David Harbour & Lily Allen went to the SAGs together and he gushed over her

Sunday night, when I jumped on Twitter to get the pre-SAG feed (so basically, I was farming for CB and Kaiser’s comments on the red carpet), I saw a bunch of tweets about David Harbour and Lily Allen that were of the WTF? variety, with Twitterers asking how is it nobody told them David and Lily were dating. That’s what you get for not reading Celebitchy, folks! You are doomed to be surprised by stale news. The couple walked the SAG red carpet together, which was neither their first outing nor their first red carpet. David wore a traditional black tux and looked nice. Lily wore a dress from Azzi & Osta in the red/pink trend that’s so popular right now. It’s pretty, I like the dress a lot. I think I would have liked it even more if it had either been one color/two fabrics or one fabric/two colors, but Lily looks great, and apparently David agreed because he couldn’t stop raving about her on his Instagram stories.

David Harbour and Lily Allen are going strong!

The couple stepped out to attend the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday, where Harbour, 44, was nominated for outstanding performance by a male actor in a drama series for his role as Jim Hopper in Stranger Things. His fellow nominee Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones) took home the Actor.

Harbour and his costars in the hit Netflix series are also up for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series.

Harbour looked dashing in a classic black tux, and Allen, 34, stunned in a red and pink gown with a plunging neckline. Harbour teased the couple’s night out on his Instagram Story as they got ready together, captioning a photo of the English singer from behind as she got her glam done.

“Who is my mystery date getting hair and makeup done in this hotel room I’ve been living in too long that is full of ‘I don’t know what the hell anymore’ stuff?’” he wrote, joking.

Then he posted a photo of the two holding hands, with Allen’s back to the camera once again.

“Who’s the stunning one in red?”

“That’s right, it’s the brilliant, beautiful, brash, bold, brave and just f—ing hot @lilyallen,” he captioned the next slide, finally unveiling a photo of the two from the front.

It’s funny, I’m not a huge fan of demonstrative shows of physical affection, like their NY City tongue-swapping stroll, but I’m okay with it in verbal form. I think it’s nice that they are so excited for each other. They’ve only been dating a little over four months so this could still be the honeymoon phase or they could both be pawers, who knows? Either way, they seem harmless and happy so I’m still on board with this union (I’m sure they’ve been waiting for my endorsement).

But there’s also the story of What Could Have Been. Stranger Things was up against Game of Thrones at the SAGs for Best Ensemble in a Drama. The award went to The Crown but imagine if it had gone to Stranger Things? As David was accepting the award, Lily’s brother, Alfie Allen, could have jumped up from the GoT table, grabbed a bottle of Tattinger and taken the stage, vowing to avenge his sister. Then the rest of GoT would storm the stage and it’s a battle of dire wolves and demogorgons, with a Jonas Brother thrown in for fun.

    I really like them as a couple! Her first album was my summer 2007 jam, I still listen to it.

  2. AnnaKist says:

    Wow, she looks lovely in these photos. The last time I saw her (admittedly, quite some time ago), she looked a fright. And I’ll aiwats love that type of hair – the kind I always wanted but never could possibly hane.

  3. Nahema says:

    I love Lily Allen and it’s great to see her happy.

  4. smcollins says:

    Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look so glamorous. The dress is really beautiful and she looks really beautiful in it.

  5. Khy says:

    He looks 10 years younger without the beard.

  6. Normades says:

    Not a fan of the two tone, but the dress looks great on her, very flattering. Also nicely cut suit on David and glad he quit the man bun.

    They are quirky perfection. Between JP/Rooney, lulu wang/Barry Jenkins, Paul Dano/Zoe Kazan, Kumail/Emily V. Gordon, Keanu/Alexandra Grant….so many couples I’m stanning right now.

    Hollywood men can date ‘age appropriate’ women who are also their creative equals.

  7. Momof2rats says:

    I love her dress. I wish I had smaller breasts so I could wear something plunging like that without falling out. Love that smaller breasts are back in style!

  8. TIFFANY says:

    I really liked he and Alison together.

    I will say this for David, when he is with someone, he is all in. What you see is what you get and that is cool.

  9. TQB says:

    I knew David in college and, welp, he had some issues and was not the greatest person (although always the greatest talent, FWIW). Fame so often ruins people, but I have to say, finally getting the respect he deserves really suits him. He gave up drinking (hoo boy, he needed to do that), sought help for mental illness, and now he’s loved up with a spectacularly interesting (and also hot) woman.

    I was always secretly thinking he’d get together with Winona, which is sort of awesome/creepy because he definitely had a huge crush on her as a young person.

      @TQB Yeah…I am a longtime lurker on here…but as someone who has an IRL connection when I saw your comment, I couldn’t help but make my first comment. Great commenters here btw 👋 hi guys

      1) He definitely is still drinking, at least when here in nyc
      2) He definitely can get hm, intense, at times when he’s drunk (I’m guessing it was the same back then…now add fame/ego to the mix)
      3) He can be quite mean, verbally. When he’s drunk it’s at least straightforward meanness. When he’s sober, it becomes more subtle, like a cutting comment.
      4) her drunk, so far, is pretty nice & complimentary of randos (which always is a relief bc it’s not always the case when interacting w/inebriated celebrities & typically comes from a genuine place)

      Anyway I agree that fame can corrupt truly anybody – and when I say corrupt I more so mean fame/success/recognition often is the ‘perfect’ storm to alter somebody’s personality. There are several high profile examples out there, but the public would never know.

    Her dress is amazing. They are so cute and refreshing!

    I really like him as an actor. As a boyfriend….he seems like high maintenance. Does that make sense?
