Michael C. Hall has new, young girlfriend: she looks like Julia Stiles, right?

These are some photos of Michael C. Hall at the Emmys on Sunday. Michael was showing – debuting – his new girlfriend. This is his first “official” girlfriend since he and Jennifer Carpenter split up last year. Back then, there were rumors that Michael was fooling around with Julia Stiles, and over the past year, we’ve heard stuff about Michael with random young women, as well as a possible reconciliation with Carpenter. But now he has a new, official girlfriend and we know she’s official because he brought her to the Emmys. Is it just me or does she looks very young? Is it just me or does she look like Julia Stiles? SKETCHY.

Michael C. Hall picked a very special occasion to introduce his new girlfriend, Morgan Macgregor, to the world!

The Dexter actor, 41, brought the tattooed blonde book critic to the 64th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in L.A. September 23. The couple held hands on the red carpet and packed on the PDA once they got inside. “They’re totally together and cute,” an onlooker tells Us Weekly.

According to Macgregor’s official website, she “likes public radio, lattes and doing her makeup in public.” She’s also “working on a novel and plans to open a bookstore called Dead or Alive.”

Hall, who suited up in Paul Smith, was married to his Dexter costar Jennifer Carpenter, 32, from 2008 to 2011. Though they were spotted looking cozy in February 2012, an insider assured Us the actors “are just good friends. Their divorce was the most amicable in the world.”

Indeed, during a 2011 interview with Entertainment Tonight, Carpenter admitted Hall will always have a place in her heart. “He is and always will be one of my best friends in the world,” said the actress, who helped nurse Hall through a battle with lymphoma. “And just because the marriage ended doesn’t mean the love isn’t still there.”

Her website also says she’s “an Associate Editor at the Los Angeles Review of Books.” Which is an impressive title, actually. I still can’t find her age… but I’m guessing she’s under the age of 30, right? Maybe even closer to 25? Too young for a 41-year-old man? Ugh. I don’t know. It feels like we’ve been talking about age differences too much lately – my take is almost always “It’s not just about the age, but also the maturity level.” As for Michael… I think he just likes women in their 20s. He gets older, but they stay the same age.

    Is it just me, or is she kind of not adorable?

  2. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    I’m sorry, but he is soooo gay.

  3. Agnes says:

    i thought he was back with his ex wife – guess not.

  4. marie says:

    She looks like a cross between Stiles and Ellen Page..

  5. lucy2 says:

    I see more Fiona Apple than Julia Stiles.

  6. Hubbahun says:

    No, she doesn’t. At all.

  7. Samigirl says:

    Doing her makeup in public? Sounds like they copy and pasted from a match.com profile.

    • Krill says:

      How is doing your makeup in public a “like”? Sounds like she’s trying to come off as eccentric, or something. Groom yourself at home…

    I still don’t believe anything ever happened between Julia Stiles and Michael C. Hall. The only proof ever offered to support the alleged affair was Lainey’s second-hand report from some random crew member on the “Dexter” set who said he saw Hall looking at Julia’s butt. Oh and ‘someone’ told ‘someone’ that ‘someone’ saw them at a NYC Halloween party during the same time they were taping the last three episodes of “Dexter” Season 5.

    At the time, no one (especially Lainey) knew that the reason Carpenter and Hall were seemingly at odds on the set wasn’t because of Julia Stiles, but because Hall and Carpenter had separated in early August of that year.

    I felt so sorry for Stiles. It was the first time she’d ever been nominated for industry awards, and instead of basking in the glow and enjoying the experience, the event was overshadowed by all the rumors and speculation started by Lainey’s gossip. Every ‘Michael C. Hall Cheated with Julia Stiles’ Internet story at the time had Lainey’s initial gossip at its center.

    I’ve read on some other site that she’s almost 30. Poster in the comment section claimed she/he knows her, but I don’t know if that’s true. She really does look young, like she could be even in her early twenties but it isn’t any indicator. Alexis Bledel is 31 and she doesn’t look one day over 20.
    I don’t see Julia in her. More like a mix between Fiona Apple and Evan Rachel Wood.

  10. PrettyTarheel says:

    *sigh* Is it wrong that I look at her and think bulimia jaw? It’s too early, I got no sleep, and there isn’t enough caffeine in my IV drip yet.

    • Melly Bee says:

      Good Morning! Not to be a bother, but what is “Bulimia jaw”? Is it like “Anorexia cheekbones”? I’m being totally serious, I do not know. Thanks for helping!

      • PrettyTarheel says:


        Kate Bosworth is another good example. It’s a swelling, square-jawed, almost “chipmunk-cheek” look that’s common among bulimics.

