2007 - 2008Sienna Miller and Rhys Ifans, a Welsh actor, kept the love alive for awhile.
And Ifans is adamant that the public should not feel sorry for him, because he has already recovered from their failed romance.
He says, "The thing is everyone thinks I am really sad about Sienna, so I agree and say, ' Oh yes.' The fact is I'm not." » Actor-rocker Rhys Ifans has penned a bitter ballad – prompting speculation that it describes his heartbreaking split from Sienna Miller.
Many a critic agreed that Ifans virtually stole the show from his better-known co-stars, and that same year he had a chance to prove himself further in such diverse features as Heart, a black comedy in which he played a writer; and Rancid Aluminum, in which he starred as a man forced into business with the Russian mob after his father's death.
Following an unlikely appearance as a football player in The Replacements (2000) and a turn as the son of Old Scratch in Little Nicky (2000), Ifans' role as a socially challenged forest dweller turned opera-loving socialite in the eccentric Human Nature provided audiences with abundant laughs and a further glimpse into the quirkiness of a truly unique actor.
The song, called "Stonefinger," appears on an upcoming album by Ifans's band, The Peth, which has been touring Wales in the weeks since he and Miller, 26, broke up.
The lyrics are certainly poignant: "Every little thing you said would break me/All of it came true/Every bit of love I give you mock it/Yes you do." And it goes on, "Every little thing I do you hate it/Oh yes you do." Since her split from the 39-year-old Ifans, » - Simon Perry Latest: The married man accused of having an affair with Sienna Miller has denied reports he is romantically involved with the British actress.
“I can understand there’s some degree of interest, but the public pay to see Anna Friel the actress, not Anna Friel, the mum, or Anna Friel, the girlfriend.” Nor indeed, the Anna Friel of almost two decades ago.
As a 16-year-old, she appeared in the Liverpool soap Brookside for 18 months in the early Nineties and scooped the 1995 Most Popular Actress title at the National Television Awards.
Anna Friel is nestled deep inside a voluminous Joseph sweater that prettily swamps her waif-like frame.
Her hair is a chestnut tumble, brow smooth as a milkmaid, yet her wide green eyes are watchful as a startled cat.
Ifans will lead the cast as Ebenezer Scrooge, in a new adaptation of the Charles Dickens play by Jack Thorne.
