The stunning Underworld star is dating LA-based comedian and actor Matt Rife, who has been featured on MTV's Wild'n Out and is 21 years old.

They later were spotted at Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel, where an onlooker says Simpson showed off some sexy moves for Ross to Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The next day Simpson and Ross showed up for lunch together at West Hollywood’s Cafe Med.
