Andrew Garfield split with Rita Ora (lol) and now he’s with Aisling Bea

The 64th Evening Standard Theatre Awards - Arrivals

Just after Thanksgiving last year, we heard a completely random rumor that Andrew Garfield was hooking up with Rita Ora. I thought the report (which originated at The Sun) was likely a hallucination by some British editor, but almost a month later, the Daily Mail published some exclusive photos of Rita and Ora walking down the street in London. They didn’t look particularly loved up, but they didn’t look like “just friends” either. It was a confirmation that the rumors weren’t some Garfield stan’s delusion – Rita and Andrew really were happening at some level. After those photos though, there was a whole lotta nothing. No other sightings, no updates on Ora-Garfield babies, nothing. Most of us just thought they quietly ended whatever hookup situation they had. But I guess this is a bigger story, because not only was there a confirmation this week that Rita and Andrew broke up, but he’s already in the arms of another woman!

Andrew Garfield appears to be romancing Irish actress Aisling Bea. The 35-year-old actor was seen laughing with Bea, 34, in the West London audience of Hamilton, in a Twitter photo taken by a fanthis link opens in a new tab and shared by multiple outlets.

Bea has appeared onscreen in the TV show Hard Sun as well as Bullet to the Heart, The Fall and L.O.L. She’s also an award-winning standup comedian. Rumors of a relationship come after Garfield’s split from singer Rita Ora, according to multiple reports.The pop star, 28, and the Oscar-nominated actor were first linked in November, British tabloids reported at the time.

Neither Ora nor Garfield ever confirmed the romance; however, they were photographed out and about together several times — including when they walked arm-in-arm last Christmas Eve in London’s Primrose Hill district.

[From People]

I watch a lot of random British chat shows and random British comedy shows, so I was familiar with Aisling Bea before now, and she’s seriously funny and very pretty/cute. Also: I friggin’ love the name Aisling. Irish names are amazing. Aisling and Andrew make more sense than Andrew and Rita, just from a general vibe level. Rita is a famewhore who goes to the opening of an envelope and gets paid to parade around in dumb outfits. Andrew is a morose borderline depressive who used to wax poetic about capitalism being the root of all evil. The more I think about it, I actually can’t believe that Garfield pulls these kinds of women, from Emma Stone to Rita to Aisling. He must be a lot different one-on-one.

    This makes SO MUCH more sense than Rita Ora!!

    Aisling is an absolute treasure. She’s the highlight of every quiz show she’s on, especially Taskmaster. I hope this means we get to see more of her!!

    • Kitten says:

      LOL I know.

      I’ve never heard of Bea before but she’s beautiful. She definitely makes more sense than Rita but honestly? I agree with Kaiser that it’s shocking that he’s able to consistently bat above his average. And I’m talking strictly about looks, obviously. Maybe he’s a funny, charming guy. Maybe it’s BDE…who knows.

      • C-Shell says:

        While he may have a BD, “Andrew is morose borderline depressive who used to wax poetic about capitalism being the root of all evil” is pretty much the antithesis of BDE. Sorry, I’m in the midst of editing a book and can’t help being that nerd who is living breathing word definitions and pop culture references. Apologies.

        My friend met him several times at an exercise class they both go to in London. Apparently he is down to earth, polite and nice. Not sure why people are so hard on him on this site since there’s a general lovefest for any random British guy. Sure he can come across as maybe a bit pretentious at times but I think that’s just typical British luvie and tbh he comes across as no more pretentious than Hiddleston or Cumberbatch but arguably more woke.
        I am not commenting on his looks as I don’t see why that matters. You don’t pick partners solely on looks IRL.

        @ Lola-That’s good to know and I’m sure some women find him attractive.
        I, however, do not. And while looks certainly aren’t everything, men like Andrew are lucky because rarely do looks NOT matter when you’re a woman– especially in Hollywood. It’s good to be a famous, rich white guy isn’t it?

    • Scal says:

      Yay! I love her! She’s funny and I could see why he likes her.

    • Kathy says:

      My husband had seen Aisling on a bunch of panel shows before, but once he saw her on Taskmaster she became his celebrity freebie. She really is next-level hilarious on that.

  2. Ifeoma says:

    Wow, she’s gorgeous. I think I read somewhere that she recently dated Micheal Sheen?

  3. OriginalRose says:

    “…but almost a month later, the Daily Mail published some exclusive photos of Rita and Ora walking down the street .. ” is my fave type o ever please leave it in. We just know Rita would totally date herself given the chance

  4. Lucy says:

    Aisling Bea is amazing! (I love her writing and her commitment to ethical fashion!) they seem like a cute couple.

  5. Case says:

    I have a friend who loooooved Andrew Garfield for a while. She made me watch a few interviews with him and I remember thinking he seemed nerdy and chatty but not entirely…pleasant? He seems moody or something, I don’t know. He didn’t charm me. I had no idea he was dating Rita Ora, but that’s hilarious.

    • Kitten says:

      Yeah he always comes across as a grump to me, too. Maybe he just hates doing interviews. *shrugs*

  6. Polly says:

    Aisling Bea is lovely and deserves the whole world.

  7. Lola says:

    Pretty sure he was spotted with a woman on the beach in LA after or during the whole Rita rumor. It seems like he was/ is dating around. But Aisling seems a better fit than the other women hes been seen with.
    Also I don’t think that rumor was the wet dream of Garfield stans as Rita isn’t exactly the dream partner for fans of Oscar nominated and Tony & Olivier winning actors. More likely Ritas team who have form for doing this kind of thing, tipped of British media.

    • CARROT says:

      He was papped making out with the actress susie abromeit in early September. The rita rumours didn’t come out till end of November.

  8. Hnmmom says:

    Speaking of Irish actresses, have you watched Derry Girls on Netflix? It’s fantastic.

    • ATLMathMom says:

      My daughter just recently recommended Derry Girls to me! It look a couple of episodes for me to get into it, but I ended up enjoying it. And at 6 episodes, it wasn’t too much of a time commitment, lol.

  9. FC says:

    My daughters’ names are Ainslie and Bea, so her name is speaking to me!

  10. AG-UK says:

    Didn’t get Rita Ora.. but he seems lovely and he’s cute. Saw him while waiting for the bus a couple of weekends ago with a couple and their baby. Him walking/talking to the baby. He tried to be incognito but eagle eye me spotted him in baseball cap and all.

  11. CARROT says:

    You really need to go and watch some more
    Andrew interviews cause he’s actually very sweet and funny and yes he can be serious but if he’s promoting a serious project (like Angels in America) then of course he’s going to be serious. He signed for everyone every night for angels in America and was always nice and sweet. I think your opinon of him is very harsh. And since he got a haircut he’s been looking a lot better these days. Angels really took it out off him and sometimes he looked ill. I guess that’s what doing a 7 hour two part play in London for 8 months then
    Another 7 months. And trust no andrew stans wanted him with rita. She’s the antithesis of Emma Stone. Aisling Bea is a much better fit. She was dating Michael Sheen who is also very lucky with ladies. Michael doesn’t want any more
    Kids so maybe a factor in their break up?

  12. Maddie says:

    I love Aisling Bea.

  13. Bella Bella says:

    Depressives can be very funny!

  14. Anna says:

    I’m so confused. What is the big deal with Andrew Garfield? He’s just…so…strange to me… Almost like a more grown up Pete Davidson…?

  15. Parigo says:

    Ok so her ex is Michael Sheen. Now how does THAT guy pull the women he does?

  16. Haniver says:

    He’s ugly and he worked with Mel Gibson. She’s too good for him. Next!

    Ainsly is an annoying anti-asian racist tryhard
