Eddie Redmayne goes public with new girlfriend at Wimbledon

British actor Eddie Redmayne showed off his new romance on Monday (25Jun12) as the world famous Wimbledon tennis tournament kicked off in London.

The My Week with Marilyn star stepped out with public relations worker Hannah Bagshawe, and the pair indulged in traditional English afternoon tea at the All England Tennis Club.

A source tells Britain's Daily Mail, "They're terribly sweet together and Eddie is awfully protective. They held hands all day and while everyone else was outside drinking on the terrace Eddie took her inside and they shared afternoon tea from one plate. He even buttered her scones for her."

Last year (11), Redmayne was linked to fellow Brit Carey Mulligan, who went on to marry folk rocker Marcus Mumford in April (12).
