Actors Lucas Hedges and Tommy Dorfman were spotted strolling through New York City Sunday while holding hands, sparking a stir on social media.

The "Let Them All Talk" star was seen wearing a black bucket hat, sunglasses, a brown tank top, knee-high boots, and short shorts. Meanwhile, the "13 Reasons Why" star was wearing a breezy orange dress and sunglasses.

Hedges, 24, attended Dorfman's birthday celebration back in May, which implied the two are likely just pals. (For the record, Dorfman married Peter Zurkuhlen in 2016.)

Lucas starred in the 2018 drama "Boy Erased," a film about young men who get sent to conversion therapy camp. He opened up about his sexuality at the time, stating he's "not totally straight but also not gay and not necessarily bisexual."

"I felt ashamed that I wasn't 100 percent because it was clear that one side of sexuality presents issues, and the other doesn't as much," Hedges told New York Magazine.

"People expect you as an actor to have a voice that's set in some way, and that's really not what I am," Hedges added. "I'm very much within the conflict and confusion of my own life, still, and I definitely feel a pressure to step up in a way. I prefer to step up in my art, and I don't entirely know how to in my life."

This isn't the first time Dorfman has gotten cozy with their friends. Last year, "Euphoria" star Jacob Elordi made a surprise appearance on Dorfman's Instagram as the pair were seen embracing each other and even shared a kiss.

Twitter was quick to react to Hedges and Dorfman hanging out. Check out some of the responses below, and click here to see the pics.
