David Harbour Fell In Love With Lily Allen After Meeting Her On Dating App

But there are two versions of the story of how they met: the fake but totally plausible version, and the true but seemingly unlikely version.
The lie is that they met each other backstage at a talk show, the truth is that they connected on a dating app.
Speaking to GQ Hype, 47-year-old Harbour said: "I was in London alone, doing Black Widow, on this app, going on dates and stuff.
"And yeah, I started texting with her, she was in Italy at the time — we got together, went on a date at The Wolseley, and it was, you know, she's f***ing unbelievable."
N'awww, bless him. Who'd have thought a celebrity romance could be born on a dating app, eh? Stranger things have happened, I suppose.
It's worth pointing out though that they didn't meet on Tinder or Bumble - they were on Raya, an exclusive app that members have to apply to get on, which is understandably a favourable alternative for celebs.
Recalling when they first fell for each other, Harbour continued: "She claims to have fallen in love at first sight with me — I mean, who wouldn't?
"I remember the exact moment. It was our third date. I was just in this phase, where I was like, I'm just going to be brutally honest about everything, because why lie? And I told her something about my life, about my beliefs.
"It would take a really extraordinary person to be accepting of the things that I said. And I remember thinking: 'Wow, that's somebody I want to be around.'"
Allen recently made headlines at Glastonbury Festival when she joined Olivia Rodrigo on stage for a rendition of her 2009 hit song 'F*** You', which she dedicated to the members of the US Supreme Court involved in ending the country's constitutional right to abortion.
In a subsequent Instagram post, the 37-year-old wrote: "I wish people would stop posting examples of exceptional reasons for having abortions.
"Most people I know, myself included, just didn't want to have a f****** baby. And that is reason enough! We don't have to justify it.
"It shouldn't have to be said, and I think all these examples just play into the hands of the baddies."
