Not only does their acting make Canada proud, but True Detective costars Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch are also one of the hottest couples to come out of the Great White North. After sparking rumours with a dinner date last month, sources have confirmed to Us Weekly that the attractive actors are dating.
The news comes after Rachel and Taylor were spotted dining at West Hollywood's Osteria Mozza on June 2. “It hasn’t been long,” an insider revealed. “But it’s serious.” The fellow Canucks - she from London, Ontario; he from Kelowna, B.C. - just wrapped the second season of the HBO drama and "grew closer on set" after having been "friends for years" , according to a source.
Rachel is no stranger to falling in love on set. She famously had a relationship with her The Notebook costar, Ryan Gosling, and later fell for Masters of Sex star Michael Sheen, whom she met while shooting Midnight in Paris. “A set may seem like a good place for romance, but I don’t think it’s very conducive ; it’s too distracting,” she told Glamour. “Every relationship I’ve had with a coworker comes after the fact.”
It seems the 36-year-old is sticking to her dating tradition, as her romance with Taylor, 34, is likely to have heated up once the show had already wrapped - and the actor had called it quits with fitness instructor Jennifer Welch. “I don’t know if it’s full-blown love yet, but they talk constantly,” another source confirmed. “They’re really into each other. She talks about him all the time!”

The blond beauty can also be seen in the Cameron Crowe ensemble film Aloha, as well as boxing drama Southpaw, opposite Jake Gyllenhaal.
