Not much can get between Rita Ora and Tessa Thompson – except Taika Waititi, apparently.
A photographer spotted the “How We Do (Party)” crooner and the “Westworld” actress sandwiching the Oscar-winning writer-director during a drinking session on a balcony in Sydney Sunday morning.
The Daily Mail reported that the snaps were taken following an all-night party at Waititi’s home.
In some of the images, Ora plants a series of kisses on boyfriend Waititi. In another pic, she sits nose-to-nose with Thompson while the “Creed” star rests her legs on Ora’s lap. In yet another photo, Waititi leans back and wraps an arm around Thompson’s leg while the actress holds his arm and Ora (perhaps conveniently) looks the other way.
Thompson is in Australia to film the Waititi-directed “Thor: Love and Thunder” in which she reprises her role as Valkyrie from 2017’s “Thor: Ragnarok”. The actress disclosed in 2018 that she is attracted to men and women alike, though she declined to label herself bisexual.
Ora and Waititi went public as a couple in late April when they showed up to the premiere of “RuPaul’s Drag Race Down Under” at the Sydney Opera House. He has two daughters with fellow director and fellow New Zealander Chelsea Winstanley, while she has previously dated Calvin Harris and singer-songwriter Andrew Watt.
“Thor: Love and Thunder” is just the second film Waititi has attached himself to since 2019’s “Jojo Rabbit,” which won him an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. He’s since completed the feature “Next Goal Wins,” an adaptation of a 2014 documentary about the American Samoa national soccer team. However, Searchlight Pictures has yet to announce a release date due in part to the scandal surrounding Armie Hammer, who starred alongside Elisabeth Moss and Michael Fassbender.
