Chiwetel Ejiofor split from his longtime girlfriend, Sari Mercer, just a few weeks ago, but is wasting no time getting back in the game. The actor was spotted at the premiere of his new film, The Martian, with a beautiful mystery lady. The pair weren't trying to hide their affection, either: they were holding hands and coupled up in a way that can only be interpreted as "new relationship."
According to the UK’s Mirror, Ejiofor and Mercer split in September. A source said, "It’s sad but the relationship came to a natural end. Sari was always such a big part of his life so it was definitely a big surprise to hear they had separated."
We're dying to know who this unidentified bombshell is! In the meantime, lets revisit Chewy talking about his breakthrough role in 12 Years a Slave:
