Ravishing beauty Kate Bosworth, 29, of Superman Returns, Wonderland and Win a Date with Tad Hamilton! has carried on long-term relationships with such Hollywood hotties as Orlando Bloom and Alexander Skarsgard, but it's her boyfriend of just over a year, Michael Polish, 41, with whom Bosworth has finally decided to settle down.

In August, Bosworth and the physically affectionate Polish, who has been directing critically acclaimed independent films like Twin Falls Idaho and Northfork with his twin brother, Mark Polish, for over a decade, announced their engagement, and the two haven't been able to keep their hands off each other since.

Bosworth is now in New Orleans filming the thriller, Homefront, in which she plays the meth-addicted sister of drug lord James Franco, and Polish is right by her side. The two have been stepping out this week in their time off to check out the Big Easy, strolling along with their arms firmly fixed around each other and giant smiles plastered onto their faces. Occasionally they take a moment to stare into each other's eyes.

"He's a special one," Bosworth told the Sunday Times Style Magazine about Polish. "There's nobody in the world I admire or respect more. When I look at him, it's not a crazy infatuation, it's more like we are each other's life partners."

Polish and Bosworth met on the set of Big Sur, based on the Jack Kerouac book, directed by Polish and starring Bosworth, Henry Thomas, Anthony Edwards, Josh Lucas and Balthazar Getty.

Big Sur hits theaters later this year. Homefront, also starring Winona Ryder and Jason Statham, will be released in the summer of 2013.
