The two were smiling and looked happy together as they stepped out in Los Angeles and enjoyed a few laughs.
Jackson, 40, and Turner-Smith, 32, both looked casual with The Last Ship star in a yellow Champion sweatshirt, ripped jeans, leopard print flats and tiny, white sunglasses.
Late on Sunday night, Turner-Smith seemed to tweet about her new man. Sharing a heart face emoji, she wrote: ‘when he leaves and you are free to rub gobs of aloe on your face, because self-care is important and so is space and time alone.’
Along with her new boyfriend, Turner-Smith has plenty on her plate career-wise to keep her busy.
She was just cast as the star of the upcoming Universal picture Queen & Slim alongside Oscar-nominee Daniel Kaluuya.
The film follows a couple who are stopped by the police, and looks at how the experience affects their lives, according to Variety.
Josh and Jodie were first spotted together in August, just months after news broke that his ex-girlfriend Diane Kruger was pregnant.
