PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

bobbycannavale620.jpgNot only is actor Bobby Cannavale currently sharing a Broadway stage with his idol Al Pacino in the revival of Glengarry Glen Ross, he's apparently sharing his time offstage with Bridesmaids' actress, Rose Byrne. We spotted them canoodling at the the premiere of the third season of Portlandia on Monday night, and couldn't help but think,  "Damn, he gets around with some of the coolest ladies in the biz." Not that the talented, totally hot Cannavale is a hard sell but, still, we're impressed. Here's a guide to a few other actresses that Cannavale has dated, and what they're up to now. (You can just send our award overnight express, Pulitzer committee. Thanks.)

Cannavale was married to Jenny Lumet, granddaughter of Lena Horne and daughter of Sidney Lumet from 1994-2003. They have a teenage son named Jake who starred alongside his dad in Nurse Jackie this year. Lumet went on to write Rachel Getting Married in 2008.

Bobby was 33 when he started dating actress Annabella Sciorra, who was 11 years his senior. He dumped her for his 22-year-old co-star Alison Pill in the Broadway play Mauritius (see below). Ironically he ended up starring alongside Sciorra his next time out on Broadway in The Motherfucker with the Hat, four years later. This Tuesday, Sciorra will star in the Rockaway benefit at the Cherry Lane Theater for Hurricane Sandy victims.

She's since been a regular presence on Broadway and currently stars in Aaron Sorkin's HBO hit, The Newsroom. And her love life doesn't seem so bad either. She recently tweeted a topless photo of herself to new boyfriend Jay Baruchel.

Continuing with the co-star theme, Cannavale also dated Broadway superstar Sutton Foster. The actors met doing the off-Broadway show, Trust. In 2011 they were both nominated for Tony Awards, Foster for Anything Goes and Cannavale for The Motherfucker with the Hat. (Foster won.) The two broke up in April of 2012, but she's now starring on the enjoyable ABC Family show Bunheads, about ballet dancers.

(That's Smash's Will Chase in the middle of the handsome pair.)

And finally... it looks like Rose Byrne will be Cannavale's date to this year's Tony Awards. But first, .she's starring in the British newlywed comedy I Give it a Year, out in February.
