Unlike many young Hollywood actresses, who flaunt their new relationships in public at any given opportunity, Eliza Dushku has managed to keep her love life private — even her relationship with former beau, baseball player Brad Penny, was something she rarely commented on.

Now OK! has learned that the 27-year-old beauty, most famous for her role as Faith on the hit TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, has recently started dating Seth MacFarlane, the oddball genius behind two animated Fox hits, Family Guy and American Dad.

"They met through mutual friends," a source close to the new couple tells OK!. "They’re enjoying each other’s company so far. He makes her laugh a lot and she really enjoys good laughs and good conversation."
