Malin Akerman, who recently separated from her husband, is reportedly dating Colin Egglesfield, although she thinks he may be out of her league.

She may be beautiful enough to be a trophy girlfriend, but Malin Akerman thinks her alleged new boyfriend is even better-looking than she is, Us Weekly reported. Sources claim that the pair is taking it slow for now, while a friend of Akerman added that "she thinks he's almost too hot for her!"

First spotted together having dinner at Sugarfish Sushi on April 1, Akerman and Egglesfield continued to meet for more dates. The couple attended the 2014 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach where the Trophy Wife star rallied for her new man during his race attempt.

Akerman famously split form her husband Roberto Zincone after the drummer filed for legal separation from the actress last November. The duo was married for six years and have an 1-year-old son together.

The breakup was amicable, however, and both Akerman and the her rocker ex just want "what's best for their son," a source told Us.

"No one has plans to file yet," the source said at the time. "Honestly, Malin is not even ready to discuss it. It's a very sad time for her."

But, it was just two days later that Zincone filed his divorce papers at a Los Angeles court. The pair remained tight-lipped about what happened between them, but the breakup came and went quite quickly.

Akerman seems to have rebounded nicely, though, even after she initially seemed to be taking her divorce very hard. She's going slow with her new boyfriend, but seems to be in a good place and apparently ready for a new relationship.
