I agree, Rhys and Anna are together but not married. She wouldn't have had time to divorce David Thewlis according to these dates.

KellyMar 21, 2013

Hey Rhys Ifans. I want to tell you that I saw you in Neverland. My favorite part of the movie is when Hook gets his hand cut off. Hook deserved it because of the kind of man he turned out to be.

he is not at all attractive

I don`t know if Rhys is still with Kimberly, but if he is then, I hope she is making him happy. From what I have heard, Sienna treated Rhys like garbage, well just before they broke up. It`s clear to see that Rhys is a keeper. Sienna will realise that one day, but hey.. it`s her loss.

U gave the real spirit to the "Human nature"... Hope to c u in such a kind of movie again... Greetings from Serbia ;)
