Ralph Fiennes -- English and Very Patient

Ralph Fiennes has played the consummate English gentleman plenty of times, and while in New York on Wednesday, he demonstrated fine -- Fiennes? -- breeding.


TMZ caught up with the Clan Fiennes trying to get a cab yesterday in Midtown, without much luck. Ralph did his best to shield an older woman guest from the pap swarm, but couldn't steer her away from them, much less the danger of oncoming cars.
