After news on Wednesday 21st October broke out about Anna Wintour’s 21-year relationship with husband Shelby Bryan coming to n end, the internet has been keeping an eye on who her rumoured new beau is. Most people know plenty about the fashion guru herself, but the same can not be said for Bill Nighy.
Page Six announced that the Vogue editor-in-chief’s marriage with the 74-year-old businessman had crumbled, with pictures and reports of Anna and Shelby looking cosy surfacing online.
The last photos of the pair were from the start of this year. But, as it turns out, the pair have enjoyed a long-standing friendship, where they have been spotted together at events such as Fashion Week in both London and New York.
Who is Bill Nighy?
Bill Nighy is a 70-year-old British actor, most known for his role in the 2003 Christmas rom-com, Love Actually, as Billy Mack. His other prominent roles include Viktok in the horror series, Underworld, and Davy Jones in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
In terms of fashion, the actor has a reputation of always being flawlessly dressed in a bespoke suit, no matter what time of day it is.
From his past interviews, Bill gives off the impression that he is very particular in the way he does things – for example, in an interview with The New Yorker, he said (regarding his suit): “If you meet a man with the bottom button done up, call a cab. He’s not currently functioning—you shouldn’t be breathing the same air.”
Aside from that, he has a love of football and is a fan of Crystal Palace and Liverpool.
Bill Nighy’s relationships before Anna Wintour
