Rhys Ifans forms a new band

Rhys Ifans

Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is returning to his rock roots – he’s teaming up with his former Super Furry Animals bandmate Dadydd Ieuan to form a new group.

The pair has recruited fellow musicians Dic Ben, Kris Jenkins and Nick Hilton and named the band The Peth, and they will release their debut album The Golden Mile in September.

The Notting Hill actor was part of the original line-up of the Super Furry Animals, but left the group before they rose to national fame in the U.K. in the mid-1990s.

Sienna Miller: Rhys Ifans is perfect

Sienna Miller & Rhys Ifans

Sienna Miller is stunned people find her relationship with Rhys Ifans “unlikely” – because they couldn’t be more suited.

The Layer Cake star admits she was surprised by the media’s interest in her romance with the Welsh Notting Hill actor, and finds it strange people think they are an odd couple.

She says, “I don’t know why people find it so unlikely. We started as friends and then it just slowly developed. I don’t think either of us was expecting it, but it truly has been the most wonderful thing. I totally love Rhys but most of all, he’s my best friend. He makes me laugh. Not just a little laugh – he can completely floor me laughing.”

Rhys Ifans denies summer wedding to Sienna Miller

Rhys Ifans & Sienna Miller

Rhys Ifans has denied rumors he is set to marry his fiancee Sienna Miller in a summer ceremony this year.

The couple was reportedly preparing to wed in August – a year after Miller rejected his first proposal, when the Notting Hill star asked for her hand in marriage by sending her a cryptic message in Welsh, which read: “Marry The Misfit”.

The Factory Girl star said no for the second time when Ifans asked again at her 26th birthday party in December – but she finally agreed to marry him on his third attempt in March.

Reports have since been rife that the couple is planning a low-key celebration in the coming months, but Notting Hill actor Ifans has dismissed the claims.

He tells Britain’s Closer magazine, “I’m not marrying Sienna this summer. I’m taking a break at the moment and just want to chill out.”

And, despite recent speculation of a split, Miller insists they are happier than ever: “I am in love – Rhys and I are the best of mates and life is going great.”

Are Sienna Miller and Rhys Ifans over?


From the Daily Star:

It is with heavy hearts that we have to report that Sienna Miller and Rhys Ifans have taken that dreaded step towards ending their relationship – they’re having a “break”.

Our favourite celebrity coupling – and one that combines the looks of Village Of The Damned with the sartorial rigour of an Oxfam bin – were hurtling towards the altar.

But party-loving Sienna, 26, has struggled with the idea of being tied down and has been giving 39-year-old Rhys sleepless nights after hitting the town alone.

We hear the final straw came when Sienna was moved to tears over a picture of her ex-lover Jude Law, 35, kissing Kimberly Stewart, 28, and Rhys’s plucky attempts to make her smile backfired terribly.

Our wonky-eyed Cupid told us: “Sienna and Rhys have been rowing a lot lately.

“He’s sensed that she isn’t quite ready to settle down and has been getting quite jealous and possessive, especially when he found out she’d partied with her ex Matthew Rhys recently in LA.

“Sienna only accepted his proposal on the third time of asking because she really loves him and didn’t want to lose him, despite feeling a bit unready for marriage. It all came to a head, however, when Sienna literally burst into tears over pictures of Jude kissing Kimberly.

“It really took her by surprise because she no longer has feelings for him but it brought back a lot of heartbreak.”

Our mole added: “Rhys can always make her laugh and tried to do so this time by singing Kimberly’s dad’s tune Do Ya Think I’m Sexy? while performing a joke striptease.

“This time though it didn’t work and Sienna became really irritated.

“She wasn’t in the mood to laugh and just wanted Rhys to take things more seriously.

“That really got through to him and they sat down, had a heart-to-heart and decided the bickering had to stop and they should take a break.”

Sienna Miller wants babies!

Sienna Miller

Babies weren’t on the agenda for Sienna Miller during her roller-coaster romance with Jude Law, but it looks like motherhood may now be an option with current beau Rhys Ifans.

“I really want bubbies (sic) – I always have,” Miller told the June U.K. edition of InStyle magazine during a baby shower for her elder sister Savannah.

“I mean, I’m nearly 27 and you have to think about these things, don’t you?” posited Miller. “And Sav proves you can work and be a mum. It still scares me, though.”

The expectant Savannah – who already has one son, Moses – held the baby shower in west London, with a rock music soundtrack playing on a vintage 1950s record player. Guests snacked on with multicolored cupcakes, salads and tartlets, all washed down with Earl Grey tea and rosé Champagne.

Although baby showers are still a new concept in Britain, the Millers are more familiar with them than most, having an American father.

During the bash, celebrity hairdresser Nicky Clarke asked Sienna about her Welsh squeeze, scruffy actor Ifans (best known stateside for his role in 1999′s Notting Hill).

“[He's] mad as a box of frogs – but I’m not exactly sane,” quipped the actress, who is already certain her sister’s baby-to-be is a girl.

Although she has the fame, Sienna still claims her sister inherited all the desirable traits. As she told InStyle, “When I was born, Savannah stole the height, the legs, the boobs, the spirituality.”
