Gruffudd: I'm smitten with America

Ioan Gruffudd has plenty of Welsh pals in Hollywood

Ioan Gruffudd has admitted he is so smitten with life in Hollywood he doesn't miss home at all any more.

The Welsh actor moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago, where he lives with wife Alice Evans, who he met while filming 102 Dalmatians and they are expecting their second child together.

Ioan, 39, confessed: "I've got to be honest with you I haven't looked back. I've been out here for 10 years. I miss my friends and my family but I honestly hadn't looked back, I'm just smitten with this place."

The Fantastic Four star - who is already father to three-year-old daughter Ella Betsi - admitted he hangs out with fellow Welsh actors such as Michael Sheen and Matthew Rhys.

He said: "There's so many of us here and so many of us fellow Brits out here, it's an amazing place to be.

"You don't really feel like you're missing home at all because everybody's out here at one point or another. So socialising is not very hard for an ex-pat now."
