Chicago Sun-Times

FaceTime: Q&A with Jonathan Rhys Meyers By Cindy Pearlman Chicago Sun-Times, January 11, 2006 Jonathan Rhys-Meyers makes a point out of it: The male lead of “Match Point” hasn’t changed his life thanks to fabulous reviews. “I’m back in England at the moment. My agents and managers are like, ‘You should be in America walking on air,’ ” he says. “But maybe that’s not the best thing for a 28-year-old male to be doing.” In the movie, he plays a real cad who is cheating with Scarlett Johansson. In...

Match Point

London Calling, With Luck, Lust and Ambition By A. O. SCOTT New York Times, December 28, 2005 Because Woody Allen’s early films are about as funny as any ever made, it is often assumed that his temperament is essentially comic, which leads to all manner of disappointment and misunderstanding. Now and then, Mr. Allen tries to clear up the confusion, insisting, sometimes elegantly and sometimes a little too baldly, that his view of the world is essentially nihilistic. He has announced, in movie after movie, an absolute lack of...

Evening Standard

Advantage Jonny By Edward Helmore Evening Standard, December 2, 2005 Born in poverty in Ireland, lost in drink on the set of ‘Alexander’, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers has turned a corner to work with Woody Allen and Tom Cruise. It’s time to clean up, he tells Edward Helmore. With a super-sized plate of scrambled eggs and side order of bacon untouched in front of him, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is holding court on what must be every actor’s favourite subject — himself. He is an engaging character, easily charismatic enough to...

Wonderland

The Tinkerman By Nicholas Barber Wonderland, December/January 2006 Heralded as one of Britain’s brightest young actors, Jonathan Rhys Meyers already has an impressive CV that should have seen him make the big time long ago. Somehow it has eluded him. Until now, reckons Nicholas Barber The summer before last, Jonathan Rhys Meyers was slaving away on Woody Allen’s latest film, Match Point, a job that required him to spend a fair amount of time rubbing baby oil into Scarlett Johanssen’s back. “It’s all in a day’s work, really,” says...

New York Times

At Home in Oliver’s Macedonia and Woody’s London By Sharon Waxman New York Times, November 6, 2005 He’s lanky and looks dangerous, with his ice-blue eyes and wax-white complexion. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, who plays an Irish tennis pro flirting with the British upper crust in Woody Allen’s dark new drama, “Match Point” (Dec. 28), greets a visitor at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles wearing a layered grunge look: beat-up leather jacket over hooded sweatshirt over T-shirt and ripped bell-bottom jeans. His cowboy boots are hand-tooled and look as...

Mixte

Boy on Fire By Dave Calhoun Mixte, September 2005 He’s charmed Hollywood with his sultry pout, playing rockstars and tearaways. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers talks about working with Woody Allen and donning Elvis’ quiff. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers has a lot of balls. I know this because I’m standing next to the 28-year-old actor in photographer David Bailey’s central London studio and I can see his testicles protruding from within a very tight pair of stylish white briefs. I know this for another reason too: only someone with balls of absolute steel would...

Match Point

Match Point By Todd McCarthy Variety, May 12, 2005 A change of scenery does Woody Allen a world of good in “Match Point.” Making his first film in the U.K. with a story originally conceived for New York, Allen once again takes up issues of morality and guilt in what amounts to “An English Tragedy,” as in Theodore Dreiser. Well-observed and superbly cast picture is the filmmaker’s best in quite a long time and as such reps an attractive potential acquisition for a U.S. distrib keen to break Allen’s...

I-D Magazine

Jonathan By Skye Sherwin I-D Magazine, February 2005 Beautiful and damned: Rhys Meyers is back to hustle Jonathan Rhys Meyers struts into the bar in the slinkiest bar of tan leather trousers, lights a cigarette, fiddles iwth his cup and saucer and proceeds to throw out seductive glances with giddy momentum: part ingenue, part hustler. This is clearly a good time for Meyers. First up he has Mira Nair’s Vanity Fair adaptation in which he plays spoiled party child George Osborne. Then there’s his starring turn in...
