Jai Courtney devoted to his girlfriend despite stardom

Spartacus star Jai Courtney will be playing Bruce Willis’ son in the latest Die Hard installment, A Good Day to Die Hard that will be out on Valentine’s Day 2013. Courtney beat out Breaking Bad’s Aaron Paul and the Hunger Game’s Liam Hemsworth for the role that will launch him in up a few notches in Hollywood. The Australian native was last seen along side Tom Cruise in Jack Reacher.

But all the ladies who are no doubt Googling pictures of him should be aware of his girlfriend of over 7 years, Jade Mitchell who he met in 2005 at an audition in Sydney. Courtney is devoted to Mitchell and even has a tattoo on the inside of his right arm which is three Scrabble tiles which spell out his nickname for her, “Xum”. In Australia the couple is hounded by the paparazzi but not because of the Courtney’s fame from Spartacus, but from his girlfriend who made a name for herself on a popular Australian soap opera.

Courtney made an impact on Spartacus as the character Varro but was killed off despite the fans outcry that still bugs fans of the show. But now he’s in the bigtime Courtney will be seen alongside Tom Cruise and Bruce Willis. Willis built the Die Hard franchise but there are rumors that he will be phased out and his onscreen son, played by Courtney will take over in future movies. It’s feasible that we will see Jai as the star of Die Hard 6 should the film do well and his character connects with audiences.

With his 6′ frame and chisled out of stone physique it’s a sure bet Courtney is on the verge of a breakout year. And unless things change ladies, he will have his girlfriend by his side.
