“I have saved so many hate comments from all over the world. I love that a 16-year-old kid from Yugoslavia is sitting behind his computer being so hateful because of something I did,” he told The Guardian in September 2010.

The actor even shared why big-name singers seek to work with him.

“They call me because they want – I don’t want to say the word because I don’t like it – but they want something ‘edgy’. In the end, they’re too scared [to go through with his ideas],” he continued. “I am only able to do it with friends. They’re totally cool with no trailers, guerrilla-style.”

Who Is Romain Gavras’ Family?

Romain may have made a name for himself, but he was born into the entertainment industry. He was born on July 4, 1981, and is the child of journalist and producer Michèle Ray-Gavras and Oscar-winning film director Costa-Gavras.

The Athena director was raised in a household centered around “politics and cinema,” which shaped the way he parents his teenage daughter.

“All the narratives are like that. A girl has something special inside her. Same thing with superheroes. They don’t work hard to have their superpowers. They get bitten by a spider and all of a sudden they’re magical. What does that teach: that one day you’re going to win the lottery? That’s why the only good superhero is Batman, because he doesn’t have superpowers, he’s just a rich vigilante,” he told The Guardian in September 2022. “Don’t tell kids they’re special. I have a 13-year-old daughter and I’m always telling her: ‘This stuff doesn’t exist. Life is work. Don’t expect a superpower.’”

Romain and Dua’s Cannes appearance occurred three months after they first sparked romance rumors. The duo left a party together in February 2023, per Entertainment Tonight, before they were photographed leaving a Saint Laurent Paris Fashion Week show hand-in-hand.

This is Romain’s first public relationship after his 2021 split from ex Rita Ora.
