An insider told New Idea magazine about their chemistry at the Oscars after-party: "She was continually touching his sleeve, giggling and sitting in awe of his every word, and he was lapping up every moment. It was electric watching them flirt, it was the buzz of the ball."

He recently tweeted they'd been working out together. He wrote: "Work out with @samanthaBarks 4km walk, 30 mins elliptical, 4 min prone hold, shoulder routine, leta,bench,turkish stand."

Samantha said of spending time together when they can: "We've done a few gigs in New York so far but whenever we're all free, we all just love to have a little jam... it's wicked."

The pair can be seen on set of Les Mis in a photo Samantha posted to her Instagram account. She captioned it: "This is one of my favourite on set pictures! Having boxing lessons with Russell in-between scenes!

"We had the best time hanging out. It was awesome."

Crowe wrote about the actress ahead of the Oscars. He said: "Last tech rehearsals for the Big O done...next up...showtime..@SamanthaBarks will be looking amazing tonight, worth tuning in just for that."

Russell and his wife of nine years Danielle Spencer split up in October last year. He was recently linked to Natalie Imbruglia, but was angered by rumours and called them 'bulls**t'.
