Jackson White and Grace Van Patten appear to be taking their romance offscreen. After much speculation, the stars of Hulu’s steamy romance drama “Tell Me Lies” seemed to confirm that they’re dating in real life when they stepped out hand in hand at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York on Nov. 7.
While reps for the actors did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for comment, White — who is the son of Katey Sagal and Jack White — shared a photo booth picture on his Instagram Stories of him and Van Patten that same night. In one of the snaps, it looks like they might be kissing, however, their faces are covered by an emoji.
The following day, the pair further fueled speculation when White posted a picture of him and Van Patten kissing on Instagram, captioning it, “if we kiss can we get a s2 @hulu.”
When POPSUGAR spoke to White back in October, the actor said he has “a huge crush” on Van Patten after we mentioned that Van Patten previously said he was her crush in real life.
Based on Carola Lovering’s 2018 novel of the same name, “Tell Me Lies” unpacks the toxic romance between college students Lucy Albright (Van Patten) and Stephen DeMarco (Jackson White), which takes place over the course of eight years. As of now, the 10-episode series has not been renewed for a second season, but Van Patten and White would love to return if it does. “We’re just waiting,” Van Patten told POPSUGAR in regard to a possible second installment in September. “Season one ends in such a way where there’s so much to be filled in, and I would love to see what happens within those eight years, because as of now, it’s a mystery.”
Van Patten previously dated Nat Wolff from 2017 to 2021, while White prefers to keep his dating life out of the spotlight.
