Steven Bauer has been seen hitting the town with girlfriend Lyda Loudon, a “journalist, activist and film guru” who just happens to be about four decades younger than him.
The 57-year-old Ray Donovan star has been dating the 18-year-old Loudon for the past few months, attending the premiere of Magic in the Moonlight together back in July. They were again spotted together this week, proving that their relationship has at least stood the intense media scrutiny of when the first went public.

Though she is only 18, Lyda Loudon has already accomplished a lot. She founded the L3 Foundation, an organization that encourages older generations connect with Millenials.
The foundation’s site noted:
L3 is about driving this thing we call life with a philosophy and strategies that make “Prime Time” more than we ever thought it could be. The Prime Time journey encourages L3 members to immerse themselves in life in new and different ways. They are encouraged to challenge who they are as human beings, because the mindset of just easing to the tape at the end of the race doesn’t make sense. L3 supports this point of view by…
But to say that Steven Bauer could be a father to girlfriend Lyda Loudon might actually be an understatement. Bauer’s son Alexander is actually still a decade older than Lyda.
