cozied up to boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy
as the New York Knicks took on the Dallas Mavericks at Madison Square Garden on Friday in New York.
Age difference aside – Olsen is 26 and Sarkozy is 43 – the duo appeared relaxed and enamored with each other as they engaged in some light PDA.
Of her relationship with an older man, Olsen recently told the Wall Street Journal
: "Everyone has an opinion. I find it's better to focus on what's in front of you and to keep putting one foot in front of the other."
Olsen and Sarkozy – who is the managing director of global asset management firm the Carlyle Group and is half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy – have been previously spotted strolling with his daughter
in the West Village over the summer and, earlier last year, enjoying another Knicks game
Most recently, Olsen was honored
for her contributions to the fashion industry.
