Al Pacino is rumoured to be dating former 'Cheers' star Kirstie Alley. The Hollywood heartthrob, 65, has been spotted dining out in Hollywood with the curvaceous actress - and according to onlookers the pair were undeniably romantically entwined.

The news comes just weeks after Alley, 54, announced she had lost 50 pounds and was ready to start dating again. She has been single since splitting from James Wilder five years ago. A source told Star magazine: "They were huddled for the whole evening at the Chateau Marmont, and, at one point, Kirstie was stroking his thigh as she talked to him.

"It was bizarre. They totally looked as if they were on a date." Representatives for the screen stars have yet to comment. Last month, Kirstie - star of TV comedy 'Fat Actress' - told People magazine: "When I got fat, I was being stupid. It was a little bit like when I used to do drugs. "Before I stopped doing drugs, I had to spiritually get a grip and go, 'What do you want your life to be like?'"
