They may not have gotten married yet – but Alec Baldwin
and fiancée Hilaria Thomas
have jetted off to Rome for a romantic getaway.
Yes, the actor is there for work – promoting the Woody Allen-directed ensemble comedy To Rome with Love,
which opens in Italy on April 20 – but that didn't seem to preclude him and Thomas for making ambitious plans.
"Off for a much needed trip," he Tweeted
at Thomas, 28, on Wednesday.
And she replied, via Twitter
: "Good food, vino, cafe, familia, museums, siestas...I can't wait."
After touching down Thursday morning with plenty of luggage in tow, Baldwin, 54, continued to express his pleasure at being abroad. "So nice to be in Rome, where the paparazzi don't step on a baby to get a photo," he wrote.
Their arrival caught the attention of at least one seemingly admiring (and religious) onlooker. Come si dice "nun" in italiano?
