Rumours first surfaced in June the 55-year-old Academy Award-winning Milk actor split from the 40-year-old Mad Max: Fury Road actress, who is also an Oscar-winner.

And Sean’s 24-year-old daughter Dylan claims he isn’t overcome by heartbreak over the end of his love affair with Charlize.

“He’s great,” she told People magazine. “I saw him last night.”

Dylan linked up with her father Sean earlier this week to watch a screening of his forthcoming directorial effort The Last Face, a political drama which sees Charlize play the lead opposite Javier Bardem.

The Last Face centres on the life-altering events that unfurl when Charlize’s character, an international aid director, links up with Javier’s persona, a doctor, during a dangerous political uprising.

The picture is certainly a family affair, as Dylan’s younger sibling Hopper Jack is also part of the cast.

“It's beautiful, my brother [Hopper] is in it," she gushed of the film. "It's his on-screen debut, he's amazing, and the movie is beautiful. It's my dad's masterpiece. It was great to share that with him and some friends."

Dylan went on to reveal her father is “over” acting as he “likes being in control” behind the camera.

She also noted in terms of romance Charlize was the only woman who could keep dad Sean in check “besides my mum”, who is actress Robin Wright. Robin and her ex-husband Sean share Dylan and Hopper together, their only children.

Rumours have been circulating recently suggesting Dylan is still in touch with Charlize, but the young woman says this talk is “not true”.

"I guess there was a comment and I was like, 'She's the best,' and that meant we are still talking," Dylan said. "I don't know."
