Actress Rosario Dawson has opened up about her split from director Danny Boyle, insisting she is still friends with the director.

The stars, who worked together on new movie Trance, sparked rumours of a romance last summer (12) when they were photographed kissing in the seaside town of Brighton, England, but reports this month (Mar13) suggested the relationship had ended.

Dawson has now confirmed the split to editors at Britain's Daily Telegraph.

When asked if she is still friends with the Slumdog Millionaire filmmaker, she replied, "Definitely we are", and added she thinks it is "important" to remain on good terms with former lovers.

The Sin City beauty hinted the split was amicable when she hit the red carpet for the London premiere of Trance last week (ends24Mar13) by cuddling up to Boyle and posing for pictures with him.
