Actress Kristin Davis has confirmed her relationship with Aaron Sorkin by sharing a kiss with the screenwriter on the red carpet at the premiere of ‘The Newsroom,’ on Wednesday.
Davis, 47, who is best known for her role as Charlotte York Goldenblatt in HBO’s Sex in the City, was first linked to Sorkin, 51, last month and friends say she is smitten with him after dating for six weeks.
“They are really happy,” a source told E! News in May. “They have actually known each other a while through mutual friends and would sometimes bump into one another at industry events, but it has only just turned into something more.”
The source added: “He is obviously really smart … and Kristin is very intelligent, too. They have a lot to talk about.”
OTRC reports that both Davis and Sorkin are both single parents – the actress adopted a baby girl, Gemma Rose, in 2011 and the screenwriter has an 11-year-old daughter, Roxy, from a previous marriage.
The Newsroom, which Sorkin (The Social Network, Moneyball) is creator and executive producer of, is a drama which focuses on a prime time cable news anchor, played by Jeff Daniels. Other cast members include Emily Mortimer, Alison Pill, Dev Patel, John Gallagher, Jr., Olivia Munn, Thomas Sadoski, and Sam Waterston.
“I have great respect for the guys who actually sit behind that desk and have to read that teleprompter and are able to do it without screwing up words,” Daniels told OTRC at the premiere. “It’s not as easy as it looks.”
