Actress Chloe Grace Moretz has sparked rumours she has moved on from dating soccer star David Beckham's eldest son Brooklyn after she was photographed holding hands with a U.S. college student. The Kick-Ass star reportedly began dating Beckham earlier this year (14) after meeting him at Paris Fashion Week, but editors at Britain's Daily Mirror reported the relationship was just casual because of the distance between them - Beckham's base is in London and Georgia native Moretz's home is in the U.S.
The Carrie star never confirmed the relationship, but earlier this month (Aug14), she and Beckham were photographed at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles together and on Wednesday (20Aug14), he showed up to the premiere of her new film If I Stay.
However, on Thursday (21Aug14), she was spotted hand-in-hand with New York University student Julian Moraes, and sources tell the New York Daily News they are now a couple.
In a recent interview, Moretz revealed she was hoping to land a place at NYU when her home schooling studies are over.

A source tells the magazine the couple was celebrating its anniversary in the same country where they first met, while attending supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt's 2011 wedding near Rome.
The insider reveals Rothschild, who flew from his home in England to the U.S. to ask Hilton's parents for her hand in marriage before the trip, proposed during a boat trip on Lake Como, where George Clooney owns a retreat.
The source says, "It was incredibly romantic and beautiful."
Hilton and Rothschild are reportedly celebrating their engagement with a road trip through Europe.
Fashion designer Hilton, the younger sister of Paris, previously dated DreamWorks studio boss David Katzenberg for four years, and was briefly married to childhood friend and businessman Todd Andrew Meister in 2004.
Italy has become 2014's romance destination for celebrities - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West wed in Florence earlier this summer, and George Clooney will wed his fiancee Amal Alamuddin in Italy next month (Sep14), according to reports.
Famed celebrity snapper Peter Beard is facing a lawsuit from model Natalie White over claims he broke a promise to give her 50 signed photos from a shoot. Beard, who has shot classic pictures of rock icons including The Rolling Stones and David Bowie, is being sued over allegations he failed to hand over the images, which have a potential value of millions of dollars.
White claims he vowed to give her 50 signed photos from two shoots but he only handed over 16 before suffering a stroke in November (13), and she blames the lensman's wife for withholding the remaining images.
She is adamant she agreed the deal with Beard as recompense for organising models for the shoot, and had spent more than $100,000 (£58,800) of her savings on expenses, according to the New York Daily News.
Among the beauties who took part were Helena Christensen, Chanel Iman, and Pamela Anderson.
Britney Spears was left embarrassed on Sunday (13Jul14) after forgetting to pay a restaurant bill following a mix-up with her security guard. The Toxic hitmaker enjoyed a light lunch with her boyfriend David Lucado at The Cheesecake Factory in Thousand Oaks, California and told her waitress the $30 (£18) bill would be picked up by her bodyguard.
She and Lucado then left the eatery, but her guard assumed the meal had been paid for and did not return to hand over the cash.
Spears was later made aware of the mix up and has since settled her debt with the restaurant.
Her representative tells TMZ.com the singer feels "horrible" about what she insists was an honest mistake.
Victoria and David Beckham's son Brooklyn has landed an internship at the production office of British film director Guy Ritchie. The 15 year old has already tried out for a professional soccer team, modelled for a magazine, and picked up a weekend job in a local cafe, and now he is trying his hand at filmmaking by working alongside Madonna's ex-husband Ritchie in London.
The couple reportedly used their connections with the Snatch director to secure the work experience placement for their son.
A source tells Usmagazine.com, "He has been trying out a number of jobs, including the Starbucks job. It's all part of him experiencing all walks of life and really working out what he wants to do. Victoria and David are keen for him to experience the things they did when they were his age - retail jobs, assistant jobs, working for free. They want to keep him grounded."
Married actors David Duchovny and Tea Leoni appear to have rekindled their on/off romance on a family vacation. The X-Files star, 53, initially separated from Leoni in 2008 after 11 years of marriage as Duchovny underwent therapy for sex addiction. They later reconciled, but split once again in 2011.
Neither actor filed for divorce, but the pair, which has two children, seemed to be moving on from the failed relationship last year (13) by putting its marital home in New York up for sale.
However, a new report in America's Star magazine suggests Duchovny and Leoni, 48, are giving their marriage another chance and they recently put their love on display during a getaway to the Big Apple's Fire Island retreat.
An eyewitness tells the publication, "They were smiling and cuddling up with one another. They walked hand-in-hand and shared a kiss.
"They seemed like the perfect family."
The stars are parents to 15-year-old daughter Madelaine and 12-year-old son Kyd.
It's a truth almost universally acknowledged that Aquaman isn't very cool. The co-founding member of the Justice League and the King of Atlantis gets a pretty bad rap from most people, and it's easy to see why. To most outward appearances, he's pretty useless out of the water, and unless it's unseasonably humid, you'd probably rather have Superman by your side in a land battle. Aquaman might not have the best reputation as of now, but things look to be turning around for the hero. After months of talks, the former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa has signed on to play Aquaman in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. At first glance, Momoa doesn't seem to be a good fit for Aquaman. The muscular actor skyrocketed to fame playing the imposing and deadly Khal Drogo on Game of Thrones, but there's nothing terribly imposing about the DC swimmer. He's usually clad in a bright stretchy orange jumpsuit with scales, and sports finely coifed blond hair. But we're thinking this version of Aquaman will take some inspiration from a different version of the character.
