I love B.J Novak. Boston guy, Harvard guy, Office guy. He’s absolutely hilarious. Looks like he’s got a new chick in his life, too. A 21-year-old Instagram model who quit her full time job to be hot. It’s the American dream.
B.J. Novak — the former star of “The Office” and “The Newsroom” who dated comic Mindy Kaling — is in a brand-new relationship with a 21-year-old model, we’re told, and it’s raising some eyebrows.
Showbiz insiders say that the 37-year-old actor, producer and author has been dating model and Instagram star Ceilidh Garten (otherwise known as @lilmixedhunny to her 72,500 followers) — causing much chatter among his usual crew of 40-something pals. Said one, “She looks like she’s about 12.”
A source tells us that the pair met online after Novak — who follows many an “Internet famous” beauty online — reached out to her on the social network.
Insiders say that New York-based Garten — who was a paralegal, reportedly with a “genius-level IQ,” before she quit college to take selfies full time — has been out in LA visiting Novak.
So, the TL/DR: Ryan Howard just found some young Instagram model, slid into her DMs, and now they’re dating. (Hey, Chad Kelly, pay attention. Though, to be fair, Novak is a writer so he’s probably way, WAY better at that than you are.)
I guess we know who was on the other end of the line when Ryan “wanted to be with his phone.”
