The actress, 47, has been dating Foster, who is 14 years her junior, since early last year and they made their public debut as a couple at the Lucille Lortel Awards in New York over the weekend.

However, it appears the stars were not comfortable putting their relationship on full display for press photographers.

A source tells the New York Post's Page Six column, "They actually ran off the carpet because all the camera flashes overwhelmed them."

Wright's divorce from Penn was finalized in 2010 after 14 years of marriage.
