Veteran actress Ellen Barkin is dating the 26-year-old son of famed moviemaker Barry Levinson, the director who launched her film career.
The 57 year old, who found fame in Levinson's 1980s film Diner, is romantically involved with the moviemaker's writer/director son Sam and they have reportedly been living together in New York for the last two years.
They are said to have met while Sam was writing Barkin's 2010 film Operation: Endgame and the Ocean's Thirteen star leads the cast of Sam's latest movie, Another Happy Day. They were pictured hugging and kissing when the film was premiered at this year's (11) Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
A source tells New York Post gossip column Page Six, "They go out, they're photographed together, they don't keep it secret."
Barkin is mother to two children from her first marriage to actor Gabriel Byrne. After their split, she wed businessman Ronald Perelman, but that union also ended in divorce in 2006.
