Boyle went to university with actress Frances Barber, and they briefly dated.

Boyle turned down a knighthood offered to him by Queen Elizabeth II for his work as Artistic Director of the 2012 Olympic Games.

Boyle was a former friend of Ewan McGregor, and promised him the starring role in "The Beach." However, the studio wanted a more well-known actor, and the role was instead given to Leonardo DiCaprio. McGregor was deeply offended and hasn't spoken to Boyle since.

Boyle is dating Rosario Dawson.
