And a couple of blurbs from the “From Paris With Love” premiere:
Here comes Mr. Rhys Meyers, who is kind as always. He takes off his glasses for the TV cameras, and I catch him careening on his tip-toes. What?! He’s also wearing high-heeled boots. Still, he’s a true movie star, and game for everything.
In fact, girlfriend Reena is wearing her holiday swag tonight.
“We went to Christian Louboutin at Christmas and went crazy,” the Irish actor says.
“They’re on my feet right now,” the beauty says, basking in the heat. (She was shivering outside.)
What surprised him about Mr. Travolta?
“You imagine how people are and then you work with them, and obviously they’re going to be different,” Jonathan tells me. “He’s an incredibly nice guy. Sometimes you’re shocked. I find the more successful – the bigger stars that I work with, the nicer they are.”
Jonathan has high praise for the Grease icon’s mission to Haiti.
“That’s who he is as a person,” he says. “He wasn’t doing it because ‘hey, I’m a movie star and I’ve got an airplane. Let me fly down here and give you guys something.’ He did it because he’s John. And that’s just who he is. I wasn’t surprised.”
Rhys Meyers said the thriller appealed to him because he got to play a role in which he “wasn’t the manipulator.”
For the star, who worked on pic in late 2008, after completing season three of “The Tudors” and “Shelter” with Julianne Moore, the hardest part of the France shoot was “maintaining the high level of energy” that the film demanded.
“By the time Christmas came, I slept through the entire holiday,” he said.
