You expect nothing but glitz and glamour at the Cannes Film Festival. There were a couple of loose cannons this year, though.
Rosario Dawson ‘very happy’ with new boyfriend Danny Boyle
Oscar-award winning Danny Boyle is pretty much the man of the moment thanks to his incredible work for the London 2012 Opening ceremony that kicked off the Olympics.
But we're not the only people who are chuffed with his work: his new girlfriend actress Rosario Dawson is also pleased with him, and has said she is 'very happy' to be dating the film director.
That's right. Danny Boyle is dating Rosario Dawson! The couple may have a 22-year age gap between them (he's 55; she's 33) but they've been keen on each other since meeting after he cast her to star in his next movie, entitled Trance.
Rosario is most famous for her roles in movies including Sin City, Men In Black 2 and Seven Pounds... and we all know what Danny is famous for - namely Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours and of course, the Isles of Wonder.
Speaking to Heatworld at a recent event, when asked about her relationship with the director, Rosario reportedly said she was "very happy" and that she thought the Opening ceremony was "breathtaking".
The pair's relationship only just came to light, after pictures of them together holding hands and kissing surfaced. The new couple were hanging around in Brighton a week after the Opening ceremony, of which she was a special guest.
On the night, she tweeted a picture of herself at the Olympic stadium, adding: "What an amazing honor to witness the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics!!"
The multi-award winning director is quite a change from Rosario's normal boyfriends: she has previously dated Sex And The City hunk Jason Lewis and French DJ Mathieu Schreyer.
Danny was previously in a 20-year relationship with Gail Stevens with whom he has three children, but they split in 2002.

They LOOK an odd couple but could be well matched. Who knows? Only they.
However, there is NO positive body language there. They look almost like two strangers passing. Wouldn't know they were together if we hadn't been told.
By the way, their children will be amazing!
