Miley and Patrick, both 21, were photographed locking lips while her handsome beau snapped a selfie.

Their romance is still young, but the pair already seem infatuated. Just the previous evening, they were spotted huddled together outside a cinema after a screening of Still Alice in Hollywood.

Patrick – the handsome son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver – has had a long-time crush on singer Miley.

Patrick Schwarzenegger and Miley Cyrus are said to have been quietly dating for ‘several months’

The couple are thought to have had a brief romance later in 2011, while Miley was on a break from her then-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth. They then reconnected this year, with insiders telling US Weekly that the stars have been quietly dating for "several months".

“They have been friends for a long time,” a source said. “They have a ton of common friends, so they have run in the same circles for years.”

“She thinks he’s hot, she thinks he’s cool,” a friend of Miley’s told US. “Patrick is a nice good guy. He’s grown up in Hollywood just like her and it was only a matter of time before they hooked up.”
