  • Lily James was spotted kissing married actor Dominic West in Rome over the weekend.
  • The Mamma Mia! star recently split from actor Matt Smith, Dominic, however, has been married to landscape designer Catherine Fitzgerald since 2010.
  • A source close to Catherine says she is "devastated" after seeing the photos.

Lily James and Dominic West have been spotted in Rome sharing a steamy kiss, and though the Mamma Mia! star recently split from Matt Smith, The Affair actor is married to Catherine FitzGerald. It's safe to say, their budding new romance is not being well received.

Though the two are currently working on the mini-series, The Pursuit of Love, together in England, The Daily Mail obtained pictures of Lily and Dominic taken over the weekend in Italy.

In the photos taken Sunday, the couple seemed to share an electric scooter ride through the city before sitting down for lunch. On their lunch date, the two kissed while Dominic caressed Lily's head, reports E! News, and their mutual manager, Angharad Wood, was also in attendance.

The father of five was not wearing a wedding ring on the date, according to reports, but no separation from his landscape designer wife, with whom he shares four children, has been announced. The couple has been married since 2010.

As reports emerged of their weekend away, which included staying at Hotel De La Ville, a source close to Catherine tells The Daily Mail: "Catherine has seen the pictures and she's devastated. I came over to speak with her as soon as I knew about them.

"Catherine has been trying to speak with Dominic, but he's not answering his phone. She's totally shocked because she didn't know anything was going on. They were very much together, so this is completely out of the blue."  .
