Jack Nicholson's son, Ray, 32, is following in his father's footsteps with his passion for acting.. and his love of beautiful women. 

The dashing star recently stepped out to enjoy the buzz of the Academy Awards and he brought along his very famous girlfriend. 

Posing on the red carpet of the Vanity Fair Oscars party, Ray beamed alongside Victoria's Secret model, Sara Sampaio, who looked equally as smitten as her date.

Ray looked a lot like a younger version of his famous father in a grey suit and silk shirt, while Sara stunned in a strapless, burgundy and black Zuhair Murad gown.

They wrapped their arms around one another while posing for photos and both threw their heads back in laughter as they lapped up the attention. 

The couple have been dating since July 2023 and while they've been photographed out and about, their latest outing marked their red carpet debut.

In a 2010 interview with AARPMagazine, Jack opened up about fatherhood and his close bond with Ray and Lorraine when he said:  "We've always gotten along. I want to be inspirational, or some kind of good influence on them without overburdening them. It's their time of life to find out who they are."

Jack then added: "I always read to them, from childhood on; I think that's a father's responsibility. I took them to things I knew they might not love; opera, ballet. They like going to the ball games with me. And they are very comfortable around show business; they are good set rats."
