Cute new couple: Carter Oosterhouse & Amy Smart?


Even C-list stars fall in love. Hey, they can’t all be Brangelina.

So meet Smoosterhouse: movie actress Amy Smart of Road Trip and HGTV’s hot carpenter Carter Oosterhouse.

According to National Enquirer, the two first set off sparks this past summer.

The petite blonde and the handsome handyman met over the summer at a charity event and just months later were so close they introduced each other to their parents!

“Neither was looking for a relationship when they met. They both had just gone through breakups,” said a source. “But they hit it off and had so much in common that they couldn’t stay away from each other. It all happened so fast.”

In Mid-November, the couple was spotted in Las Vegas, taking in the Cirque du Soleil show, KA, at the MGM Grand. Later, they posed for photos with the cast of the striptease-inspired production Peepshow at Planet Hollywood.

…”Carter and Amy’s passion of helping people, animals and the environment is truly what brought them together,” added the source. “They are two of the most loving and giving people you could ever meet. I definitely see them having a solid, happy future together.”

The phrasing from Enquirer‘s “source” makes it sound like it’s from a publicist. Amy does have a film that just opened.

Both Amy and Carter are 34 and heavily involved with charities. Carter has his own charity called Carter’s Kids.

Amy ended her 15-year relationship with actor/realtor Branden Williams over the summer.

Carter is known for Trading Spaces and the ads for Nautica’s Voyage cologne. Amy Smart starred opposite Ashton Kutcher in The Butterfly Effect and James Van Der Beek in Varsity Blues.

Amy’s latest movie is called Dead Awake.

I really liked it because I felt like Omar Naim put his style all over it and he keeps you guessing until the very end about what’s happening and what’s really going on. It’s just a really interesting story about this guy who is trying to figure out his traumatic past and it’s unraveling in ways that he can’t tell what’s real and what’s not. It’s almost like he’s hallucinating through half the movie, but he’s not quite sure what’s true. It’s got a lot of different cool elements and Rose McGowan is great in it and Nick Stahl is amazing in it.

Dead Awake opened December 3.

Carter Oosterhouse can be seen on the HGTV shows Carter Can and Red Hot & Green.

    Who and who? Isn’t there some LeAnn Rimes drama you can write about?

    Oh the carpenter… How could I ever have not recognized him…

    I’m with Laura. Who and Who and Isn’t there anyone else to talk about this morning?!

    Hey, At least she writes something we can comment about. We as commoners have a bigger chance of stealing c-list Carter, than for example Brad Pitt.

    I love Carter!!! He is such a cutie and his shows are fun to watch. Well, if you like HGTV stuff. However, he’s had so many different shows that I sometimes think HGTV doesn’t know what to do with him. He doesn’t exactly have the same charisma as some of the other hosts but his shows are still interesting and informative.

    I have no clue who this Amy person is but how do you spend 15 years of your life with someone when you’re still only 34? She’s spent her entire adult life with one man. I just find that strange.

  6. Samigirl says:

    They are both pretty. Good for them. And smoosterhouse is by far the best name.

  7. Jacq says:

    Smoosterhouse – hahaha! Like them both, they’d make super cute babies!

    Carter’s such a sweetie and Amy’s really down to earth and nice. I hope it works out for them.

    I love him but I thought he played for the other team. I guess my gaydar was off.

  11. Bodhi says:

    Right on, I like them both a lot!

  12. Brittney says:

    She reminds me of Marley Shelton. And he looks a bit like her ex (whose IMDb page still has them as engaged). I wonder what the story was there…

  13. bluhare says:

    WHOA!!!! I might actually have to find HGTV and watch. Has he been on HGF?

  14. Susette says:

    I’ve always liked Amy Smart. She’s a nice person and I always thought her acting skills were usually better than the material she chose. I’m not familiar with him, but I hope it works out for her.

    He’ll be handy to have around the (Ooster)house.

  16. lu says:

  17. Kiska says:

    Hmmmm, I also sensed that Carter may be gay. Guess I was wrong!

  18. hmmm says:

    Wow, some actual happy news?! I love them both. Carter is the sweetest flirt. He’s very handsome, charming and a gentleman. Amy is adorable and the two of them together is a no-brainer, really. Awesome.
