He's had many an unkind comment about his looks when set against the radiant beauty of girlfriend Sienna Miller.
But Rhys Ifans seems likely to have the last laugh because psychologists reckon that happier marriages result from attractive women who wed uglier men.
And women who marry handsome men had better watch out. Men who saw themselves as better looking than their wives were more likely to be disgruntled and have negative feelings about their marriage, experts found.

Rhys Ifans has it made with beautiful fiancée Sienna Miller
The University of Tennessee study leaves 40-year-old Ifans set fair if, as expected, he marries 26-year-old Sienna this year, and it might also explain a few other couples such as Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas and Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller.
The Tennessee team tested 82 newly-wed couples for facial attractiveness and the quality of their marriage.
Their results, in the Journal of Family Psychology, suggested most men who married attractive women were happy to bask in the glory of their partner's beauty.

Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller
Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller had what it takes to be a perfect match according to scientists
But Professor Jim McNulty reported: "Men who were more attractive than their partner demonstrated a tendency to offer less emotional and practical support to their wives."
He said "evolutionary perspectives" offered an explanation.
"Attractive men have available to them more short-term mating opportunities.
"This may make them less satisfied and less committed to the marital relationship."
Strathclyde University psychologist Alastair Ross said many men enjoyed the prestige of having a beautiful wife.
"Men are rated as more likeable and friendly when they have a wife who is very attractive," he added.

The bottom line is, women are more interested in how much money a man makes than what he looks like. For women, money trumps looks every time!

As a generalization of "initial impression" in the mating game, men judge women more on physical traits, while women may consider a broader scope including looks, socio-economic status, and competition (environmental?). The personality factor comes in after the first 30 second and can also make or break.

Dianne says my money doesn't matter to her. She likes me cause I'm funny, playful, act young, and she enjoys being with me. So she doesn't mind that I'm poor and on a budget.

So, how you make a woman FEEL is also very important.

HEY, HEY, HEY, Look here Mr. Bond, steady on.....

That is quite unfair, I say!!!

Not ALL women do want a man for his money. That is only applicable to ALL Russian women.

This is 2008, most intelligent women have their own money, and if they are reeeeeally intelligent and attractive, a handsome guy next to them too. (I'm working on this theory right now).

Come to Spain, I'll buy you a tanker-load of sangria.

Stiff upper lip, old chap!!!
