Nothing says "we're an item" quite like a photo op. On Tuesday, Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden confirmed recent romance rumors when they were snapped hand-in-hand after a caffeine stop in New York (see the photos here).
"The relationship sort of hit Cameron out of nowhere," a Diaz confidant explains to People. "She's always been open-minded when it comes to men. She just wants to have something in common with them and find a personality that loves life and loves as hard as she does."
Another source echoes that sentiment to Us Weekly, saying, "She's happy to have someone to do boyfriend/girlfriend stuff with now. They're both diving straight in."
Most importantly, the actress, 41, is delighted to be dating the tatted-up musician, 35, even if she apparently wants to go slow.
"She's at a point in her life where she would love to settle down, but for now with Benji it's about being happy and taking things as they come," says the People spy. "She's happy … really happy."
The Us insider concurs that Diaz and Madden, who were reportedly introduced by his sister-in-law, Nicole Richie, are "totally coupled up and happy."
They further cemented their lovey-dovey status during a brunch date with pals on Sunday at ABC Kitchen, where they were photographed kissing and enjoying PDA aplenty.
"Throughout the entire meal, Cameron and Benji couldn't keep their hands off each other," an eyewitness tells Star. "They were whispering to each other and laughing, just having the best time together. … They were totally consumed with each other. Benji kept his arm around her, and she'd just rest her head on his shoulder and stare at him, grinning. It was obvious that she's crazy about him."
