Are Luke Wilson and Helen Hunt a hot new couple!?
Nope—not at all actually, both are in happy, long-term relationships—but looking at pics of the pair may lead you to believe they are!
The two were spotted at the Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel filming their upcoming flick, Ride!
It was announced in late July that Helen, 50, would star, direct and produce a surfing flick that she also wrote—which was eventually revealed to be Ride. Filming began a few days later in Venice Beach.
According to Deadline, the movie is about a 20-year-old NYU student (played by Brenton Thwaites) who ditches school and his mom (Hunt) in New York for California; upon finding out that he’s hitting the waves rather than hitting the books, she follows him across the country.
In California, she meets a surf instructor (Wilson) who “brings her to life in everyway” and both mother and son “find their own version of love, sex and an unexpected state of grace in a most unlikely place,” Deadline writes.
Surfer bods, self discovery, and a romantic plot? Consider us hooked!
Ride is expected to hit theaters in November 2014.
