Slidin’ into the DMs! BJ Novak is in a relationship with a 21-year-old Instagram model he met online, and, according to Page Six, it’s a bit of an odd pairing.
The Office alum BJ Novak, 37, has a new girlfriend named Ceilidh Garten, 21, an Instagram model he met on the photo-sharing app. According to a report from Page Six, BJ, who apparently follows “many ‘Internet famous'” online beauty influencers, messaged Ceilidh and she has since gone out to LA to visit him.
Known to her 72,500 followers as @lilmixedhunny, Ceilidh is New York-based model who has appeared in clips for The Weeknd’s “In The Night,” a Milk Studios campaign and posed for brands like Opening Ceremony. According to an interview with Oyster Magazine, the former paralegal broke out on the social network Tumblr years ago. “Because I was home schooled, I spent lots of time on the computer doing homework, and on the web,” she said in the interview.
BJ’s new girl is actually a certified genius, but dropped out of school to pursue her modeling career. Reports claim that BJ’s crew of middle-aged men aren’t too impressed with his choice. “She looks like she’s about 12,” one of his pals reportedly said.
BJ is known for his work on The Office, The Mindy Project and The Newsroom. He dated co-star Mindy Kaling off and on for a number of years and worked as a producer on her show The Mindy Project. While they are no longer romantically involved, the two remain friends and are currently in the process of writing a book together… interesting.
Well, we definitely wish the best for this new couple! HollywoodLifers, what do you think of BJ Novak’s new girlfriend? Do you think she’s too young for him? Let us know!
