Robert Rodriguez is knockin' boots with Rose McGowan (or was, in May 2007), making him the envy of men (and probably some women)...

Well, it's about time.

Actress Rose McGowan is finally engaged to director Robert Rodridguez, a source close to the sometimes nude actress confirms.

McGowan, 34, met Rodriguez, 39, in 2006 when he directed her in the Planet Terror portion of the Grindhouse double feature.

"We are best friends," McGowan told People last June. "We instantly became really good friends."

Engagement rumors have swirled for months as the couple attended Hollywood events, and recently Rose McGowan has been spotted sporting a diamond ring on the finger you usually wear one on.

Rose McGowan previously was engaged to Marilyn Manson. Robert Rodriguez is divorced from producer Elizabeth Avellan, with whom he has five children.

A rep for McGowan declined to comment on the upcoming nuptials. Calls to Robert Rodriguez's rep were not immediately returned either.

Finally.

After repeated denials, Robert Rodriguez and the sexy Rose McGowan have finally gone public with their relationship.

The two arrived together to the premiere of Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof in Cannes last night, after rumors that they hooked up during filming of Rodriguez's Planet Terror.

The two had previously denied any on-set knocking of boots, as rumors went rabid that Rodriguez cheated on his then-wife - and Planet Terror co-producer - Elizabeth Avellan with the former Charmed witch.

At the time, reps for the film said that Elizabeth Avellan and Robert Rodriguez had split "long before" production began.

But now, it's out in the open that Rodriguez has seen Rose McGowan nude.

In doing so, he joins the likes of her ex, Marilyn Manson, her Grindhouse co-star Rosario Dawson and anyone who picked up the most recent Rolling Stone.

Home wrecker or not, the Grindhouse babe has got a new man - and probably a good shot of snagging the lead role in Robert's remake of the film Barbarella.

We'd like to recommend Antonella Barba for the part - though it would get a little confusing trying to write the press releases for the film if she got the role.

In any case, we're happy for this new couple. They might not be as cute together as Kate Bosworth and James Rousseau, but few are.
