Ralph Fiennes tops Heath Ledger as top movie villain

Ralph Fiennes

Ralph Fiennes’ Lord Voldemort character in the Harry Potter films has been named the best movie villain of all time – beating Heath Ledger’s Joker into fifth place.

Ledger’s performance in new Batman sequel The Dark Knight, the last movie he completed before his death in January, has been lauded by critics and tipped for an Oscar nomination.

But editors of Moviefone rank him behind Fiennes; James Earl Jones and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader; Margaret Hamilton’s Wicked Witch of the West and Sir Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lector in the onscreen evil stakes.

A Moviefone editor explains the decision to crown Voldemort the most dastardly, “He is the most powerful dark wizard to ever wave a wand. What’s more, he schemes to dominate the whole world. Without his slithering presence, would J.K. Rowling be the best-selling author of all time? The answer, a resounding “No.”

The top ten is as follows:
1: Lord Voldemort, Harry Potter – Ralph Fiennes
2: Darth Vader, Star Wars -James Earl Jones, Hayden Christensen
3. Wicked Witch Of The West, The Wizard Of Oz – Margaret Hamilton
4. Hannibal Lecter, Silence Of The Lambs – Anthony Hopkins
5. Joker, The Dark Knight – Heath Ledger
6. Goldfinger, Goldfinger – Gert Frobe
7. Chigurgh, No Country For Old Men – Javier Bardem
8. Hans Gruber, Die Hard – Alan Rickman
9: Queen, Snow White And The Seven Dwarves – Lucille La Verne.

Ralph Fiennes Caught In Second Sex Scandal


English actor Ralph Fiennes incurred the wrath of a Belgium hotel boss after he reportedly frolicked naked in a swimming pool with four women. British newspaper The Sun reports The English Patient star, 44, and his female companions disturbed guests at the Hotel Tuilerieen in Bruges.

Hotel manageress Patricia Homble says, “I wasn’t happy about it.”

Fiennes is currently in the stunning Belgium city filming comedy In Bruges, which also stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson.

Last month, Qantas flight attendant Lisa Robertson was fired from the airline after she admitted she had sex with the actor in a lavatory during a long-haul flight in January.

Ralph Fiennes part of the mile high club?


A flight attendant accused of having sex in an aircraft toilet with actor Ralph Fiennes was in hiding last night after being grounded without pay.

Other crew members claimed Lisa Robertson had a seven-mile-high fling in business class with The English Patient star.

But she insists he followed her into the small cubicle where, with the door locked, she repelled his advances.

Qantas has taken suggestions of a liaison seriously and has stood her down while it investigates.

She will be fired if it finds sex did take place.

Miss Robertson, 38, admits chatting to 44-year-old Mr Fiennes on a flight from Darwin, Australia, to Mumbai on January 24 but says that when she told him she needed to go to the toilet he followed her in and became “amorous”.

Two crew members who saw her talking to Mr Fiennes waited outside and caught the pair leaving. They reported the incident to a senior crew member.

Miss Robertson was forced to explain two breaches of corporate and cabincrew policies – letting Mr Fiennes sit in a crew seat as they chatted in her rest break and being in the toilet with him.

In her statement to bosses, which was leaked to a Sydney newspaper, she said: “While conversing with Mr Fiennes during my break, I expressed a need to go to the toilet. I entered it, he followed me and entered the same toilet.

“I explained to him that this was inappropriate and asked him to leave.

“Mr Fiennes became amorous towards me and, after a short period of time, I convinced him to leave the toilet. I left a short time later. At no time did any crew member come to my assistance.

“At no time were any other customers aware of this incident. At no time did I put the Qantas name or reputation in jeopardy.”

Miss Robertson, from Sydney, admitted that the actor had visited her in the crew rest area during her break to chat.

But she said she was simply doing her job, adding: “This is common practice on long flights to build a rapport with passengers.”

Miss Robertson, who was a police officer for 14 years, claims she has been commended several times for her services as a flight attendant.

Qantas said: “A flight attendant has been stood down as a result of an incident on a flight.”

Mr Fiennes, who is dating Belfast-born interior designer Sirin Lewenden, was flying to India as a Unicef ambassador to promote awareness of HIV and safe sex at the time.

The star of Schindler’s List had been in Sydney to perform in a one-man show.

He will appear in the summer as evil wizard Lord Voldemort in Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix.

Mr Fiennes gained a reputation as a womaniser after leaving his wife Alex Kingston for Francesca Annis, who is 18 years his senior. He has also been linked to actresses Gina Gershon, Jennifer Lopez and Ellen Barkin.

His agent could not be contacted for comment last night.
