Michelle Williams was on vacation with boyfriend Andrew Youmans before salary drama

Michelle Williams and boyfriend Andrew Youmans are apparently heating up! Shortly after news of the pair’s coupling made headlines, photos surfaced of the pair spending New Year’s Eve together in the Bahamas.

Prior to Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, Williams, 37, was on vacation with Youmans and her 12-year-old daughter, Matilda Ledger. Matilda is the All the Money in the World star’s only child with the late actor, Heath Ledger.

The four-time Oscar nominated actress looked happy and relaxed, lounging on the beach with her beau in a red one-piece swimsuit, white sunglasses, and floppy hat. So, who is the actress’s new flame?

Youmans is an entrepreneur, investor, and financial consultant in New York. According to his profile for the Handel Group, he graduated Dartmouth College and received his MBA from Harvard.

Williams and Youmans were first spotted together on the streets of Rome in July 2017 as the actress filmed All the Money in the World. That film is now at the forefront of Hollywood’s gender pay gap debate as outrage mounts regarding the actress’s salary.

While it was first reported in November that Williams was receiving a fraction of Mark Wahlberg’s payday for reshoots to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, outrage erupted online on Tuesday when the exact numbers were reported.

Per USA Today, Wahlberg received $1.5 million for around 10 days of work while Michelle Williams was paid an $80 per diem totaling less than $1,000.  At the time, director Ridley Scott said he, Williams, and the other actors were essentially doing the work for free. The outlet alleges that Williams wasn’t told of Wahlberg’s hefty fee. Both stars are represented by WME.

Williams’s BFF, Busy Philipps, was one of the many actors to tweet their disgust after learning the news.

The actress has yet to comment on the report, but at least she got a relaxing vacation ahead of the drama.

    'Headless Chicken Monster' Spotted in Southern Ocean For the First Time

    A deep-sea swimming cucumber, also known as a “headless chicken monster,” has been captured on camera for the first time in the Southern Ocean off east Antarctica. The Enypniastes eximia, which had previously only been filmed in the Gulf of Mexico, can be seen in footage released on October 21. The video was taken by an underwater camera system developed by the Australian Antarctic Division for commercial long-line fishing. “Some of the footage we are getting back from the cameras is breathtaking, including species we have never seen in this part of the world. Most importantly, the cameras are providing important information about areas of sea floor that can withstand this type of fishing, and sensitive areas that should be avoided," Australian Antarctic Division Program Leader Dr Dirk Welsford said.

    EU cannot accept temporary measure on Irish border -French minister

    The European Union will not accept a temporary measure to solve the issue of the Irish border in Brexit negotiations, France's Europe minister Nathalie Loiseau said on Sunday. Britain has said it could accept a longer post-Brexit transition period if the EU drops its proposals for the Irish backstop - an insurance policy to ensure there will be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland. Britain has said any such extension must be time-limited.

    EU's Barnier plays down 'backstop' checks on Northern Irish trade

    The EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier stood firm on the need for checks on goods shipped from mainland Britain to Northern Ireland after Brexit, while insisting this would not amount to a new border, in an interview published on Sunday. Negotiations on Britain's departure from the European Union are stalled on several issues, but primarily an Irish 'backstop' both sides agree is needed to avoid a hard border between the UK province of Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, an EU state.

    UK firms near point of no return for Brexit contingency plans, CBI warns

    Most British companies will implement their plans for coping with a disruptive Brexit by December if there is no clarity by then on how Britain will leave the European Union, a survey by a major employers group showed. The Confederation of British Industry said its findings showed how the lack of a breakthrough in negotiations between London and Brussels was endangering British jobs, investment and economic growth. "Businesses have displayed remarkable resilience since the referendum, but patience is now threadbare," CBI Director General Carolyn Fairbairn said.

    North Korea's box of bones: A mythical king and the dream of Korean unification

    On a divided Korean peninsula, tales of King Dangun - the mythical founder of the first Korean kingdom more than 4,350 years ago - play a quiet but persistent role in keeping the dream of reunification alive. This mythology made an appearance in September when North Korean leader Kim Jong Un took South Korean President Moon Jae-in to the top of Mount Paektu, the supposed birthplace of Dangun. Moon also invoked the legend in an unprecedented speech in Pyongyang, calling for Korea to be reunited.
