Justin Long and Kate Bosworth put their chemistry on display for all to see while lending their support to The Michael J. Fox Foundation on Saturday night.
The celebrity couple — who only just tied-the-knot this past May — were among the stars to attend the organization’s annual gala A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Cure Parkinson’s at Cipriani South Street in New York City.
Stepping out for a night together, Long, 45, was absolutely beaming with joy beside his wife dressed in a black suit and a white dress shirt.
The pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other while working the cameras on the red carpet.
Equally glowing, Bosworth, 40, showed off her fab figure in a sleeveless black dress with silver trim and a matching floral decal along the bust.

The Blue Crush actress matched the striking number perfectly by wearing black and silver, open-toes heels, and carrying a small clutch purse that sparkled under the glare of the harsh camera lights.
While Long had his dark brown hair styled short, over his ears with a part on the left, his new bride had her long blonde locks pulled back into a tight bun with a center part.
At one point the hot and heavy duo were joined on the red carpet by the event’s namesake, Michael J. Fox, 62, who still looks youthful dressed in a plaid blazer with black pants and sneakers.
His wife Tracy Pollan, 63, would also join in on the fun and snuggle up to her husband of 35 years, looking cool and stylish in a black sequin blazer with a white shirt and black slacks.
The romantic sparks between Long and Bosworth reportedly began while they shot an unidentified project together in 2021, but the relationship rumors didn’t start to go public until March 2022 when they were spotted together in Los Angeles, according to People.
Eventually, the couple got married at The Rockaway Hotel in the New York borough of Queens this past May, in what was described as ‘impromptu and casual.’
Marketed as ‘an evening of comedy and music to benefit The Michael J. Fox Foundation For Parkinson’s Research’, Saturday’s event was hosted by Denis Leary and also featured the comedy of Ronny Chieng, Dulce Sloan and George Wallace.
The music included the talents of Bob Weir, best known as a founding member of the Grateful Dead, Jason Isbell and Steve Jordan’s Super Soul Banned.

Established in 2000, the foundation is is not only dedicated to finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease, it also concentrates on funding research and ensuring the development of improved therapies for people with Parkinson’s.
Since its start 23 years ago, MJFF has funded an astounding $1.5 billion in high-impact research programs, while the gala has helped raise more than $112 million of that sum, with $4 million of that total coming from 2022 alone, the organization proudly boasts.
‘We operate with focus and determination in everything we do. We won’t stop until a cure is found,’ it reads on the MJFF website.
Fox went public with his Parkinson’s disease diagnosis in 1991, when he was just 29-years-old, but continued to act until he finally retired in 2020 due to his symptoms, which have included tremors, impaired movement, coordination and muscle stiffness.
