Jonathan Rhys Meyers Hides Money Under Mattress

Jonathan Rhys Meyers Hides Money Under Mattress

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was asked at the second season premiere of The Tudors how he liked to invest his money and what he did with his fortune.

“How do I invest my money?” Jonathan asked rhetorically.

“Well, I don’t invest it in Bear Stearns (BSC)!” the 30-year-old Tudors star joked to MainStreet. “I’m Irish. I keep it in mattress.”

What a great idea!

FYI: Bear Stearns’s stock plummeted last week after JPMorgan Chase agreed to buy it for just $2 per share.

    I volunteer to be the thief who goes looking for that money under his mattress — of course, I’d secretly be hoping that he’s on top of that mattress when I get there!

  • justa mia

    Now there is a wierd looking Brit. I don’t care for his acting at all. Did not like him as Henry VIII in the Tudors. Totally miscast IMO.


    My uncle keeps his money in a hole in the back yard. I guess he and Jonathan are to peas in a pod.

    Face it ladies he is taken, and I don’t see he ever coming up for air again, he would make a nice husband for someone, but not REENA

    I disagree that he is taken. He may be with Reena, but I look at the pictures of them together and I don’t really see him ‘with’ her if you get what I mean. Yes, she’s there and even when he’s kissing her I get the feel it’s for the photogs. I could be wrong. Been looking into him a lot and watching interviews. He’s the boy from the opposite side of the tracks who found himself a little rich girl who will stand in his shadow and give him the adulation his ego requires. BUT, HE HAS NOT YET FOUND THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE . . . and he knows it. He’s moving toward domesticity at the pushing of Reena and goes along with it to placate her and because that other ‘one’ hasn’t been found yet. When he finds that one, his world will turn upside down for a bit of time but when he comes out the other end of it, he will be the person he was born to be . . . the person he’s not yet. And, for the record, I am not that person. I’m old enough to be his mother.

  • Kepigirl

    Read a more indepth interview where he is making those comments. The interviewer is pressing him to find out where he invests his money and missy Reena pops up and is touching her gold earrings and necklace and says, “He invests in me” . . . gag, gag , gag (finger down the throat). Well I won’t be watching Tudors now. I have visions of Reena stepping in and saying his lines for him. I like John, but he is truly becoming Reena’s puppet. She’s bad for his career in the longrun.

  • Mexican Girl

    he is funny tooooooo
    another reason for love him??

  • wesagirl

    When you go to break into mattress, I’ll go too but I want Jonny, not his money. And I’m old enough to be his grandmother! But I think he the hottest thing around. Love to kiss him, but at least get those two kisses on the cheeks he gives the women on the talk shows Would love to meet him and talk to him too. He was born too late for me, but one of you-go and get him and make him happy. So next I can be reading about you and him.
