Rosario Dawson's father was "concerned" when he found out about the actress' romance with Danny Boyle as the director is a year his senior.
Greg Dawson, 54, admits he was shocked to discover his 33-year-old daughter is dating 55-year-old Brit Boyle, who she met on the set of their new film Trance.
However, he insists the 22-year age difference shouldn't matter as long the director makes the Sin City beauty happy.
He tells British newspaper the Mail on Sunday, "I was a bit concerned about the age difference. Some of her other boyfriends have been older, but not by more than 20 years. All I care about is that Rosa has a smile on her face. As long as Danny treats her right I won't have a problem with him."
News of the couple's romance emerged earlier this month (Aug12) when the Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker, who served as creative director of the London 2012 Olympics opening ceremony, was photographed walking hand in hand with Dawson and kissing her during a visit to the seaside town of Brighton, England.
