Victoria Justice has a new movie...and a new man!
The 22-year-old beauty stopped by the E! News studio on Thursday (be sure to tune in at 7:00 and 11:00 p.m. tonight!) to chat about her forthcoming film Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List, which will be released next Friday.
But of course, we also had to get the scoop on her super-hot co-star Pierson Fodé, who also happens to be her real-life boyfriend!
"I met him at the audition and it was cool, we became friends and he's a great guy," she gushed, not wanting to reveal too much about her beau. "He's really sweet. And just a great really tall person."

In the coming-of-age romantic comedy, Justice plays Naomi, a college freshman who is in love with her gay best friend Ely (Fodé). The two have a "no kiss list" so that no man will come between their friendship, but things take a complicated turn when Ely falls in love with Naomi's current boyfriend.
Asked if the former Nickelodeon star, who has grown up in the spotlight, relates to her character, she replied, "I can definitely relate to my character Naomi in a lot of ways. She's a very flawed character. She's really vulnerable in a lot of ways, she's a freshman at college starting at NYU," the Eye Candy star shared. "I'm at a point in my life where I'm going through a lot of changes, and I can definitely relate to that—kind of step into your own independence and take charge of your life."
While Justice is accustomed to living life in the public eye, the brunette stunner rarely discusses her relationships, but promoting a movie with her boyfriend has made her policy a bit more difficult.
"To be honest with you I get kind of uncomfortable talking about it because I've always been a really private person and it's always been about focusing on the work for me and I don't really talk about my personal life," she admitted. "But it's like in this situation I can't really avoid it..It's different. He's great, and I'm glad we get to share this together."
Victoria and Pierson's real-life romance blossomed on set and the two began dating in December 2013, just a short while after Justice split from Ryan Rottman—but the adorable couple is just one of the many reasons to see the movie.
"If you pre-order the movie before Sept. 18, 10 percent of the proceeds are going to the Trevor Project, which is the largest organization for suicide prevention and intervention for LGBTQ youth," Justice shared. "They're doing amazing things and it's so important for that youth to have a place where they feel safe and accepted, so it's a great cause and I'm so happy we're able to get back."
Naomi and Ely's No Kiss List will be released on Sept. 18 and available on iTunes.
