Jessica Chastain's Boyfriend, Gian Luca Passi De Preposulo, Makes Her 'Very Happy' (VIDEO)

Jessica Chastain may not have won the Oscar for Best Actress, but she's happier than ever.

The "Zero Dark Thirty" star, 35, gushed about her boyfriend, Italian fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, on the red carpet, telling Extra's Mario Lopez she feels really lucky.

“Yes," a beaming Chastain said when asked about her beau, continuing, "I am very, very happy. It’s a wonderful thing when a career does so well and your personal life goes so well.”

Chastain was spotted with Passi for the first time in public over the weekend as the pair attended the annual Women In Film pre-Academy Awards celebration in Los Angeles, held at eatery Fig & Olive.

"They've been dating seriously for awhile now and Gian really likes her," a source tells Us Weekly, adding that the couple has made a pact to keep their relationship out of the spotlight.

"He is a classy guy and completely agrees about respecting their relationship and not flaunting it," the insider adds.

We're so happy for Jessica!
