Christina Applegate may be in the middle of a divorce from actor Johnathan Schaech, but she seems to be learning that there are other fish in the sea.
Her latest catch is Alaskan fisherman and aspiring photographer Lee Grivas, whom she met in the fall through a dancer in her Broadway show Sweet Charity.
We’re very happy with each other,” Grivas, 24, tells PEOPLE in its upcoming issue. “I like making her smile and she likes making me smile. It’s really innocent and fun.”
Schaech, who filed divorce papers Dec. 5, seems to be moving on too: He was partying Dec. 17 at the Las Vegas club Seamless. The couple officially separated six months ago.
Applegate, 34, plans to head back to Los Angeles after Charity closes Dec. 31, and Grivas has a fishing boat to hop on in Alaska this month. But “we’re really good friends,” says Grivas, “so we’ll keep in touch.”
