Pete Davidson and Margaret Qualley are taking Venice by storm!
As we reported, the Saturday Night Live star is said to have been low-key dating the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actress for some time now, months after his reported split from Kate Beckinsale.
Neither have addressed their relationship publicly just yet, but it appears they’re letting the cameras do the talking for them!
In new photos obtained by E! News, the pair were spotted holding hands as they explored the Italian metropolis ahead of this year’s Venice Film Festival. As we know, a picture’s worth a thousand words — and hand-holding pictures are worth about twice as much. So, there’s a lot to unpack here…
Let us first dissect the couple’s choice of wardrobe. The pics show the comedian keeping it casual with a white graphic T-shirt, blue shorts, and Adidas sneakers, while his rumored leading lady opted for a summer dress. Clearly, they’re in the comfy clothes stage of their relationship.
Something else to note: the 24-year-old actress was seen carrying a camera to take touristy shots of their trip — NOT her phone, but a digital camera straight outta 2007. How quirky!
Overall, it sounds like the lovers are going strong. An eyewitness told the outlet Marg and Pete “never stopped holding hands” during their Venetian excursion, adding:
“They looked comfortable together and walked close. They went into a few little stores. They checked out little tourist stands and were chatting the entire time. They walked down narrow alleyways and let their shoulders bump.”
Bumping shoulders!? Slow down, you two!
The couple was said to have walked through St. Mark’s Square, where they admired the architecture of the beautiful buildings before returning to their hotels. The pair were later spotted in more formal wear as they left a restaurant.
It was definitely a special trip for Qualley — who btw is Andie MacDowell’s daughter — as she celebrated the premiere of her new film Seberg during the festival, right on the heels of her high profile role in Quentin Tarantino‘s blockbuster.
Although she hit the red carpet solo, photogs snapped pics of her funny flame sitting right behind the actress following the screening of the indie drama.
The duo reportedly arrived in Venice together on Thursday at Marco Polo Airport. An eyewitness told E! Pete and Marg were seen laughing and chatting together before heading off in the same car, but pointed out they didn’t show any “excessive PDA.”

Hopefully, Pete will open up about his new romance when the new season of Saturday Night Live kicks off on September 28. That’s usually where he addresses his love life after all.
