As Austin Butler premiered his latest film, The Bikeriders directed by Jeff Nichols, on June 17 in Los Angeles, he had his girlfriend Kaia Gerber by his side supporting him.

Though the Bottoms actress, 22, didn't post for pictures on the red carpet with her heartthrob beau, 32, she was seen cheering him on not far away nonetheless, and the two even snuck in a quick kiss before heading into the TCL Chinese Theatre.

Austin — who dated Vanessa Hudgens for nearly a decade before their early 2020 split — first sparked romance rumors with the Library Science creative in December of 2021, before taking their relationship public in March 2022.

Prior to her romance with Austin, Kaia had previously dated fellow heartthrob Jacob Elordi, who is now in a relationship with Lori Loughlin's daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli, and she was also briefly linked to Pete Davidson. 

Austin and Kaia made their first major public appearance as a couple at W Magazine's annual Best Performances party on March 24, 2022, at which time they had been dating for about three months. 

That following May, they made two more appearances of which loved-up photos quickly went viral, at the Met Gala, and during the Cannes Film Festival, when Austin was promoting the Baz Luhrmann Elvis biopic.

And though their latest public appearance for The Bikeriders — which also stars Jodie Comer, Mike Faist, Tom Hardy, Norman Reedus, and Michael Shannon, among others, and premieres June 21 — didn't come produce new pics of the two, scroll below for some of the pair's cutest PDA-packed photos.
