In recent weeks, the actor and singer were spotted together at the Serpentine Gallery’s annual summer party, then a fundraising event for London’s National Gallery.


The two were also spotted together at Silverstone ahead of an F1 Grand Prix race. It marked the third time that Lewis and Mosshart have been seen publicly at an event.

They have yet to officially confirm any romantic relationship. However, Lewis fans will remember that after McCrory’s passing, the Homeland star revealed to The Sunday Times that the esteemed actress had given him permission to date other women after her death.

“She said to us from her bed, ‘I want daddy to have girlfriends, lots of them, you must all love again, love isn’t possessive,’” Lewis shared.

She is best known for fronting two rock bands

Mosshart made waves in the rock scene in the early 2000s. She formed the band The Kills with guitarist Jamie Hince – perhaps most famous for being Kate Moss’s ex-husband. The Kills debuted their first album in 2003, entitled “Keep on Your Mean Side”. The band still actively performs, most recently at The Mayan in downtown L.A.

In 2009, the songwriter also joined alternative rock supergroup The Dead Weather, where she was lead vocalist and played the rhythm guitar. The Dead Weather’s latest album was released in September 2015 entitled “Dodge and Burn”.

She paints abstract art

Mosshart’s Instagram page offers up a clue about her other big passion in life – painting. The rock singer is clearly a prolific and talented artist, and mostly paints abstract faces in acrylic on canvas.


Her works are also for sale, though so far her website is simply a holding page, and she instead invites people to inquire about her works via the listed email address.

In a 2010 Vogue UK article, British model and fashion designer Alexa Chung cited the I Feel Love singer as her style idol.


A year later, Mosshart also contributed to Vogue UK’s “Today I’m Wearing” series, in which she showcased what she wore every day for a month. She showed off a wide array of accessories and clothing, ranging from a pair of Linda Farrow sunglasses to a Pam Hogg fur coat.
