.

Chastain also told InStyle UK a while back, "No actors. I have dated an actor before, at Juilliard, but since then, I’ve only been on a couple of dates with one and I was so freaked out someone was going to take a picture of us, because they were famous." Despite this, she's been linked with Tom Hiddleston in the past.

Maybe she'll bring de Preposulo as her date tonight?
