She carried the majority of her belongings in a backpack, while keeping her cellphone and a pack of cigarettes in hand.

After dining, Tessa was seen smoking a cigarette as she crossed a busy street with a slew of fellow New Yorkers.

Thompson’s lunch date comes just a little over a week after pictures obtained by MailOnline showed her cozying up to Rita Ora and Taika Waititi following an all-night party at Taika’s home in Sydney.

It was a busy day for the actress as on the same day, she was also spotted locking lips with model Zac Stenmark, reports Page Six.

The duo were seen passionately kissing and laughing as they enjoyed a stroll together in Sydney, with Zac even spotted lifting Tessa’ sunglasses so that he could gaze into her eyes.

After the photos of Rita, Tessa, and Taika were published, it was reported that Waititi received a dressing down by Marvel bosses. 

According to the Daily Telegraph, Marvel executives were left vastly unimpressed after seeing images of the Thor director, 45, cuddling up with the two women.

Both Rita and Tessa were in Sydney filming scenes for the Kiwi filmmaker’s upcoming Thor sequel Love and Thunder.

The publication claimed that Taika’s display also ruffled feathers among the bosses at Marvel’s parent company Disney. 

‘Not exactly the image they’re looking to project in relation to one of their biggest franchises,’ a Thor: Love and Thunder production insider told the publication. 

The insider claimed that, while Taika is known for being a ‘party animal’, the photos ‘crossed a line’ for company bosses.
