Luke Evans is no longer Down Under, but is still at the beach with a hot companion. The 41-year old out superstar was spotted on a Miami beach with hunky male model Gustavo Naspolini, reports the Daily Mail.

And the recently single Evans got affectionate with Naspolini. "At one point Brazilian hunk Gustavo, 31, could be seen affectionately putting both his hands on Luke's shoulders as they enjoyed the water together."

The ripped Naspolini boasts an eye-popping 321k Instagram followers, which isn't surprising when looking at his posts.

And there's a question of the model who was seen with Evans in Australia while the actor was finishing up shooting "Nine Perfect Strangers." The actor went to Melbourne last July to make the Netflix film, and was quarantined in a hotel for two weeks beforehand. With a cast featuring Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy, and Manny Jacinto, the Hulu limited series is based on a novel by "Big Little Lies" author Liane Moriarty, and is adapted by David E. Kelley, who did a similar task on that previous HBO miniseries. Evans plays Lars, a gay high-powered divorce lawyer. He told ET that he took the role because "[he] is like nothing I have ever done before, which I think is a fun thing for an actor to find a role that does not feel or resonate with anything I have done in the last 15 years." The series finished shooting at the end of last year and is scheduled for broadcast in December.

Evans also expressed gratitude for the work in these difficult times. "I feel very lucky and very thankful for the work.... I do not take any job like that for granted. It's a real privilege to be working and to be working on such great projects."

In addition, he stars in the upcoming British true-crime three-parter "The Pembrokeshire Murders," being streamed on BritBox. "From the producers of 'Bodyguard,' this three-part series brings to life an extraordinary cold case of two 1980s unsolved double murders and the pursuit of Welsh serial killer and former game show contestant John Cooper," ET reports.

In the show, he plays Steve Wilkins, the police superintendent who broke the sensational and very dark case. Does Evans find it difficult to pull away from the material when not shooting? "I've never had a problem with switching it off. I've found that it's a technique that you have to learn, especially when you're dealing with subject matter as serious and as dark as this," he told Collider. "It's important to be able to switch off and to leave the story and the traumatic subject matter on the set. There have been a few characters that I've played where there have definitely been very painful days of emotional turmoil, and it's up to you to wash that away. Sometimes you just go home, have a glass of wine and go to bed, and you're ready for another day, the next day. That's just the life of an actor. Sometimes you have to dive into the deepest parts of the psychology of another human being and try to imagine the pain and the emotional levels of what they're going through. It's also very wise to be able to switch that off and to leave it there and not take it home with you."

Another high profile project Evans has joined is the Disney remake of "Pinocchio," to be directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Tom Hanks as Geppetto. "Well, I've always loved 'Pinocchio,' " he told Collider. "It's a timeless story. It's a very old fairy tale or fable, whatever you want to call it. It has very powerful messages woven into the storyline, many that I think relate to young kids and young people. I don't think it will be anything like any iteration of 'Pinocchio' that we've seen before. I'm truly excited to be a part of it. I'm very honored that Disney has chosen me to play another villain in the world of Disney. I'm surrounded by some very talented people, including Mr. Hanks. It's just a joy to think that I'm in the same film as that legend. I'm very excited about it. Very excited, indeed."
