Ellen Barkin is dating someone 31 years younger than she is. Oddly enough, he the son of the Barry Levinson, who directed Barkin in her first film, Diner. Ahhh, amore.
Barkin isn’t ashamed of dating 26-year-old writer Sam Levinson. “They go out, they’re photographed together, they don’t keep it secret,” a source told Popeater about the couple. Indeed, many call it New York’s “worst-kept secret.” According to Page Six, Barkin doesn’t plan on splitting with the young whippersnapper. She was overheard telling someone that they’ll part ways when “they roll me out in a wheelchair.” The two met a few years ago when Levinson sent Barkin his script for Another Happy Day.
Barkin stopped by Live! With Regis and Kelly to promote her Broadway play, The Normal Heart for which she earned a Tony nomination.
