Keri Russell announced 3 weeks ago that she and husband Shane Deary had separated. Like Orlando Bloom and Miranda Kerr, they confirmed that they’d been apart for a few months, since the summer. Now Page Six reports that she might be dating Matthew Rhys, her The Americans co-star.
Keri Russell is spending a lot of time with her “The Americans” co-star Matthew Rhys after announcing her divorce — sparking rumors the pair are embarking on a romance. Multiple sources tell Page Six that Russell — who announced earlier this month that she and her husband Shane Deary have split after seven years of marriage — has been spotted “looking affectionate” with handsome Welsh-born actor Rhys, her on-screen husband on the hit FX show.
One source who spotted the disarmingly charming Rhys, who is single, and Russell recently sharing an intimate lunch at ABC Kitchen, told us, “Seeing the way they are together I could have sworn they were a couple. They were so touchy-feely, drinking and laughing.”
Another source tells us that Russell and Rhys have become such close friends they have spent time with their respective families.Russell, 37, and Rhys, 39, are currently in New York filming Season 2 of “The Americans,” in which they star as Soviet KGB agents posing as a married couple. Their reps didn’t respond to repeated requests for comment.
Are you reading the same subtext I’m reading? Was there overlap?
Here’s a shot of Keri and Matthew promoting The Americans in October. Duana keeps trying to get me to watch that show and I can’t get into it. Maybe this weekend. As for Matthew Rhys – you know, the only other time he’s appeared on my blog was a few years ago in relation to…Sienna Miller. Rhys and Miller dated after working together on The Edge Of Love. And he introduced her to Balthazar Getty. Apparently Rhys was “livid” about their affair. But between Rhys and Getty there was Rhys Ifans. Gross. Remember Sienna and Rhys Ifans?
