Henry VIII may have married six times, but Jonathan Rhys Meyers – who plays the infamous king on The Tudors – isn't playing catch-up just yet.

Although he's been wearing a mysterious band on his left ring finder, the Showtime star said he's not married.

"It's from my girlfriend [Reena Hammer]," he told PEOPLE at the Sheraton New York Wednesday for the premiere of the show's second season. "It's an eternity ring. It's got a little message to me, a secret message."

When pressed on the significance of the band, the 30-year-old actor would only say, "It's just something that two people in a relationship give to each other."

Besides, Rhys Meyers added, "Everybody keeps asking me if I'm married ... It's nice to keep them guessing!"
