Los Angeles Times

For Jonathan Rhys Meyers, it’s time to grow up By William Georgiades Los Angeles Times, November 18, 2007 Setting his sights on more mature roles, the actor says he’s tired of just playing pretty boy. NEW YORK — “YOU can only do so many skinny pretty-boy roles,” declares Jonathan Rhys Meyers in a downtown New York cafe. He’s just come from a taping of “Live With Regis and Kelly,” where he was interviewed by guest host Vince Vaughn. “I decided I had to become more masculine and move away...

The Times

Arise, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, king of cool By James Mottram The Times, November 10, 2007 From child delinquent to a hot Henry VIII, it’s all turning out rather well for the Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers There’s an air of the rake about Jonathan Rhys Meyers. It’s not just his work, from his Bowie-inspired breakthrough in Velvet Goldmine to his sensational turn as Henry VIII in The Tudors. There’s more to it than that. It’s something to do with the physicality of this Irishman, the way he holds himself...

Details

Jonathan Rhys Meyers By Karltaro Greenfeld Details, Holiday 2007 Having shot from a breakout role as the pretty-boy coach in Bend It Like Beckham to top billing as a sexed-up young Henry VIII in The Tudors, the steely-eyed Irish actor is ready to be known as a lean, mean testosterone machine—even if he’s not much of an alpha male when staring down the barrel of a gun in real life. “PUSSY!” Jonathan Rhys Meyers bellows. “I want pussy!” We are on a crowded street next to St....

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Rules Our World By Shawna Malcom Cosmopolitan, Cosmo Men Special, November 2007 His confidence, naughty sense of humor, and gorgeous looks make Johnny (he told us to call him that) perfect for the cover of Cosmo Men. When you meet Jonathan, you’re struck by how familiar he acts…getting in your personal space in a provocative, almost unnerving way-even kissing you when he momentarily steps away, although you’ve never met before and you’re there to do a job. The combo of his flirtatiousness, Irish brogue,...

Complex

Reign Man By Justin Monroe Complex, October 2007 Years removed from his pretty-boy days, Jonathan Rhys Meyers is ready to assume the throne. Contrary to what Medieval Times employees might tell you (before the jousting, and after the appetizers), kings aren’t born, they’re made—and Jonathan Rhys Meyers is no stranger to the coronation, having already been anointed twice. As the King of (Stolen) Rock ‘n’ Roll in 2005′s TV movie Elvis and as England’s Henry VIII on Showtime’s hit The Tudors, Meyers learned that rulers grow into...

Globe and Mail

Leader of the Tudor Rat Pack By Gayle MacDonald Globe and Mail, October 8, 2007 Like most of us, Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers carried around the image in his head of King Henry VIII as “quite repulsive, overweight and racked with illness,” a stereotype reinforced by the official royal portraits painted in the latter days of the bloated king’s 38-year reign. Reached in Dublin, his birthplace, the 30-year-old star of Showtime’s hit series The Tudors (the 10-part first season is now airing on CBC-TV) says he never dreamed...

The Tudors

Treachery, treason and trollops By Patricia Treble Macleans, October 1, 2007 Rarely has a series slogan been so apt: Romance. Seduction. Murder. Just another day at the office. The Tudors is to a history lesson what Jackie Collins is to fiction-a suck ‘em in and hold ‘em drama that won’t let go. Think of the worst machinations of The Office or Desperate Housewives and then multiply by 100. The Tudors’ cool, hip and rollicking good fun never lets up, even when the script deviates from the numerous bedroom scenes...

InStyle

Jonathan Rhys Meyers By Helen Whitaker InStyle, October 2007 Those eyes, that accent… If anyone can make Henry VIII sexy, this Irishman can. We do our best not to lose our head over the 30-year-old star of The Tudors. You were brought up in Cork, moved to London and now live in LA – where do you call home these days? “LA. I’ve owned a house there for seven or eight months. It’s a very peaceful place, although it’s not the most spontaneous city. That’s what I...

Telegraph

King of the swingers Telegraph, September 29, 2007 BBC2’s new drama shows a Henry VIII far removed from the ageing monster of legend. Its writer and stars tell Michael Deacon why they’ve sexed him up Natalie Dormer, who plays Anne Boleyn, has just finished her final sex scene with Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who plays Henry VIII. “We were laughing and joking a lot,” she says. “He was winking all the time and saying, ‘Bring me Jane Seymour, I’m done with this one!’” The two were filming an episode of...

Rhys Meyers says he can relate to Henry VIII’s wild younger years in ‘The Tudors’ The Canadian Press, September 27, 2007 TORONTO – Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers knows a thing or two about wild behaviour, something he drew upon when taking on the role of a young Henry VIII in the acclaimed show “The Tudors,” premiering next week on CBC. “I was an alleged bad boy – alleged,” says the 30-year-old actor on the line from Ireland, emphasizing the word as he takes a break from filming the...