The 1990s did some terrible things to comic books. Many of our favorite characters were changed for the worse, and some were even given updated costumes dripping in misguided turn-of-the-century angst. In fact, the entire industry almost folded in on itself after the comic book market collapsed. But while these dark times almost killed superhero comics altogether, they did wonders for Aquaman. That extra dose of angst was actually good for the character; writer Peter David took the underwater boy scout and turned him into a rough burly seaman with a hook for a hand, a fierce mane of hair, and a new badass disposition. Now the King of the Seas actually looked the part.
This was a character for a new age of readers. One that inspired fear and respect, and one that is mostly unknown to those that didn't spend their formative years in the nose of a comic book. While most people laugh at the very idea of Aquaman, it's easy to imagine Momoa stepping into this version of the character, especially after watching Khal Drogo terrorize the great plains of Essos in Game of Thrones.
But even without the cool updated look, Aquaman has always been as cool as it gets. That's right, we said it, Aquaman is cool. Sure, the outfit is silly, but every superhero outfit is silly when you think about it (Batman is running around in stubby bat ears yelling about his no parents and he gets eight movies). This is a character that controls the earth's waters, and the last time we checked, the earth was made up of 80 % of that stuff. He also has an entire kingdom of sea creatures as his beck and call. No, not just little guppys and jelly fish but giant squids, sharks, andwhatever ancient beasts are still lyind dormant in the depths of the ocean. He could probably pop out a Kraken if he really tried. On top of all this, he still has super strength, even on land. We think he easily earns his place on the Justice League.
These days, the Aquaman in the comics has since reverted the character back to a more classic look, but if Momoa's casting is any indication, the upcoming film will take many of its cues from the burly '90s Aquaman. In any case, Aquaman is a hero that deserves a second assessment, and it looks like Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice might reintroduce the character to a generation of naysayers. Resist all you want, but we're betting a few of you might have a new favorite hero once 2016 rolls around.
Britain's Prime Minister David Cameron has waded into a row over J.K. Rowling's donation to an anti-Scottish independence campaign after she was bombarded with abuse online. The Harry Potter author took the controversial step to hand $1.6 million (£1 million) of her own money to the Better Together Campaign ahead of a referendum in September (14) on whether Scotland should leave the U.K.
Rowling, who lives in Edinburgh, explained she fears the country could be left isolated and its economy irreversibly damaged if it breaks free of England, Wales and Northern Ireland, but she received a huge backlash on social media.
Scottish nationalists took to Twitter.com in their droves to slam multi-millionaire Rowling, accusing her of being a crony of the British elite and claiming she had no right to tackle the topic as she is English.
Now Cameron, whose Conservative party Rowling opposes, has spoken out to denounce the online anger, insisting there is "never any place for abusive behavior in whatever sphere of life".
Rowling is yet to comment on the abuse, but in an article on her official website, she explains her decision to hand over the money in detail, writing, "It is because I love this country that I want it to thrive. Whatever the outcome of the referendum on 18th September, it will be a historic moment for Scotland. I just hope with all my heart that we never have cause to look back and feel that we made a historically bad mistake."
British TV icon Sir David Jason has passed a series of "vigorous" medical tests to retain his pilot's licence. The Only Fools and Horses star, 74, who mostly flies helicopters, has held his licence since 2005 and has to regularly prove his fitness in order to keep his permit.
Jason admits he recently underwent a battery of medical tests and was delighted when he passed, despite his advancing years.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "Touch wood, I'm in good health. Long may it continue. I've just had a vigorous medical as part of my pilot's licence and, hand on heart, I passed everything, which is nice to know. I know some people become infirm in their later years but so far I've been very lucky."
After Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart gobsmacked critics and audiences alike with its unflinching look at the affect of AIDS on the gay community, HBO has picked up yet another period piece detailing the struggles of gays in New York.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, HBO has picked up the script for Open City, a period piece that profiles New York in the late 60's. The drama, from writer David Kajganich and director Adam Shankman, will reportedly follow a diverse set of characters from all corners of Manhattan, as they navigate a city going through a cultural metamorphosis. The project will also examine the gay community's unlikely partnership with New York's mafia with the opening of a West Village night club.
Ever since the critical success of AMC's Mad Men, the television landscape has been littered with period dramas claiming to "explore" a place and time in the past, but all those imitators stumbled when they found that they had nothing of substance to really say about their given era. While Mad Men was having a deep discussion about the cultural mores of the sixties, all of those other pretenders (The Playboy Club, Magic City, Pan AM... the list goes on) were just playing dress up. Open City, on the other hand, looks to have some very important things to say about the time period and the city it depicts, and this project may fill a very big hole once Mad Men wraps up its seventh season.
With the success of projects like Looking and The Normal Heart, HBO is quietly becoming the destination for gay-themed television. There was a time where TV would sideline gay characters, only featuring them as broad stereotypes, but HBO has begun crafting interesting, and unpatronizing glimpses at the characters and stories that have been sorely missing from our television sets.
