His current girlfriend (24) is Ami Komai. There are photographs of them at the premier of "The Tourist". She worked in hair/makeup for CBS television.

He is dreamy, a mesmerizing actor, and his eyes are other worldly. I have been in love with him since "Dangerous Beauty." sigh . . . .

DeniseJan 8, 2011

I would like to see Rufus to a remake of The Quiet Man with Kate Winslet as his lover.

Donna KJan 7, 2011

When I read through a J D Robb novel I picture Rufus as the character Roarke and hope that one day a movie producer sees the potential for a great movie.

Oh, Rufie, will you marry me? My husband is jealous I spend more time watching you than him. I hope there is a second Pillars but you died, dang it. Perhaps you could rise from your grave or it was a dream.
