Elle Fanning is nominated for the Golden Globes on Sunday for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series, Musical, or Comedy. And if she spends the night with anyone, it will probably be her boyfriend of almost three years, Max Minghella.
Us Weekly says that the two have been dating since July 2018, when they were seen holding hands in Florence, Italy. They were seen on a date in London in August of that year.
A person who saw them in London told Us at the time, “They seemed so calm and happy.” “They were very low-key and friendly with each other. When they were together looking at things, they watched out for each other and talked quietly to each other.”
In May 2019, at the Met Gala, was the first time they walked the red carpet as a couple.
When they both worked on the 2018 movie Teen Spirit, in which Fanning played the lead role and Minghella wrote and directed, they started dating.
When asked about her love life in 2019, Fanning told Entertainment Tonight, “I mean, we just really love working together.” “Wow, that was really cool, and he’s such a good friend.”
Minghella, who is 35, also kept the interview professional, but he did talk a lot about his girlfriend, who is 22. He called her “the only actress who could have carried” the movie. “It’s an amazing list of things to do. You have to be able to sing, dance, speak Polish convincingly, do a British accent, play different ages, and carry the movie with a very nuanced performance “he said. “It’s a lot for one person to handle, but she did it all with such discipline and professionalism, and she never complained.”
The relationship between Fanning and Minghella is both professional and romantic. Who is Minghella, though? Here are some facts about Fanning’s boyfriend.
Max Minghella Biography
Minghella was born in the London neighborhood of Hampstead to an Italian father and a Hong Kong mother. Minghella said that his mother, Carolyn Chao, was a big part of what he did creatively. Chao is known for her work on The English Patient (1996), Madama Butterfly (2020), and other projects as a crew member. IMDB says that she was in a few movies and TV shows in the 1980s and 1990s.
In 2019, he told Esquire Singapore, “My mother is a fascinating, very smart, and—I don’t know how to say this—very Chinese person.” “She comes from a different background and really shows that. So movies are the one thing we both love and have in common… She put me in touch with all of the important filmmakers.”
Max Minghella Career
Minghella told that Kenneth Lonergan‘s play about rich teens in 1980s New York City starring Jake Gyllenhaal made him want to be an actor. In 2002, when he was still in high school, he went to see the play.
“I wasn’t at all interested in becoming an actor. That play changed my life in so, so many ways,” he said. “That was the only thing that caught my attention.” He told Esquire that he was “already a pretty douchey kid in school” and that “getting acting jobs on top of that was too much.” He also said that his best friend Josh brought him back to reality while they were in the car.
“I was on the phone the whole time, taking calls back and forth, and I never spoke to him or thanked him for picking me up. When we got out of the car, he just lost it on me,” Minghella said. “I was 17 at the time, and that really woke me up.” He also said, “Being an actor is the best way to break people’s egos.”
