Jonathan Rhys Meyers showed up at the New York premiere of his new film August Rush wearing a ring on his left ring finger. Not to worry, it’s not an engagement ring, yet…

“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."
