Ashley Greene is dating Liam Hemsworth's best friend.

The 26-year-old actress has started casually seeing Australian TV personality Paul Khoury but they are taking things slowly.

A source told Us Weekly: ''They are dating but it isn't that serious yet.''

Ashley - who has dated Joe Jonas and Chace Crawford - previously admitted she struggles to find a boyfriend because of the nature of the industry, and sometimes thinks moving back to Florida would be her best option.

She said: ''Dating is a hard, hard thing when you have this job.

''Sometimes I wish I could just go back to Florida and, like, date my home-town boyfriend.

''Listen, when I'm dating a guy and he says, 'I don't like press,' and then says, 'Let's go to Katana for dinner,' I'm like, 'Really? You don't want to just walk down the road to some dive? You don't want to get photographed, but you want to go to a place where you know there's paparazzi?' ''

She also finds the attention on her love life difficult to deal with.

She added: ''It's really frustrating whenever I can't go and do something because I know it's going to be in the internet.''
