Why Rufus can’t be tempted by Eve
DESPITE a 15-year age gap, starlet Alice Eve, 26, and her brooding thespian boyfriend Rufus Sewell, 41, have been an enduring item since meeting on the set of Sir Tom Stoppard’s play Rock ’N’ Roll two years ago. But with twice-married Sewell dividing his time between London and Los Angeles, friends say his transatlantic commute has taken its toll and the relationship has run its course. Happily, Oxford-educated Alice (right) — daughter of actors Trevor Eve and Sharon Maughan and who has previously spoken of her desire not to be tied down — is taking the split in her stride. On Tuesday she was spotted merrily enjoying the festivities at jeweller Tiffany’s skating party, where guests included fellow actress Emma Watson, model Jade Parfitt and girl-about-town Pippa Middleton. A spokesman for Alice, who has just completed a film about an unsuccessful relationship entitled She’s Out Of My League, declined to comment.
