Amanda Seyfried is going Long.

After rumors first swirled that the "Lovelace" star was quietly seeing actor Justin Long (read about their flirty date night), the duo has been photographed together for the first time, and they seemed quite comfortable with each other.

Seyfried, 27, and the "Going the Distance" star, 35, enjoyed a cozy day together in Los Angeles on Thursday. They both kept it casual, especially the actress, who went makeup-free and tossed her hair into a casual ponytail. They picked up some drinks (iced coffee for her; a smoothie for him), then went to a park for a little picnic. They sat on the grass chatting, then were joined by one of Seyfried's girlfriends a little later.

Perhaps the most telling thing, however, was Long's interaction with Seyfried's dog, Finn. He was seen holding the leash of the Australian shepherd, whom she has referred to as her "best friend" and said, "I love him. I think of him and only him."

The new beau being trusted with her beloved dog?! Sounds serious.

But how serious remains to be seen as both Seyfried and Long have reputations for being serial daters. Her exes in recent years include Ryan Phillippe, Josh Hartnett, and "Dexter" star Desmond Harrington. She also recently told Elle she still loves her "Mamma Mia!" co-star and ex, Dominic Cooper.

As for Long, he's dated Drew Barrymore, Kirsten Dunst, and, most recently, Kate Mara.
