After a relationship spanning 11 years, lawyers for the British actress reported that the couple have separated.Â This announcement came after the UK newspaper, Mail on Sunday,Â printedÂ that Fiennes had been having an affair with Romanian singer Cornelia Crisan, 31.
Crisan and Fiennes had met at a party nearly two years ago and had been carrying on romantically since that time; although it looks like he will not receive sympathyÂ & support from his RomanianÂ dove.Â Â
“He was a cheat,” CrisanÂ toldÂ Mail on Sunday tabloid.Â “He used me to be there always for him, whether he needed someone to talk to or wanted a cuddle or to make love.”Â The singer went on to say, “As time went on, I stared to see more clearly, to realize that I didn’t want him at all.”
For his part, the two-time Academy award nominee denies ever having been unfaithful to Francesca Annis.Â Do they not always say that, no matter the evidence?
Fiennes and Annis originally met while starring in a 1995 stage production of “Hamlet” in which Fiennes played the title role and Annis his mother.Â That’s always a turn on, eh?Â Both ended relationships to be with one another, Fiennes to his wife of 12 years, ER’s Alex Kingston & Annis to photographer Patrick Wiseman with whom she had three children.
