Last month, Tommy Dorfman and Lucas Hedges were seen in New York City holding hands on the street. Soon after Dorfman came out as trans in a Time Magazine interview, saying "I view today as a reintroduction to me as a woman, having made a transition medically," she told Time. "Coming out is always viewed as this grand reveal, but I was never not out. Today is about clarity: I am a trans woman. My pronouns are she/her. My name is Tommy."

Last Thursday Dorfman and Hedges cuddled at a Hollywood screening of 2001's "Josie And The Pussycats," writes the Daily Mail. (Click to see the photo.)

"And she was dressed for the occasion, sporting a perfectly 2000s twinset with shiny leather pants and a sparkling silver bag for what appeared to be date night."

It is unclear, though, if Hedges, the 24-year-old star of such films as "Manchester By The Sea," and Dorfman are involved. But, the Daily Mail adds, "they definitely seemed closer than just friends."

Last week, Dorfman revealed that her relationship with husband Peter Zurkuhlen has evolved into a friendship since she began embracing her gender.

"I was in a 9-year relationship in which I was thought of as a more male-bodied person, with a gay man," she explained in the Time piece.

"I love him so much, but we've been learning that as a trans woman, what I'm interested in is not necessarily reflected in a gay man. So we've had incredible conversations to redefine our relationship as friends."

For his part, Zurkuhlen took to Instagram Stories last Thursday to show his support for Dorfman, reposting Tommy's gorgeous portrait from Time Magazine, and he added a sweet message of his own.

"So much love. You are gorgeous, and you are fully you. Proud of you, T," he wrote, along with a purple heart emoji.
