Elle recently wrapped filming of season two of The Great

Elle, 23, and Max became romantically involved after meeting on the set of the 2018 film Teen Spirit, which was written and directed by Max.

The couple were first linked in July 2018 when they were seen holding hands in Florence, Italy, and made their relationship public when they walked the red carpet together at the 2019 Met Gala in New York.

No doubt, they got to spend some quality time together over the summer too.
