Bitch of life for lovers, who had met in the year 2000 on the set of the film The 102 Dalmatians. I think it's how one acknowledges there's no returning to what existed before. And thank you. Six months of harassment: yes/no/maybe. At the time, Alice Evans was in a relationship with Olivier Picasso - the painter's grandson, as the name suggests - but had faced the obvious.

The couple have two daughters together - 11-year-old Ella and Elsie, seven.

Reflecting on lean times in his 30s, Ioan previously said: "When you're not working, in Hollywood, you get presented every week with a new poster going up and you know where you are in the pecking order". On Jan. 25, 2021, Evans took to Twitter to reveal that Gruffudd told her and their children that "he is to leave his family" starting the week of Jan. 31, 2020, per the Daily Mail. "Me and our young daughters girls are very confused and sad".


"We haven't been given a reason except that he 'no longer loves me.' I'm so sorry", she added. "When we announced that we were engaged, a lot of people told us that things can get complicated when two actors get married, because there is a lot of ego at stake, explained the hero of Fantastic four to the magazine Who".

"I didn't delete the tweet from a few hours ago about him leaving", she wrote on Tuesday. Instantly none of my other plans mattered.

However, she fell pregnant with daughter Ella after her first round of IVF, while second daughter Elsie took eight rounds of treatment.


She continued: "And then he was called onto set and I had three hours" wait, then he came back nearly in tears and said: "My god, I'm sorry I said that, it is an extraordinary coincidence". I won the lottery.

In Liar, he played rapist Andrew Earlham and starred alongside Downton actress Joanne Froggatt.

Alice was among the woman who accused Miramax producer Harvey Weinstein of sexual misconduct. Ioan Gruffudd and his wife Alice Evans would be in the process of separating.


He first featured in Welsh TV film Austin at the age of 13, before he attended the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London and appeared in TV shows and films such as Poldark, Titanic and Hornblower.
