Welsh actor Rhys Ifans has sparked speculation he's romancing Anna Friel after he was photographed wearing a robe at her Hollywood home.
The Pushing Daisies actress split from Harry Potter star David Thewlis in December (10) after nine years together.
The year after that, Ifans rejected grooming and general communication skills to play the role that was to give him international recognition, starring as Hugh Grant's hygienically challenged roommate in the romantic comedy Notting Hill.
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.
Welsh actor Rhys Ifans has not only one of the most distinctive names in the film industry but also one of its most idiosyncratic appearances.
