It's unclear when or how the two stars met.

"Garrett and Emma have been friends, but this is new, casual, and just a couple of weeks old," a source told the publication.

A source told E! News that Roberts and her "AHS" costar ended their relationship not long after Valentine's Day.

E! News also said that at the time, Roberts and the "Triple Frontier" star had "gone on a few casual dates and are exploring a relationship, but it is definitely not anything serious yet."

Hedlund previously dated "On the Road" costar Kirsten Dunst from 2011 to 2016.

March 31, 2019: Roberts and Hedlund were photographed showing affection while out and about.

"I never want to talk about relationships I'm in or that are ending or have ended," she said in response to the interviewer asking about her split with Peters.

"It's hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience. Growing up is hard. Sometimes it makes me sad that I can't have a private moment," Roberts said.

She added: "Because of Twitter and Instagram, there's a whole other element where everybody can comment on what you're doing and no one knows the real story. That's hard."

September 25, 2019: Months later, Roberts shared a similar comment about dating in an interview with Los Angeles magazine.

"Relationships are hard enough between two people, let alone two people and the entire internet," she said.

Roberts continued: "People say, 'Why's it so hard for celebrities to have relationships?' My answer? 'Do people photoshop their face over yours with your boyfriend?' It's just a weird thing. Hey, I get it: When I was growing up, I was obsessed with celebrity couples. It's just not as fun when it's you."

January 2020: A source told Us Weekly that the actors were "having fun and enjoying each other" and not discussing getting engaged or married.

"They like hanging out and going out together, and their relationship is more fun than serious," the source said.

At the start of 2020, Roberts and Hedlund were also seen hugging and kissing in Beverly Hills, California.
