English actor and filmmaker Max Minghella and Maleficent actress Elle Fanning have been privately dating since 2018, keeping details under wraps yet making public appearances in red carpet events. 

Here's all that we know!

They Worked Together in 'Teen Spirit'

Minghella and Fanning met in 2018 at the set of Teen Spirit, a movie that Minghella wrote and directed, and Fanning starred in. 

The pair quickly hit it off after working together. But the news of their relationship made headlines only in July 2018 when they visited Florence, Italy.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A month later, they were spotted strolling through the London streets, holding hands. And both of them praised one another during an interview with ET in April 2019.

Fanning shared that going to places with Minghella was very special. She also maintained her professionalism and stated he was "a good friend," all while giving insights into Minghella's favorite music.   

For his part, Minghella praised Fanning as a triple threat, calling her the only actress who could have carried the movie so well. 

Though they unhesitantly praised one another and confessed it was great working together, neither of them affirmed their relationship in the interview. Nevertheless, the lovebirds made their red carpet debut as a couple at the Met Gala in May 2019. 

As public figures, both of them have kept their relationship under wraps, posting nothing on their social media. Having said that, they picked up their pooch together from a dog training facility in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles, in April 2020.

His Dating History

The Columbia graduate was in a relationship with the House of Cards actress Kate Mara.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The pair hit it off in 2010 and stayed in an on-and-off relationship for four years. In 2014, an insider told US magazine that the relationship ran its course. 

Max and Kate have broken up and gotten back together a few times over the course of their relationship, but this one looks like it's sticking. 

Three years after the split, Mara married Minghella's best friend, Jamie Bell. The Spiral actor shared with Glamour in 2018 that he had no problem with his ex-girlfriend being his best friend's wife. He said he met them every morning and considered their son as his godson. 

It’s a beautiful part of my life. I see them every single morning, and Jamie’s son is my godson. I can understand why the optics might be very confusing, but it’s not a complicated thing for us

Before Mara, Minghella was dating a model and DJ Leigh Lezark. He was also romantically linked with singer Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson, in 2015. 

Minghella on Growing up with Gay Men

While talking to a magazine named Newnownext, Minghella shared he would love to represent the LGBTQ community in his works.

He said he was very comfortable with gay people, for he grew up surrounded by people with special orientations.

The Hampstead native was raised by his gay godparents Jonathan Lunn and Amir Hosseinpou, the choreographers of Teen Spirit. He explained they were like co-parents. 

His father's best friend Duncan Kenworthy is also a part of the LGBT, with whom Minghella went on every Christmas vacation.
