In recent years, Evans has been in the news for her public divorce from actor Ioan Gruffudd. The couple had been married for 14 years and have two daughters together. In the wake of her divorce, Evans has spoken out about her financial struggles. She has said that she is unable to afford to pay her mortgage or her daughter's school fees. As we detail in a moment, in June of 2022 she even went so far as to launch a GoFundMe page to help raise money to cover basic living expenses for her and her children. She has also said that she has been the victim of online abuse and harassment. More info on her financial issues in the next section:

Financial Issues

In December 2022 Ioan Gruffudd filed a legal request to allow him to sell the $2 million San Diego home he once shared with Alice. In his filings Ioan claimed to no longer have any funds to be able to afford the payments and had incurred over $20,000 in debt from overdue bills and taxes. He claimed Alice made $43,000 in the prior year and had $133,000 in a UK bank account. He further claimed:

"I do not have any remaining sources of funds I can use to pay the expenses for the La Jolla residence, or any other living expenses for myself, Alice or the children, for any extended period of time.

I currently have about $2,829 in my American bank accounts, and approximately £12,193 in my bank account in the United Kingdom.

I do not have any investment accounts, or any liquid retirement accounts that can be accessed without penalties. I am currently paying $2,348 per month for health insurance for myself, Alice and the children.

I believe Alice is capable of contributing to the La Jolla residence expenses short-term. However, based on the information I have, I understand and believe Alice cannot afford to pay the expenses for the residence long-term."

Several months earlier, Alice launched a GoFundMe page seeking help to pay essentials for her children. The GoFundMe ultimately raised a little over $5,000 of its $25,000 goal. In the listing she said:

"In August 2020, just as the pandemic was really kicking in, my entire world fell apart. Since that date I have been not only struggling as a single mother to my babies, but also trying to cover bills and food and legal fees (ha! don't even talk to me about legal fees) which dwarf any other expense in my life and have finally drained everything – savings, acccounts, pension, the lot.

Yesterday all my accounts ran out and I couldn't buy anything. On the same day, my husband's lawyer sent me a letter telling me I was due in court on August 2nd to argue 'my case' in the divorce,' she wrote.

I currently have no lawyer and no funds to pay one. If I don't turn up at court I will be in contempt, and I have no idea what will happen to me or my kids at that point.

I'm asking for help – something I've never done in my life and never expected to do. I have no parents or extended family to borrow from . Just me, my brother and his wife in the uK and my two kids here in Los Angeles. Yes, it's embarrassing. But here I am. Anything you can spare will help."

Early Life

Alice Jane Evans was born on July 2, 1968, in Bristol, England. Her father, David Evans, was a professor of applied mathematics at Bristol University, and her mother, Janet Evans, was a teacher of English literature. Alice has two brothers, Anthony and Philip.

Evans attended Henbury school in Bristol, and then went on to study French and Italian at University College London. After graduating, she moved to Paris to study acting at the Cours Florent.


Alice Evans's acting career initially took off in France, where she starred in the 1999 film "Une pour toutes," directed by Claude Lelouch. This romantic comedy about three actresses struggling to find happiness and success provided Evans with the breakthrough role that would lead to further opportunities in the entertainment industry.

In the early 2000s, Evans transitioned to Hollywood, showcasing her talent in various films. She played a supporting role in Disney's live-action sequel "102 Dalmatians," where she portrayed Chloe Simon, the human protagonist.
