Actor Ralph Fiennes laments deaths of his leading lady loves
UPI News Service, 08/05/2005
British actor Ralph Fiennes is keenly aware that most of his leading ladies don't make it to the end of his films.
Juliette Binoche's character died in "Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights," Kristen Scott Thomas perished in "The English Patient" and Julianne Moore expired in "The End of the Affair."
In Fiennes' upcoming romantic thriller -- based on John LeCarre's novel, "The Constant Gardener" -- Rachel Weisz plays the handsome thespian's doomed bride.
Asked about his attraction to ill-fated romances, Fiennes told United Press International: "Jennifer Lopez made it to the end of 'Maid in Manhattan.' She wasn't going anywhere."
The Oscar-nominated star of "Schindler's List," who will be seen this fall playing villain Voldemort in the fourth Harry Potter film, added: "I don't only want to play tragic love stories. The Merchant-Ivory film I just did ('The White Countess') is a love story and both partners get through to the end -- intact -- together."
