Actress Ellen Barkin is said to be dating a man 31 years her junior. But that’s not the only unusual thing about their relationship.

Barkin, 57, who’s starred in Ocean’s Thirteen, got her start in Barry Levinson’s 1982 film, Diner – and now, she’s reportedly dating his son.

Writer-director Sam Levinson, 26, has been living with Barkin for two years, according to a Page Six report, a May-December romance that insiders called the “worst-kept secret in New York.”

“They go out, they’re photographed together, they don’t keep it a secret,” says a source of Barkin and Levinson (who is five years older than Barkin’s son, Jack). “It works, but it’s weird,” added another.

The actress, who is nominated for a Tony award for her role in The Normal Heart, is divorced from cosmetics billionaire Ronald Perelman.

A rep for Barkin had no comment about her relationship.
