    Default Straight out of his show The Affair - Dominic West spotted kissing Lily James

    Dominic West's Cheating Scandal

    Here’s a celebrity cheating scandal that hits all the triggers. An older married actor, who starred in a series about a couple’s affair, is seen in a lascivious embrace with a younger actress in photos taken by paparazzi… in Rome, no less! Rome, of course, is the setting for Fellini’s La Dolce Vita, which of course is when the term “paparazzi” was first coined. If this is a conspiracy it’s beyond cruel.

    Dominic West and Catherine Fitzgerald have been married ten years. They have four children. This weekend, he was in Rome with Lily James. They’ve worked together in the past and spent the summer shooting The Pursuit of Love, adapted from the Nancy Mitford novel by Emily Mortimer, who is also directing. Dominic was not NOT in Rome for this project but he was in Rome to project his lust onto Lily. You can see the photos at the Daily Mail here - there’s no other way to interpret these shots, at least not to me. This man looks horny.

    As for Lily, her manager was also with them so I’m not sure what that means but the last we checked on her love life, she was hanging out with Chris Evans. A few weeks after that it was reported that she and Matt Smith were trying to give their relationship another go but that it didn’t work out. Now she’s mixed up in Dominic’s drama. And let’s be clear – it’s HIS drama. Lily’s not the one who’s married. We also don’t know how he characterised his marriage to her. Did he tell her that his marriage was over? He hasn’t been wearing his ring. If it is over though, his wife certainly wasn’t aware.

    After the pictures were published, Catherine’s friends came forward to say she was “shocked” and “devastated” so, clearly, she had no idea that he had given himself the all clear to help himself to a new romance.

    But now the story has taken another turn. Dominic rushed home after he got exposed and today, he and Catherine posed outside their home, and kissed for the cameras! You can see those photos here. Then they made a statement – which, really, is probably HIS statement:

    “Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together. Thank you. Catherine & Dominic”

    This is so old school – the nostalgia! Because you know what works better these days rather than inviting photographers and media to gawk outside your house? INSTAGRAM. Dominic West doesn’t appear to have a public Instagram (if he does I can’t find it) but there’s another use for it. Pro tip: keep an Instagram account handy so that when you cheat on your wife, you can deny it on the feed. Or is that more a stories post?

    To me, on my Photo Assumption (the game of baseless conclusions), Catherine looks mortified. It’s compound mortification. It’s already enough that your husband is out here nuzzling another woman, and now you have to engage in some kind of forced display of unity to save his reputation when your heart has just been torn apart. That would be some f-cksh-t for anyone. But especially for someone from her social class. Or…maybe not?

    Catherine is an aristocrat. Her father was the 29th Knight of Glin. She owns Glin Castle, the ancestral home of the Fitzgerald family for 800 years! A few years ago Catherine and Dominic invited Architectural Digest onto the estate for a tour. The video is below. They tell stories about some of the ancestors, including one dude who was such a player, he used to have multiple mistresses and would house them in various cottages on the property. Maybe Catherine and Dominic are living up to the spirit of whatever it was that went down in that castle over the centuries. Open marriage?

    If that’s the case though, I’m not sure why her friends are going around telling media outlets how upset she is. You minimise a story by shrugging it off. You give more heat to a story by claiming outrage and then organising a photo shoot as “proof” of your commitment. These two might have a castle but they have zero crisis management.

    Dominic West and wife insist marriage ‘is strong’ after he’s spotted with Lily James

    Dominic West and wife Catherine FitzGerald insisted in a handwritten note shown to paparazzi that their marriage “is strong” — and kissed for photographers outside their family home — after pictures emerged this week of West getting cozy with actress Lily James in Rome.

    “Our marriage is strong and we’re very much still together,” read the note, signed by both West and FitzGerald. “Thank you.”

    Notably, “The Affair” actor wasn’t wearing his wedding ring and FitzGerald kept her left hand in her pocket. West, 50, declined to answer any questions regarding his recent Roman holiday with 31-year-old James, who is his co-star in the series “Pursuit of Love.”

    West and FitzGerald have been married since 2010 and have three children together. West also shares one child with ex Polly Astor.

    I must start with "who"?
    This is bizarre. I don't know how he got his wife to pose with him, but the note is hilarious. Who does that?

    I really have no opinion other than he's a hot piece. That is all.

    I have an irrational dislike for him because of his character in The Affair, he was such a douche. But now that I know he's also a douche IRL, I guess it's not so irrational.

    I've only ever watched him playing Fred West in Appropriate Adult and he was creepy AF in that.

    I think he should make a bunch of laminated copies and hand them out to random people.

    He's a complete douche. But he did say monogamy is unnatural so I'm sure his wife is aware what he gets up to.

    He plays a lot of creeps.

    Oh and this
    Dominic West claimed it is 'daft to kick someone out over a fling' and suggested 'women should be more indulgent of affairs' in an interview from 2016 which has come to light in the wake of his tryst with Lily James.

    McNulty! From The Wire! Sorry, huge Wire fan here. lol. Unless you meant Lily James in which case she was in Downton Abbey and War and Peace and some other stuff.

    I can't unsee him as Fred West. Even if he did play McNulty. Terrifying movie, terrifying story.

    Trixie, The Affair was such trash TV it's hard to believe it went on as long as it did. He was so incredibly unlikable in that show. I expected so much more from that show than what was delivered. I think even one of the co-creators left the show after the first or second season because they hated the drippy soap opera it disintegrated into.

    And now for the ridiculous photo.



    So desperate. So cringeworthy.

    I was looking at pictures of his wife - that is a hot mom of three. Kind of looks like a cross between Laura Dern and Pam Dawber. It must be pretty crazy to be a Hollywood person and never be happy with how good you've got it.

    Of course mcnulty’s a whore! If anything I’m surprised we haven’t been given evidence of this before. Agree he’s a hot piece and I totally would, aristo wife and all. He’s hot as fuck. Besides, their statement of how they’re still very much together is basically a public admission that they have an open marriage, or at least he has an open license to cheat. Just probably not so publicly.

    eta: his butt looks great in those pants

    Exactly. I think in a number of instances the person has a "provisional" license - as in "just don't get caught, or you have to take the fall because I'm not going to bail you out by explaining our situation".

    Same (and it carries over to Ruth Wilson too), and I dont think he's attractive at all. Who would cheat on Pacey for him???

    I couldn't agree more. I thought it was gonna be a one-season one and done yet it went on and on and on. Sadly I watched most of it as it got more and more stupid, but I gave up on the last season. It was on my dvr but I couldn't bring myself to watch, maybe I watched the final episode, I don't even remember I think I blocked it out lol. Just was glad it was gone. The Dominick West character and his magic dick was just too much, he was a total narcissistic cad but every woman who came within 10 feet wanted to fuck him? GMAB.

    the affair has been on my list forever but i haven't gotten round to it. as much as i love mcnulty, i just can't with ruth wilson, or specifically her face. there's just something so very punchable about her. but i can totally buy mcnulty as a narcissist asshole with a magic dick and irresistible sex appeal.

    ^ go for it if you're into self-torture

    you'll especially love the woman who couldn't be with the narcissist asshole so she just masturbated instead, never to be heard from again.
