Paul Giamatti is head over heels for his “beautiful girlfriend,” Clara Wong — and the pair have been professionally linked for years.

Giamatti confirmed his romance with Wong during his acceptance speech at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards in January, where he took home the prize for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy Film for his role in The Holdovers.

“I want to say, I love my beautiful girlfriend, Clara Wong. Why you bother with me, I don’t know why,” he said on stage shortly after the pair walked the red carpet together.

Prior to his relationship with Wong, Giamatti was married to producer Elizabeth Cohen from 1997 to 2000. The former spouses share one adult son, Samuel.
