Joss Stone is trading in her soulful singing voice for a German accent.

Starting Sunday, the British musician plays Anne of Cleves – the fourth wife of England's King Henry VIII – in the season's last two episodes of The Tudors.

"I enjoyed wearing the dresses," Stone tells PEOPLE of her 16th-century wardrobe. "But the thing about Anne of Cleves is, she was not supposed to be attractive. Anne, let's be honest, was described as quite frumpy and ugly. But hey, I did it! I did my best! They had no problem making me ugly. Lots of makeup!"

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."

Jonathan Rhys Meyers hit the New York premiere of his new film August Rush wearing a ring on his left ring finger – but don't jump to conclusions.

"It's a ring from my girlfriend," he confirmed to PEOPLE. (He's back on with longtime love Reena Hammer, who was by his side for the event.) But are they engaged? "No, in love!" he exclaimed.

"I think it's nice to go out with someone who is smarter than you," Meyers has said of Hammer. "It's very sexy. I believe the greatest erogenous zone in the body sits on your shoulders."

The film – which co-stars Keri Russell, Terrence Howard and Robin Williams – is the most recent big-screen project for the star of Showtime's The Tudors.
