Anna found love again after split from David Thewlis

Anna Friel has spoken of her love for actor boyfriend Rhys Ifans.

The couple have been together for two years and the former Brookside star can’t stop singing the praises of Rhys, 45.

‘He’s so romantic and creative,’ gushes Anna, 36.

Anna got together with Rhys after splitting from David Thewlis in 2010 and she admits that she’ll always love her ex, who is the father of her daughter Gracie, 7.

‘We ended it when we were still good friends,’ the mum-of-one tells Celebs On Sunday.

‘If we hadn’t ended it then, it might have been different…

‘After we broke up he got together with his ex-girlfriend Emile from 16 years ago… five months afterwards I met Rhys.

‘It would have been harder if only one of us had met someone else. I will always love that man.’
