Jonathan Rhys Meyers @ Mother's Funeral

Jonathan Rhys Meyers @ Mother's Funeral

Jonathan Rhys Meyers bid his mother, Geraldine O’Keeffe, a final farewell at her funeral on Friday at St. Joseph’s Church in Glanmire, County Cork, Ireland. Mrs. Meyers O’Keeffe passed away on Tuesday morning at Mercy University Hospital following a short illness.

The Tudors actor was accompanied to the funeral by his girlfriend Reena Hammer. Fellow Irish actor Colin Farrell was also in attendance, seen embracing Jonathan (pictured below). Irish actor Cillian Murphy was also reportedly there. His flowers and card can be seen below.

JRM‘s father John O’Keeffe and his three brothers Alan, Jamie and Paul, heard Priest Noel O’Sullivan describe Mrs. Meyers O’Keeffe as a “loving, caring mother, who would go out of her way to help people.”

Our deepest condolences go out to Jonathan and his friends and family.

  • http://deleted flower

    this is so sad I wish him all the best.

  • kay

    How tasteless from the paparazzi to harass the mourning family. Even celebrities should have the right to bury their loved ones in privacy.

  • Orange Clockwork

    Of course Colin drags his trashy presence to someone’s funeral. WTF?

  • nina

    Celebrities are human too. They should have privacy at least at a funeral, that’s too much.

  • vicky

    This is disgusting.People (celebrities or not) shouldn’t be harassed when mourning for their loves ones

  • Mishaela

    orange clockwork SHUT UP please. Colin is jonny’s dearest and closest friend.they’re sad and stressed and he is there supporting a friend,you don’t know what you’re talking about

    My heart goes out to jonny,ali,jamie,paul and the meyers o’keeffe family,may geri’s memory live on in your hearts forever

  • likeomglikeomg

  • sophie

    this is really terrible that the paps are there. condolences

  • Hi

  • Anon

    I’m actually from Cork and I can’t believe that pictures were taken at a funeral it just doesnt seem right

  • Chloe

    My condolances to Jonothan & to his family.

    I love him so much….

  • Boris

    Those paps are so annoying! Get a life you idiots! Just don’t take pics of people mourning!

  • novi

    likeomglikeomg , I agree with you.
    That is so not right to took pics of his mom’s funeral. Not in intimate moments like that …

  • jekka

    there shouldn’t have been photographers there, imo

  • Boris

    Those paparazzi are dumb!

  • [~Famous~]

    Hannaaah, you’re a fcuking lame!

  • Patty

    This is very sad. Best wishes to Jonathan and his family. God help them through this difficult time.

    I have to agree though, these pics are kind of not necessary and disrespectful to the grieving family.

  • almost…

    I am all for celebrity photos and the lasted on whats going on with them. But really cant we show some class and not bother them while they are grieving. Death is hard enough without having people photographing you while its happening. You should show some class JJ and not post pictures of funerals.

  • ktt

    Ok I don’t even know who this guy is, I hope that doesn’t offend his fans. Anyway, my point is i don’t know who he is and I feel bad for him and anyone who was in attendance. What makes the paps think they have the right to invade on such a life altering day. This whole pap thing is way beyond out of control. Discusting and shame on you JJ for posting something like this. Not to mention the post you did of Zahara being a rape crime baby, try to elevate yourself to a different level JJ before you end up like perez hilton.

  • Orange Clockwork

    Mishaela, sit the fuck down and ask yourself, “would I want anyone smoking at my mother’s funeral?”

    If you answer yes to this question, then you are probably just as trashy and unsympathetic as Colin.

  • Nikki

    To take photos of someones funeral i not at all right- even if its a realtion to a celebrity, there are more important things in this world than celebrity.

  • Charlie

    Wow. I really do not think it is appropriate for these pictures to have been taken in the first place and shouldn’t be circulated. This is private. We have no right to intrude.

  • Daisy

    Why are they taking pictures of him at his mothers funeral? That makes me sick! Let the man grieve! ugh stupid media!

  • loverly

    wow i feel bad 4 him

    but he’s still hot

  • Katrina

    Jonathon was obviously comforted by the presence of his good friend Colin. Smoking or not, isn’t that what matters most?

  • Christy

    this is ridiculous, this is a very personal matter, the paparazzi should leave them alone to grieve. who would want cameras all over at a funeral? geez, show some respect. deepest sympathy to them all.

  • janice

    Why did Splash news feel the need to take pictures of this? Privacy is a word that is so obsolete now. Sad times are upon us.

  • Kate

    Please take these pictures down. It is inappropriate and it is unfair to those who are grieving.

  • Regina

    Aww, that’s so sad. What’s even more disgusting is that people are photographing him at such a sad time. Grow up! People will never learn. Don’t they remember what happened to Princess Diana or what?

  • lol

    why are there paparazzi at a freaking FUNERAL? that is disgusting

  • Laura

    I think it is disgusting that people are paid to take these pictures… have a little respect

    I also think it’s disgusting that you are choosing to post them, creating a demand for this type of product

    He is a man who lost his mother, respect his privacy.

  • kelly

    Sad about the paps. Its not right. My thoughts go out to JRM’s family

  • Mel

    Is not too late JJ, remove those pictures, please, and get some credit with us, the fans.

  • Ruth

    I am also disgusted by this gross invasion of privacy. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a popular actor but surely he and his family have the right to some privacy at his mother’s funeral. JJ, you don’t have to post everything that comes across your desk.

  • Helena

    I hate seeing people unhappy, it makes me depressed. :(

  • LOVE ANGELINA

    Why would someone take pictures of a funeral?? My prayers go out to his family. I wish they had gotten some privacy on this day.

  • JanieDoll

    There would be a lot more upcoming funerals if that was me…

  • lena

    JJ, very digusted with you right now, this is very inappropriate

  • me

    The papparazzi really shouldn’t take pictures of him (or anyone) at a funeral. It breaks my heart to see this :(

  • Helena

    There would be a lot more upcoming funerals if that was me…

    Ha! Couldn’t agree with you more.

  • i luv Nicole Ritchee

    Prayers to you and your family.
    No one knows your pain til you’ve lost your mom or a parent.

  • b&a lover

    Jonathan, sorry to hear of your loss, my your mother rest in peace.

  • laura

    how is this possible? WHY would a human being take photos of someone grieving? it is so disrespectful.. :(

    My condolances to Jonathan Rhys Meyers, I lost a relative recently and I remember the horrible feeling that doesn’t go away that fast..

  • cal girl

    Deepest condolences to Jonathan and his family. I didn’t look at the pictures because they are so intrusive. Very sad that celebs can’t have one moment of privacy even for grieving. I hope he can get through this and pull himself together again, not spiral downward further.

  • melly

    ok…the comment about colin smoking at the funeral…get over yourself…it’s totally acceptable in ireland, nobody takes offense…

    and i do have to say that it is tasteless to take pictures of a funeral.
