    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure, beyond measure. Jonathan – take a look it has help me with my depression daily –

    Let me tell you something you already know, the world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows, it’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life; but it ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.

    And you’re told no even after you pay your dues, who’s got the right to tell you that, who? Nobody. It’s your right to listen to your gut, it ain’t nobodys right to say no, after you earn the right to be where you want to be and do what you want to do.

    Now if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth.
    But you’ve gotta be willing to take the hits.
    And not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody.
    Cowards do that and that aint you!
    You’re better than that! ~ Rocky

    Dear Jonny
    Your work in The Tudors is so wonderful I then began renting all your movies. If I am down I just put on usually The Tudors or Velvet Goldmine. I love your musical roles, you sing fantastic. Your work has never failed to lift my spirits, I just hope your spirits will lift soon as well. I really feel afraid for you, but nobody can help you if you do find that place of real self love and awareness. Then you really want to feel healthy and happy. It’s something you do for yourself, then things fall into place.

    Love and Care to you. You are an exceptional person. You have made a difference in my life because I just get lost in watching your acting. If I can ever repay your kindness in some way it would be an honor and pleasure. I wish you more in life and Blessed be your many more days.

    Stay strong.

    Sweetheart, you are the sun. May you find what you look for in life. You deserve the best.

    I love you and appreciate you precisely as you are. Not as I would like you or imagine you to be. You represent the best (and probably most spectacular) side of me. So please be. You don’t have to do anything extraordinary. Just Live, Enjoy, Love. Seek, if you like. That too is good.

    Maybe we meet in another planet, sometime. That would be great. Then again, maybe not.

    You’re always in my heart.

    JRM…”Lord, make me a channel of thy peace-that where there is hatred, I may bring love-that where there is wrong, that I may bring the spirit of forgiveness-that where there is discord, I may bring harmony-that where there is error, I may bring truth-that where there is doubt, I may bring faith-that where there is despair, I may bring hope-that where there are shadows, I may bring light-that where there is sadness, I may bring joy. Lord, grant that I may seek rather to comfort than to be comforted-to understand, than to be understood-to love, than to be loved. For it is by self-forgetting that one finds. It is by forgiving that one is forgiven. It is by dying that one awakens to Eternal Life. Amen.” ………the 11th step prayer.

    I hope you can find peace within yourself and know that you are here for a purpose.

    My wish is that you find contentment in your life. Whatever regrets or sorrows haunt you, find the strength to resolve them. Whatever ambitions drive you, find the wisdom to hope for what fits you. Above all, be kind to yourself and know that you are loved.

    First, let me say how much I love you. You are one of the most talented AND troubled people I know. How I pray for you to fully recover. From the first time I saw you in “The Tudors”, I couldn’t get enough! Not just for your acting, either, but for the person you must be to even take on that role – and at your young age! May your God-given goodness overcome all negatives in your life

    I know how it feels like to feel so alone between so many people, to have so much and yet you’re missing that one thing that you need the most… sometimes you don’t even know yourself what it is until it kicks you in the face, I hope it kicks you in the face too like it did me Jonathan… that wonderful thing called LIFE! Live it to the fullest, some of us, or our loved ones, don’t get that chance anymore… You are in my prayers and thoughts, and I hope you will find your way back out of this dark period you’re going through now… I hope you can read our posts somehow… Love from Belgium xxx

    Searching the internet where to get an autograph of Jonathan Rhys Meyers for a good friend of mine I ended up here. Reading the latest news made me think of some very interesting experiences I made working with Native American Artists and Actors a few years ago. Most of the times we all want to be famous or at least more noticed. I experienced first hand what it means to be famous and to be honest, since then I love my simple life! Rumors can destroy ones life – bad enough … and if these stories about Jonathan are for a fact, I feel sorry for him that they got published. I only can imagine how he feels – but I guess I have a close idea. I have never been in a situation like this by myself, but a lot of my clients. Actually this was one of the reasons why I finally gave up my business. The stories of my clients often made me cry and I was unable to help them. I’m still in contact with some actors and their families and all I can do is to offer my friendship – more than once I was writing emails all night long instead of talking in person. If this message really gets forwarded to Jonathan I want to tell him:
    Dear Jonathan, I really hope that you have lots of friends by your side you can talk to … or email with. As far as I know you have a brother who surely cares for you. I’ve been in contact with Ali once or twice on his band’s myspace account and on facebook without knowing he is your brother. He seems to be a nice guy. I hope I will get the autograph for my friend sending a request to the address Ali posted on another fanpage. I also hope it will come together with some good news… I wish you only the best for your future life and as far as I can tell from reading all these messages here, there are a lot of people/fans who care for you!!! This is a great gift. Wishing you happiness and peace… and tell Ali “Hi” for me :) (don´t think he will remember me LOL) It was nice meeting you here on the internet – I will watch out for you now.

    Sending you a friendship hug from Germany! -Anne-

    I think you are amazing and you are a truly brilliant actor. I loved The Tudors, you were great. I can’t wait to see more of you in the future and I do hope you get through this troubled time. We are all behind you and wishing you love, happiness and a great future. If one speaks or acts with a pure mind, happiness follows like a shadow. The person born with a talent they are meant to use will find their greatest happiness in using it. Keep your chin up :)

    He looks like a wonderful human being and worth so much more than all the rubbish written in rags. Keep up, Jonathan. I hope someday you’ll discover for yourself how brilliant you are.

    Jonathan, my English is not perfect but I want to tell you that you are amazing, full of light, talented, beautiful. These in my prayers every day. Strength and much love from the end of the world. Tierra del Fuego, CHILE. This place is a paradise …. I’ll wait … LOVE, LOVE , LOVE
    This song is for you

    Have you lost your way?
    Livin’ in the shadow of the message that you made
    And so it goes
    Everything inside your circle starts to overflow
    Take a step before you leap
    Into the colours that you seek
    You give back what you give away
    So don’t look back on yesterday
    Wanna scream out
    No more hiding
    Don’t be afraid of what’s inside
    Gonna tell ya you’ll be alright
    In the Aftermath
    Anytime anybody pulls you down
    Anytime anybody says you’re not allowed
    Just remember you are not alone
    In the Aftermath
    You feel the weight
    Of lies and contradictions that you live with every day
    It’s not too late
    Think of what could be if you rewrite the role you play

    We all love you and want you to succeed! The film industry is a rough business, but you can handle it. You can handle anything. Your talent is beyond compare. You have a ton of people who admire you. Please don’t think that there isn’t anyone who cares. Listen to the song “Colorblind” by The Counting Crows. It always helps me out when I’m having a hard time. Take care of yourself!
