Hours after shocking photos were released of married The Affair actor Dominic West, 50, getting very cozy with his co-star Lily James, 31, a friend of Dominic‘s wife Catherine FitzGerald is speaking out.
A female friend said she visited Catherine after the photos emerged and she is “shocked, heartbroken and devastated” and thought they were “very much together’ with a “good marriage,” the friend reportedly told the DailyMail.
“Catherine has seen the pictures and she’s devastated. I came over to speak with her as soon as I knew about them,” the friend told the publication. “Catherine has been trying to speak with Dominic but he’s not answering his phone. She’s totally shocked because she didn’t know anything was going on. They were very much together, so this is completely out of the blue. She thought they had a good marriage and now it’s probably over. That’s how she feels right now but the two of them need to speak but at the moment, she’s lost for words.”
Dominic and Catherine got married in 2010 and have four kids: Dora, 13, Senan, 12, Francis, 11, and Christabel, 7.
Lily and Dominic have been filming BBC’s upcoming The Pursuit Of Love together in Rome, where the photos were taken. Fans thought perhaps the PDA photos were from a scene from the project, but since it is a period piece and they are in modern street clothes, some do not believe this to be the case.
