Actress Laura Dern and former NBA player Baron Davis were spotted kissing last week in Beverly Hills and seem to be involved in a relationship.
The social media responses were a mashup of film Twitter, Star Wars Twitter and NBA Twitter.
She appeared in a number of high profile projects, including HBO’s Big Little Lies, Showtime’s Twin Peaks, Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, the movie Downsizing and, of course, the blockbuster film Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
She recently described, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, how important it felt to appear in a Star Wars film that was full of female heroes.
Davis played in the NBA from 1999 through 2012 and attempted a comeback last year with the Philadelphia 76ers G-League affiliate The Delaware 87ers.
Davis, who was always a fun player to watch, told the New York Times in 2016 that he hoped to make it back to the NBA after an untimely injury halted his career in 2012.
