London: Just two months after splitting from David Thewlis, Hollywood actress Anna Friel has confirmed that she is dating her co-star Rhys Ifans.

Friel, 34, and Ifans sparked romance rumours earlier this month after he was snapped wearing a bathrobe outside her home, a website reported.

They became close on the sets of `Neverland` last year and have now gone public with their romance.

Recently, the couple were spotted getting cosy outside hotel Chateau Marmont.

"I`m with Rhys and I`m very happy about it," the `Pushing Daisies` star gushed about her new beau.

Friel parted from `Harry Potter` star Thewlis in 2010 after spending nine years together.
