She is one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood, while he has yet to make a name for himself – but his father’s will turn back the clock for film fans.
Overnight sensation Rooney Mara – just cast as Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – is dating fledgling director Charles McDowell, the son of A Clockwork Orange star Malcolm McDowell.
These exclusive photographs show the couple, who have been dating since the start of the year, in Los Angeles shortly before Mara, 25, flew to Sweden to begin filming her role opposite Daniel Craig.
McDowell, 27, is certainly well-connected – his mother is actress Mary Steenburgen.
She divorced Malcolm McDowell when Charles was seven and she later married former Cheers star Ted Danson.
