Daryl Hannah is rumored to be dating newly-single rocker Neil Young. Could there be any truth behind the rumor? The Daily Mail recently posted shots of the two dining in southern California. The actress was spotted kissing Young's cheek in one of the shots.

Us Weekly says the two are definitely an item. Daryl Hannah's admiration of Neil Young apparently began as a fan.

"She's a huge Neil fan," a source told them of the Kill Bill star. "They've known each other for years."

People reports that the two have been dating 'for months.'

"They've been dating for months," a source told them. "They've taken no effort to even hide it. He recorded a new album a few weeks ago, and she was on Skype the entire time, giving him feedback on every take. He even told people in the studio she was his 'girlfriend.' "

Neil Young just filed for divorce from his wife--Pegi Young--on July 29th. The two have been married for 36 years. Might his new relationship with Daryl Hannah have anything to do with the split? Pegi Young was said to be the inspiration behind several of Neil Young's hit songs, including "Such a Woman," "Once an Angel," and "Unknown Legend."

Daryl Hannah was once linked to the late John F. Kennedy, Jr., and is no novice when it comes to dating rock stars either. She was involved in a relationship with Jackson Browne from 1983 to 1992.

Neil Young founded the band Buffalo Springfield back in 1966, and in 1969 became known for his role in Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his music with Buffalo Springfield and as a solo artist as well.

In addition to Kill Bill, Daryl Hannah is known for roles in films like Splash, Wall Street, and Steel Magnolias.

So what's your take on the relationship between Daryl Hannah and Neil Young? Is it a rumor? Are the two simply involved in a purely platonic friendship? Or is this the beginning of a romance between a 1960s rocker and an actress with a most eclectic style?
