Jamie Bell is opening up about his notoriously private and very new marriage to actress Kate Mara.

On Friday night, the British actor and the American star, who were married in July after two years of dating, had a date night at the 2017 AMD British Academy Britannia Awards—but it wasn't the couple's average night of romance for the newlyweds.

At the event, which was held at The Beverly Hilton Hotel and hosted by English comedian Jack Whitehall, the Billy Elliot actor told E! News that his normal date night looks nothing like the star-studded event, "Netflix and chill is date night. Couch. Postmates. That's the date night. Our perfect date night is a movie and dinner."

So it appears as if there's no spiffy duds, step and repeats and hobnobbing with the Hollywood elite when the twosome can make time for each other.

When asked how being married to the House of Cards actress feels about being married to his lady love, Jamie, who has often been tight-lipped about the relationship, said, "It feels no different. It feels like been married for years. In the best way. We're having a great time."

The night's honorees included Aziz Ansari, Kenneth Branagh, Matt Damon, who could not be there due to a family emergency, Claire Foy and Dick Van Dyke.

As for the couple, E! News confirmed that the Hollywood stars tied the knot in Los Angeles in July after dating for over two years.

Kate took to Instagram to share a pic from the wedding, featuring her smooching on her man in the middle of blurry lights and smoke. She captioned the artistic photo, "Nuptials."

Jamie shared the same photo with the caption, "Mr. and Mrs. B."

The lovebirds met on the set of Fantastic Four in 2014. But they didn't fuel dating rumors until the Met Gala in May 2015 when they were spotted holding hands as they made their way into a private after-party. That September, they were photographed getting cozy on a beach in Malibu.

Though rumors circulated their engagement the year before, they didn't officially get engaged until January 2017, which Mara confirmed in a photo on Twitter.

Bell was previously married to Evan Rachel Wood for two years. They divorced in 2014, almost a year after welcoming their son.
