Last month the American Sniper star and the Russian beauty were seen on Broadway, sitting together in the audience of Finding Neverland. Bradley, 40, and Irina, 29, have apparently known each other for a long time after being introduced by mutual friends, and have been “hanging out" for a while.

New photos of the good-looking pair show the lovebirds strolling the streets of New York, while also attending a state White House dinner together. According to eye witnesses, Bradley and Irina chatted away and looked to be enjoying each other’s company throughout the evening.

The Oscar nominee was previously in a relationship with British model Suki Waterhouse for two years, but the pair split in February of this year. Their break-up was only made public the following month and it seems Bradley and Suki are still good friends.
