Jonathan Rhys Meyers hit the New York premiere of his new film August Rush wearing a ring on his left ring finger – but don’t jump to conclusions.
“It’s a ring from my girlfriend,” he confirmed to PEOPLE. (He’s back on with longtime love Reena Hammer, who was by his side for the event.) But are they engaged? “No, in love!” he exclaimed.
“I think it’s nice to go out with someone who is smarter than you,” Meyers has said of Hammer. “It’s very sexy. I believe the greatest erogenous zone in the body sits on your shoulders.”
The film – which co-stars Keri Russell, Terrence Howard and Robin Williams – is the most recent big-screen project for the star of Showtime’s The Tudors.