        Please note, I’m not saying she IS bulimic, just that her jawline and cheeks, viewed in this set of photographs, meets the general look. She may just have a square jaw. I woke up ready to believe the worst of everyone today.

  11. Adrien says:

    More like Jewel than Julia.

  12. Charlotte says:

    I mentioned on the Winona post that I read earlier a poster claimed her tattoo is a ‘Winona Forever’. If so, that would put her over 30, right?

    • Tamara Jagellovsk says:

      The tattoo on her shoulder reads:
      The horse jumped over the fucking….
      (fence). It is a sentence by the
      American novelist,essayist and freethinker Kurt Vonnegut.

      • Charlotte says:

        Ahh, I couldn’t get a clear shot at it. Well, Vonnegut could make her any age then. Especially if it was a recent tribute to his passing.

  13. Veronica says:

    I know the last season of Dexter wasn’t good but I really wish Michael would have won an emmy for Dexter at some point, he’s just such an amazing actor.

  14. ds says:

    I just see Portia DeRossi….not sure I spelled it right

  15. Sway says:

    Not cute.

  16. The Original Original says:

    I really hate her dress, its awful. And she does sort of have a flattened with a frying pan face like Styles does

  17. Christina says:

    She does look young, but plenty of people look younger than they are. She is definitely younger than him, but that just makes him like almost every other actor in Hollywood. I think she is pretty. I also think it kinda cool that he is dating a “regular” girl and not someone in the industry. I love Jennifer Carpenter but she seems at peace with the split, sometimes marriages just don’t work out. My only thought was, he should have taken her shopping and gotten her a better outfit! Other than that, they look pretty cute together. She is most likely an intelligent girl with a job title like that. I hope he is happy.

  18. grabbyhands says:

    If by “look like” you mean she also has blonde hair and is slender and white, then yes, I guess she does look like Julia Stiles.

  19. redd says:

    Nope, she does not look like Julia. ugh, she is just ugh. No comparison at all. He ought to be able to do better.

  20. Joy says:

    She looks more like Chloe Sevigny than Julia Stiles.

  21. Dolores says:

    …My eyes haven’t strayed from the balding douche with the smug look on his face. Also, he duck lips, but has no lips. And generic hollywood starlet #897368.H? Yawn.

  22. Lacie says:

    Nah, nobody looks like Julia Stiles. Nobody anywhere. Except maybe Benedict Cumberbatch.

    Anyway, she looks like a young Evan Rachel Wood meets a young Olson twin…that smiles.

  23. RobN says:

    I’m pretty sure an associate editor is the actual editor’s assistant. Probably spends a lot of time getting lattes and picking up dry cleaning. But it certainly sounds pretentious, which I guess was the point. Unless she was going for Zooey quirky, in which case she falls a little short of that standard.

    • Lizzie B says:

      If they are following publishing standard job titles, she’s a junior- level editor. You might be thinking of editorial assistant, which is basically the office buttmonkey until they get promoted.

    • Jule says:

      I work in publishing and no, and associate editor is a lower level editor. Not an assistant.

  24. MJ says:

    She has a rip off of Angelina Jolie’s family birth coordinates tattoo! And a Winona Forever tattoo. Does she just get copies of famous people’s work?

    Otherwise, she looks pretty.

  25. BangBang says:

    If she has a Winona Forever tattoo then she’s pretty awesome and I’d date her just for that reason alone.

  26. Jule says:

    No. She doesn’t.

  27. Annie says:

    Tattoos never look good when you’re wearing fancy clothes. That’s why I’ve never gotten one. I feel like if you wear an evening gown it looks stupid. Trashy.

    I love Michael C Hall and I do hope those rumors of him and Julia are false.

  28. mollination says:

    I’d be shocked if she was 25 – that’s awfully young to have done what she’s done. Secondly, no, not too young for Michael. Three, Julia stiles lookalike? really? That’s reaching for some scandal, at best.

    I really wish he and Carpenter had reconciled.

  29. Camille (TheOriginal) says:

    Something about him just screams ‘GIANT DOUCHE!’ to me.

  30. anon says:

    My take on this:
    No, she does not look like Julia Stiles, other than being blonde. Might as well say she looks like Jessica Simpson, or Gwyneth Paltrow, or Jennifer Aniston, if you’re going to draw such terrible comparisons. Or any over woman on the planet who has blonde hair, natural or not.
    Her age… is she over 20? He’s not over 50? Ok, then I don’t care.

  31. Vesper says:

    If I didn’t know her employment history I would have placed her between 18-22. She looks really young.
