Rooney Mara rents home with Charles McDowell

Actress Rooney Mara's romance with budding director Charles Mcdowell is getting serious - the couple has moved in to a $2 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills.

The 26-year-old star of the highly-anticipated thriller The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo has been dating the filmmaker, the son of A Clockwork Orange veteran Malcolm McDowell, since early 2010 and they are now taking their relationship to the next level by renting out a luxury house in Los Feliz to set up home.

Charles McDowell, 28, is Malcolm's son with second wife Mary Steenburgen. The Oscar-winning actress is now married to Ted Danson.
