Last week, there was a brief article in Star Magazine that suggested that hot douche divorcee Ryan Phillippe was toying with lovely Amanda Seyfried, with whom he was first linked in early November. Star reported that Ryan stood Amanda up at the last minute for a planned getaway and quoted an insider who claimed he has also already “blown [her] off on a few occasions, and it just crushes her. It’s like he’s stringing her along.”
It looks like Ryan may have gotten over his initial commitment issues, as he was seen on a low-key couple-type outing with Amanda on Monday. The two went shopping together and out to a (post-coital?) lunch.
Just yesterday, the two braved the pouring L.A. rain to do some Christmas shopping and have a lunch date.
So just how serious is the new-ish couple getting?
The sparks were flying between the duo at Quality Food on 3rd St., according to an eyewitness.
“They were incognito,” a source tells me, “He was in a baseball cap and she had on a big jacket. They seemed to want to keep a super low profile but looked comfortable around each other.”
Amanda and Ryan were “laughing and flirty,” as she sipped on hot tea. After eating, the two left out the back entrance to avoid the paps outside.
“They’ve been hanging out a lot,” another source close to Ryan tells E!, “They both are surprised they haven’t been caught by the paparazzi.”
They may have managed to avoid getting papped together (for now), but we’re so on to you two! They must be getting serious if they’re out doing coupley daytime stuff, like shopping and lunching sans cocktails.
“I’m not sure if they are exclusive, but I know he likes her a lot,” the source says.
Just last week, they didn’t bother trying to hide their affection during a dinner date at Soho House.
“They were laughing and kissing the entire time,” an onlooker says.

Good for them. I can’t help thinking that it’s going to end badly for Amanda, as Ryan, 36, cheated on his then-wife Reese Witherspoon with Abbie Cornish, and then proceeded to cheat on Abbie with random women until she got fed up and dumped him. The next woman he dated briefly supposedly caught him making out with another woman – at her own birthday party. We know Amanda, 25, is attracted to jerks though, as she last dated Dominic Cooper, who cheated on her with at least a couple of different women. She deserves better, but like a lot of women she doesn’t seem to expect it.
