Anna Faris is traveling with her new rumored man.

The Mom actress, 40, and cinematographer Michael Barrett, 47, were spotted in Venice, Italy on Wednesday after flying out of Los Angeles’ LAX airport arm-in-arm over the weekend.

Faris and Barrett enjoyed a bundled-up ride on a water taxi as they took in the views of the romantic city. The cinematographer even sweetly wrapped his arm around the actress during the ride. The two have been spending time together since September after working on the new film Overboard. They were first spotted together early that month.

The cinematographer is the first man Faris has been publicly seen with since splitting from Chris Pratt in August after eight years of marriage. Faris and Barrett were seen on several dinner dates in October, stepping out twice in the span of two days at Modo Mio, an upscale Italian restaurant in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Pacific Palisades.

Faris opened up about her separation from Pratt to PEOPLE in October, saying, “We’ll always have each other and be incredible friends.”

“There is still so much laughter in our lives together, and he is so proud of me, still,” she added at the time. “We watched each other grow, and he still cracks me up all the time. And I think I crack him up — unless he’s a really good actor and great at faking laughter.”

The actress also opened up about the public reaction to their split, which lamented their breakup.

“It’s understandable that people seemed so invested in our happiness together,” Faris said. “All I can say about that is, it’s all true, that we truly adore each other, and we love each other, I think it still comes through.”
