Michelle Williams and new boyfriend Jason Segel stepped out in public for the first time Wednesday at the premiere of his new film,  "The Five-Year Engagement."

In line with reports from mid-March that had the actors dating for months already, they braved the eyes of peers and press at an after-party at New York's Museum of Modern Art. 

Hand-in-hand, Segel and Williams chatted up the likes Elizabeth Banks and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Vanity Fair said, as well Robert De Niro, whose Tribeca Film Festival hosted the premiere screening.

Additional PDA included kisses on the cheek and rubs on the back, according to People -- something that tells the Ministry these two are solid enough to brave a summer full of tablod covers and media analysis.

Regarding his single life, "I hit my 30s and enough became enough," Segel told People at the premiere. "I put the puppets into a closet. I'm getting nice furniture." 

Though his puppets are locked away, "The Five-Year Engagement" reunites Segel with director Nicholas Stoller, a past partner in puppetry -- the men famously staged a Dracula puppet musical in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

Costarring Emily Blunt, "Engagement" follows a couple who have promised to marry each other but can't seem to get to the altar.

The party was, in fact, styled after a wedding reception. But making inferences from such a theme when it comes to Segel and Williams is premature -- even for us.
