OK! (USA) - - Couples News -

Elle Fan­ning and Max Minghella first sparked ro­mance ru­mors on New Year’s Eve, af­ter Max, 33, di­rected the then 19-year-old in the drama Teen Spirit. Though they’ve been go­ing strong ever since, a source tells OK! that their age gap has the ac­tress’ loved ones con­cerned. “Ev­ery­one thinks it’s a wildly in­ap­pro­pri­ate re­la­tion­ship,” ex­plains an in­sider. “She ab­so­lutely started out as his em­ployee, be­came his muse, and wound up as his girl­friend.” Though Elle’s fam­ily thinks the two are at dif­fer­ent stages in their lives, Max is de­ter­mined to prove he’s wor­thy. “Peo­ple just don’t want to see Elle get­ting in too deep, too quickly with any­body,” says the in­sider, “but Max is to­tally ob­sessed with mak­ing this re­la­tion­ship work. He’s smit­ten.”

“Love is over­whelm­ing — in a good way,” Elle has said. “But it can over­power ev­ery­thing.”
