Jonathan Rhys Meyers is King Of The Courts

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is King Of The Courts

Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays a little basketball with a friend in front of his home on Tuesday (April 7) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 31-year-old returned to Showtime this week in The Tudors. Talking about his acting on the show, the actor told the NY Daily News, “What I do is I isolate myself while I’m shooting it. I lived in a house on my own. It’s very Spartan, I don’t have luxuries. I go to the gym, all of this almost physical meditation. That’s what it takes, because I don’t look like Henry, so I have to do more to be Henry VIII.”

10+ pictures inside of Jonathan Rhys Meyers playing ball at his home…

Wow. He’s gorgeous. Looks so different on The Tudors — he looks about 10 years older there but plays the part great.

# 8

But don’t expect some MENTAL ACHIEVEMENTS, folks.
………………..because there simply isn’t.

# 9

Gorgeous! Thanks.

Gorgeous! Thanks.

he looks fat

That’s muscle you’re looking at. The man doesn’t have a fat cell on his body. He’s my favorite — great actor too

Who the hell dared to call him “fat”?! Woh, I know see fat everywhere (even on not-so-thick ladies like Hilary Duff) but come on. That’s muscle as #12 said. Gosh. Some people’s stupidity is beyond me. Lol. Anyway he’s hot.

*I meant I know some people

I just love him and the Tudors is my show. He is not bad to look at even when playing Henry.

He’s great on The Tudors — actually in everything. Want to see more of him … and in more movies.

I love this guy! He’s so awesome! I’ve loved him ever since “August Rush!!” Amazing voice!!

Just curious about your comment #8. Do you know this to be a fact? I’m guessing you are either jealous or just assume a very talented and handsome actor can’t also be intelligent — that doesn’t say much about you, does it?

he’s hotness but no one can deny he’s pure gayness.

What a body! Love him on The Tudors — please don’t make him a fat Henry 8

GORGEOUS man and a HUGELY TALENTED actor.
His best is yet to come.

you cant beat a good irish boy . he is pure perfection

He looks great. I loved him in August Rush, it was amazing, and his voice… just wow… (and i did love his irish accent).

Hope he keeps up the good work as an actor and in his personal life.

Good luck to him, his first job was an Irish tv commercial for Knorr Soup which he doesn’t like to remember. But I remember the moment he walked into the casting session and we all knew he had something special. He was shy and elusive on set, not mixing much with the other actors or crew, but a very nice young guy. Seems like he still works this way.

Great story Irish adgirl. So glad you hired him and gave him his start so we can all see his beautiful face and amazing talent.

It’s great to see him looking so healthy and gorgeous. Thanks Irish adgirl for sharing your story and for casting him!!!

ILoveVelvetGoldmine @ 04/10/2009 at 2:32 pm

I like that he’s moved out there where they got ball courts in their front yards and stuff. I guess I’m happy for him! I saw him in Camden once and he was alone. So its good hes not lonely. Hurry up and make Velvet Goldmine 2 else R.I.P Maxwell Demon then!

In response to #8: For someone making a snide comment about “mental achievements,” that sure is a poorly written sentence. Cheerio.

omg sooo hot!
but… is he gay? :(

Oh Wow he’s a hottie.

Jon is definately not a pretty kid anymore. Wow. He gets more handsome each year. I can definately see him playing leading male roles now. I think the best is yet to come from this guy if he finds the right projects.
