A source tells Us that the couple met through mutual friends. "They get along really well, they respect each other’s work," the insider says. "She's been too busy to date for awhile, they've been texting often and they've been spending some time together in L.A. and New York."
Indeed, earlier this week the twosome caught a New York Rangers game at Madison Square Garden. "#RangerDanger," the Bridesmaids star captioned a sweet black-and-white Instagram photo on Saturday, May 16. "Let's go NY!"

The Australian actress and her beau coordinated in Rangers outfits for the big match, and were spotted holding hands before heading back to their hotel. The insider adds to Us that Gooch Jr. also supported Wilson at her Pitch Perfect 2 L.A. premiere on Friday, May 8.
Just this month, Wilson blamed her busy schedule for not being able to main a stable love life. "You have to sacrifice relationships because you work, and now I travel all around the world," she told Australia's Elle magazine. "I'm constantly moving and constantly travelling and so it's really hard to maintain a relationship in that kind of environment."
She added: "I keep that [part of my life] quiet. You have to have some private stuff, and so I've never flaunted anything or talked about anybody."
