Flight Attendant Fired For Mid-Flight Sex With Actor

SYDNEY, Australia -- A flight attendant who told a newspaper she joined the Mile High Club with Ralph Fiennes has been fired.

Australian Lisa Robertson, 38, said she had sex with Fiennes in the Qantas plane's bathroom last month during a nine-hour flight.

Robertson told London's Daily Mail on Sunday that after her unprotected sexual encounter in the bathroom, she went to his hotel room and had sex with him several more times.

"I know some people will think it's disgusting. And I'm not proud of what I did -- it was inappropriate behavior," she told the paper. "But I don't regret it. Ralph is gorgeous and the chemistry between us was amazing. What woman wouldn't want to make love with him? This sort of attraction happens to people all the time. It's just not usually with a Hollywood star at 35,000 feet."

She told the paper that they flirted all through the flight and later in the evening when she went to take a break, "The English Patient" actor came to talk to her. She said they chatted, then began to make out before going into the bathroom to have sex.

"Ralph was a great lover. And I thought if I was going to get the sack, it would be worth it. I knew it was against the rules and wrong but I didn't care," Robertson told the paper.

A spokeswoman for Fiennes, 44, said it was Robertson who was "the sexual aggressor."

"Yet she said in her official statement [to Qantas] that he had initiated it ... and virtually accused him of forcing himself upon her," the statement said. "The point I am making is that she initiated it. He didn't force himself upon her."

Besides "The English Patient," Oscar-nominated Fiennes has starred in several films, including but not limited to the "Harry Potter" series, "The Constant Gardener," "Maid in Manhattan" and "Red Dragon."
