Emma Stone and Justin Theroux have sparked dating rumors yet again as the couple was spotted leaving Met Gala together. Even though the two came to the red carpet solo, people could not take their eyes off the pair once they were seen leaving the event for the after party. 

Emma looked flawless as she wore a navy dress with gold embellishments for the event, while Justin chose to keep his look a bit casual as he opted for an all-black ensemble. The pair has been good friends ever since they worked together for Netflix's show 'Maniac'.

Emma and Justin were later spotted driving off in the car. However, the two were not alone. Actress Shailene Woodley had also been present in the car and while it may look like her presence was enough to shut down the dating rumors, people could not help but recall that this comes after the two were spotted grabbing dinner together in NYC. 

The pair was all smiles as they were photographed heading into Blue Ribbon Sushi in Soho for a night out. At the same time, nearly a month after Justin announced his split from Jennifer Aniston, he made his first public appearance at the Louis Vuitton fashion show during Paris Fashion Week on March 6. The actor was seen sitting next to Michelle Williams and Emma.

following month, Justin shared some pictures on his Instagram where it was seen that the actor was hanging out with the Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness and Emma. Knowing how one photo is enough to raise speculation, Justin was careful of the words he used and made sure that he made their relationship status clear in the caption. 

"Save lives! Save lives! Saving lives! Doing the most! Bffffffs. And yes. JUST bfffffs," he wrote. Even though the two insists that they are just friends, fans are pretty confused about what is going on seeing how the two have been spending a lot of time together. 

"It seems like Emma Stone and Justin Theroux can't get enough of each other these days! The co-stars were even photographed leaving a Met Gala after-party together. Sooooo..what's going on?" one fan wrote on Twitter. On the other hand, there are some who are hoping that the two never start dating as the comment read, "Emma Stone & Justin Theroux?! I hope not!!"

The news comes after Justin and Jennifer announced their split on February 15. The couple, who had been married for two years and were dating for seven years announced their split on Twitter in a joint statement. The statement, which was released by Jennifer's publicist Stephen Huvane, stated that the couple had decided to separate on mutual terms but still continue to remain good friends.

"In an effort to reduce any further speculation, we have decided to announce our separation," read the statement. "This decision was mutual and lovingly made at the end of last year. We are two best friends who have decided to part ways as a couple but look forward to continuing our cherished friendship."
