Jonathan Rhys Meyers By George Epaminondas InStyle, June 2006 He gives new meaning to the phrase “sharply dressed gentleman.” On a break from filming in N.Y.C., Jonathan Rhys Meyers wears slim Diesel jeans, work boots and an oversize gray hoodie printed with pink razor blades. Not everyone could get away with such a nouveau punk look, but then very few can go from starring in Elvis on TV (and winning a Golden Globe) to playing a rakish social climber in Match Pint or a secret in Mission:...

Blackbook
