Model and actress Lydia Hearst is dating “Entourage” star Kevin Connolly, but the way the pair met is somewhat surprising.
“The Face” judge stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday, where she revealed how she and her beau initially connected.
“We met through mutual friends and Facebook,” she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover.
“He hit you up on Facebook!?” Kit asked.
“Actually, I think I might’ve hit him up,” Lydia laughed. “It was a while ago. It’s been over a year.”
Adding, “But I love him to death and I’m very happy.”
And while she’s a big fan of her beau – his TV show? Not so much. Despite the enormous popularity of “Entourage,” Lydia said has yet to watch an episode.
“I have to admit I have not seen ‘Entourage,’ but I know they’re filming an amazing movie right now,” she said. “And he’s a huge fan of ‘The Face.’”
And the model answered a burning question for Billy: is she taller than Kevin?
“He’s taller than me. I’m always in very, very high platform heels,” she said. “I round up, so I would say I’m 5’ 7”.”
Catch Lydia on “The Face” with Naomi Campbell and Anne V — Wednesdays at 10 PM on Oxygen.
