Rachel Weisz and Kathryn Hahn at The Hollywood Reporter's actresses roundtable in March 2019.

A video of Kathryn Hahn gazing at fellow actress Rachel Weisz in an “absolutely smitten” way has gone viral.

The award-winning Transparent actress stares at Weisz throughout the video, which was edited together using clips from last month’s The Hollywood Reporter 2019 actresses roundtable.

Hahn also grips the back of Weisz’s chair as well as making both eye contact and physical contact with the star, who has had two queer roles over the past year, appearing in Disobedience and The Favourite.

Many tweeters were fully on board with the idea that Hahn was ‘gayzing’ at Weisz—a word coined online after Kristen Stewart looked adoringly at Cate Blanchett during the Cannes Film Festival last year.

One of these people wrote: “kathryn admiring her like an angel flung out of space dhskdjd.”

Another said: “I feel like I’m intruding on a first date. Just gonna finish my appetiser and pretend I have a headache.”

A different commenter tweeted: “this level of lust is reserved solely for lesbians,” while yet another person said: “KATHRYN YOU CAN’T OPENMOUTHED STARE AT PEOPLE’S LIPS LIKE THIS IN PUBLIC.”

Other people were taken aback by Hahn’s move to hold the back of Weisz’s chair, with one writing: “When she touches the chair, SENSUALITY.”

Another fan said: “nearly audibly gasped when she first put her hand on the Rachel’s chair.”

A different user commented: “Hahn is basically dying from her girl crush and finding reasons to grasp her chair like a bedpost. My gratitude for this cannot be measured.”
