Casey Affleck Reacts to Winning His First Golden Globe
It’s cuffing season and Casey Affleck has found himself a new love.
The Manchester By the Sea actor, who is known for keeping details of his personal life private, took to Instagram to reveal that he’s in a relationship with actress, Caylee Cowan.
On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, the Oscar winner gushed over the Willy’s Wonderland star and shared candid snapshots of their hang out, in which they both donated blood to the Red Cross.
“@cayleecowan showed up,” Casey captioned part of his Instagram. “She is not on the Love’s active roster [the baseball team he plays for], but she is MY Love, and she ALWAYS shows up when it counts.”
He continued, “However Caylee is usually unenthused about needles, blood, etc, and though she believably feigned nonchalance all the way to the donation location, once on the table with her sleeve rolled up, she was overheard quietly asking a staff member, ‘Is there a chance I might die?’ The answer was no, of course.”
Casey also praised some of his Love teammates and their significant others who donated blood to the nonprofit organization, including Mets pitcher Brian Nichol, designer Kody McCarty and actor Jon Hamm.
“First baseman, and all around real life superman, @jonhamm_officially was in the house to give his incredible DNA to someone who might need it,” he shared, before quipping, “[I asked if I could have some of Jon’s blood, and if it would make me better looking, but I was told ‘No, and probably not.’]”
Caylee also raved over Casey, commenting on his post, “I love you so much.”
The couple’s relationship announcement comes just a couple of days after they were spotted getting cozy together during an outing in Los Angeles on Tuesday, Nov. 23, per photos obtained by Page Six. In the images, the two didn’t shy away from packing on the PDA, as they were seen holding each other close and passionately sharing a kiss.
Casey was in a longtime romance with Supergirl star Floriana Lima, whom he reportedly began dating in 2016 shortly after splitting from his ex-wife Summer Phoenix. While it’s unknown when exactly Casey and Floriana called it quits, it’s clear the actor has moved on.
