Kate Hudson and Nick Jonas are sure to reignite romance rumors after being spotted on an intimate, candlelit dinner date.
ET has obtained exclusive pics of the 36-year-old actress and 23-year-old singer outside the quaint Italian eatery, Pace, in Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday night. According to an ET eyewitness, the two were seated at a corner table on the outdoor patio for four hours and were among the last patrons to leave the restaurant just after midnight. Hudson and Jonas were then seen leaving together in a limo SUV.
The outing comes after the rumored couple was spotted cozying up to one another at the DirecTV Super Saturday Night party in San Francisco, a day prior to Super Bowl 50. "They were flirting and pretty close all night," a source told ET, adding that the two left together through a side door. "They definitely looked like more than just friends."
Hudson and Jonas have played coy as to the nature of their relationship, but the "Jealous" singer recently admitted to Complex that he has a strong vibe with the "Almost Famous" star. "We had an unbelievable connection as two humans who just admire things about each other, and see something in each other that's beautiful," Jonas told the magazine. "Out of my best effort to respect her and her privacy, I'm not going to say if we had sex or not. But we did have a beautiful connection."
"Even now I have so much admiration and respect," he added. "She's amazing."
However, Jonas insists that he's still single. "My current situation is that I'm very much single, but I'm trying to be as open to people who can inspire me in some way," he said.
Back in January, ET's Nancy O'Dell chatted with Hudson at the Golden Globes, and she dodged questions about her alleged romance with Jonas. "You gotta ask that on this carpet?" Hudson joked. "He's great. There's nothing to talk about."
"Just friends?" O'Dell followed up.
Smiling and taking a sip of her champagne, Hudson responded coyly, "There's really nothing to talk about."
ET also caught up with Hudson amid the Super Bowl festivities last weekend, and, like Jonas, she wasn't too keen on the dating scene. "I think dating is weird, so I'm not a big dater," the mother-of-two admitted. "But, then again... dating might be kinda fun. I don't know, I usually -- you just connect, right? And see what happens."
