He's So Fiennes

Well this is a nice distraction from the Anna Nicole Death Circus. Australia's is reporting that:

A QANTAS flight attendant faces the sack after being accused of having sex with British actor Ralph Fiennes in an aircraft toilet while flying from Australia to India.

Sydney-based Lisa Robertson, 38, met the star of The English Patient while working in the business-class cabin on flight QF 123 from Darwin to Mumbai on January 24.

In a confidential report to Qantas management obtained by The Sunday Telegraph, Ms Robertson is accused of chatting to Fiennes during the flight and being seen exiting the same toilet moments apart.

She claims Fiennes, 44, became "amorous" towards her in the toilet...

Qantas staff who were aware of the incident said last night the couple were caught after crew members waited outside the toilet.

In a statement lodged with her employer, Ms Robertson denied the allegations...

"While conversing with Mr Fiennes during my break, I expressed a need to go to the toilet," Ms Robertson said in her statement.

"I went to the nearby toilet and entered it, he followed me and entered the same toilet.

"I explained to him that this was inappropriate and asked him to leave. Mr Fiennes became amorous towards me and, after a short period of time, I convinced him to leave the toilet, which he did.

"I left the toilet a short time later. At no time did any crew member come to my assistance.

"At no time were any other customers aware of this incident. At no time did I put the Qantas name or reputation in jeopardy."

Oh, you naughty, naughty boy, Ralphie! Cornering a comely flight attendant in the airplane toilet and becoming "amorous" towards her--oh, behave! (Don't ask me why I have turned into Austin Powers. It's something that comes over me every now and then when discussing British folk.)

Anyway, Ralph is always so surprising--first he falls for the older lady who played his mother in Hamlet, then he cheats on her with a younger Romanian singer, and now he's the palest member of The Mile High Club. Who knew?
