Ralph Fiennes is photographed strolling around Rome while embracing a mystery blonde – who shows off a gold engagement ring
It’s fair to say he’s had a colorful love life, but has actor Ralph Fiennes finally found someone to settle down with?
The 60-year-old Harry Potter star was spotted arm in arm with a mysterious blonde woman in Rome this week in pictures given to Richard Eden by the Chron.
And what makes their outing more intriguing is that his companion flashed an engagement ring during the walk.
Ralph spent some time in the Italian capital while filming his latest film Conclave, a thriller based on the Robert Harris novel of the same name.
The actor and his apparent love interest enjoyed the Sunday stroll and headed out for lunch before buying some groceries on the way back.

Wedding bells: And what makes their outing more intriguing is that his companion flashed an engagement ring during the walk
The actor’s guest crossed her arm with his as they walked through town as she wore beige wide-leg jeans and a plain white T-shirt.
She added a colorful cravat and black blazer to the ensemble and appeared to be wearing a shiny engagement skirt.
While Ralph looked casual in a triple denim jacket, shirt and denim combo while wrapping himself up in a scarf.
The duo appeared in high spirits as they chatted and beamed after picking up grocery shopping.
While the identity of his hostess is unknown, it seems Ralph may have disappeared from the market again.
A spokesman for the actor could not be reached for comment.
Ralph was previously married to actress Alex Kingston, 59, but the couple parted ways in 1997 after 14 years together.
It has been claimed that the screen star was having an affair with Francesca Annis, who is 17 years his senior – and the couple are said to have started a romance in the same year.
But after more than a decade together, the actor was once again the focus of more affair rumors.

He and Francesca then split over his alleged infidelity with Romanian singer Cornelia Crisan, 42.
Ralph is no stranger to controversy, and in the late 2000s he faced further scrutiny when a flight attendant who seduced him on a Qantas jet admitted to having previously worked as a prostitute.
Ralph has been photographed in Rome over the past few weeks heading to the film set to play the lead role of Cardinal Lomeli in his new film, which focuses on the hypothetical behind-the-scenes story of what happens at the Vatican after the Pope dies.
Conclave also stars Stanley Tucci as Cardinal Bellini, John Lithgow as Cardinal Tremblay and Isabella Rossellini as Sister Agnes.
The strip is produced by House Productions and FilmNation Entertainment.
