Oscar Isaac, magnificent creature that he is, has a girlfriend. Of course he does. The two shared a sweet kiss at Sunday’s Golden Globes, which you may remember as the last thing that happened before you blacked out in a fit of rage. Elvira Lind is her name, and their kiss was el-viral. But honestly, we should all breathe a sigh of relief that they are together. Imagine the thirst-induced chaos that would take hold if Oscar were single: riots in the streets, Poe Dameron action figures replacing the dollar as currency. Society would resemble that movie The Purge.

Once you begin to see Isaac’s relationship status as a good thing, as perhaps the only safety valve on our increasingly unmoored civilization, you’ll also want to take a moment to admire his choice in partners. Isaac has been private about his dating life, getting squeamish over the term girlfriend with GQ, and was previously engaged to another woman, Maria Miranda, whom we know very little about apart from her hair color (also blonde). 

Lind is a 34-year-old documentary filmmaker and photographer, so full credit goes to Isaac for dating someone with an interesting career that isn’t underwear modeling, and who is age-appropriate to boot. According to her website, Lind is originally from Copenhagen and went to film school in South Africa. (Isaac himself is 36 and was born in Guatemala and raised in Miami before attending Juilliard. Yep.) The two have even worked together. With her blond wispy bangs, European origins, cool name—Elvira!—and ability to attract quality men, it is unknown but to be assumed that Lind is some sort of witch or fairy-pixie hybrid. A bit of online sleuthing reveals Lind’s modest—18 tweets, 233 followers—Twitter account, where she once posted evidence of having eaten “an entire raw onion,” which is proof that our hero doesn’t care if his woman has onion breath. Swoon! Another thing he doesn’t care about: looking shorter than his lady, as he did on the red carpet Sunday. Now that spells real man.

We already knew that Oscar Isaac was good at acting, but now we know that he is also good at picking girlfriends. And even though he once wore an Ayn Rand T-shirt, we forgive him, because above all he is good at being handsome. So handsome that if he were ever single, the apocalypse would probably be close at hand.
