Jonathan Rhys-Meyers & Kit Harington: Pre-BAFTAs Party!

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers & Kit Harington: Pre-BAFTAs Party!

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers and Kit Harington attend the Pre-BAFTAs Party ahead of the 2013 EE British Academy Film Awards on Wednesday (February 6) at The Savoy Hotel in London, England.

The guys were joined at the EE and Esquire hosted event by Andrea Riseborough, Noomi Rapace, and Luke Evans.

It was recently announced that Jonathan will be joined on his upcoming NBC series Dracula by his former Tudors co-star Katie McGrath!

The new series introduces “Dracula as he arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier. There’s only one circumstance that can potentially thwart his plan: Dracula falls hopelessly in love with a woman who seems to be a reincarnation of his dead wife.”

    Wow. Jonathan looks rough (and completely out of it?). He used to be drop-dead gorgeous. “sigh”

  • Kate

    I know right, I was just thinking about back when he did press for Mission Impossible and Match Point, he was so fit, and tan, and healthy/happy looking, maybe this is for a role? For Dracula? Who knows….

  • Gina

    Kit’s lookin’ good!

  • S

    That is some creepy facial hair on JRM.

  • Lolita

    Wow that Johnathan guy looks TERRIBLE!

  • D

    Seeing JRM now makes me sad.


    JRM…makes my heart bleeds…am gonna assume its stress…gush somehow am rooting for the kid.

  • uh huh

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers will devour your soul.

  • Lilo

    He had a suicide attempt, give the man a break. It is a point of no return, comment on their appearance is so superficial.

  • http://wolfdreaming Kay Blood

    He is an alcoholic, folks. Can’t get off the booze. He’s been in and out of re-habs but keeps drinking. Very sad, he is quite talented.

  • uh huh

    @Kay Blood: I agree,hes a great actor. Alcoholism is a bitch of a disease.

  • Shirley

    Damn! You shouldn’t upload this at night, Jonathan scared the hell out of me.

  • justhim

    I think some need glasses and think Jonathan looks gorgeous, he didn’t have a suicide attempt but he was going through a rough period of drinking I am assuming to block out pain he was going through in his personal life – he’s only human I’m sick of reading bad comments dragged up from the past when he has gone through so much to get to this point. – no wonder the poor man stayed out of the lime light for a while when all I read is destructive comments about his looks – he can’t look like he did in MI3 and Match Point that was some years ago.

    There are lots of other pics from this event – he looks healthy, animated and totally not “out of it”.

    I’m glad he scared you cos he’s just about to go off and shoot a film for Dracula so all’s well.

  • sickandtired

    Wow.. wow! Like the previous comment no wonder he stayed away. I tell you what you all upload pictures of yourselves and we’ll scrutinize the hell out of you and see how it makes you feel. How old are you all? It says a lot when he hasn’t touched a drop since June 28th to be exact doesn’t it? If you don’t like him focus your attention on someone you do like, it’s getting real boring reading the same crap about him and the past yet again being dragged up. If you prefer Kit talk about how lovely he looks instead of degrading Jonny not quite sure what he’s done to deserve this! There is certain people I don’t like but I don’t focus my attention on them. Were you not all taught if you’ve nothing nice to say say nothing at all? Obviously not. Lay off of him! Looks aren’t everything! I’ve honestly heard some fantastic things he’s done in the past few months by people who’ve worked with him but people seem to judge by pictures these days and wrongly assume things. You all know zilch about him and what a lovely guy he is.

  • eve

    Rhys-Myers should be perfect as Dracula. He looks awful and dead.

  • justhim

    @eve: better than being predictable and boring like you with your comments. I’m sure he’s so bothered what YOU think – he’s doing ok.

  • sickandtired

    Wow that was original Eve! Newsflash he doesn’t care what others think of him, he’s said it before numerous times. There’s just no need to get so personal that’s why we are defending him because he isn’t here to do it himself

  • sickandtired


    Why because he chooses not to smile in the majority photos?

  • kiki

    JRM looks so unhappy:(((

  • annie

    JRM was in rehab u people r blind hes trying and looking good,still a great actor cannot wait for this series.just how ughly r u jerks really bad I think

  • Helen

    This what early childhood trauma does to a human being. Johnny is struggling emotionally and the world can see it. Johnny, have your people call a stress clinic…start with DBT and then neurofeedback

  • Helen

    @ Sickandtired….seriously, do you know him? I know his natural complexion is fair anf he’s naturally skinny but his eyes and facial affect tell me he’s in trouble ( he knows it too ).I hope he gains insight soon into why he has severe addiction and turbulent relationships. Why does he have rage issues,,why does he feel lonely, empty and vulnerable? Johnny look at your early childhood and go from there. He’s a male borderline! He’s got no sense of self, he’s empty, depressed, addicted to alcohol/ cocaine and he can’t stay in a relationship

  • SunnyAutumn

    Root for a woman beater, wow! He repeatedly beat his girlfriend and said she deserved it. Keep rooting.

  • Jennifer T.

    He is an amazing actor…he used to be drop dead gorgeous, he is unrecognizable in those pictures…….so sad! Lots of people go through things, but you have to get over it….he is rich and really adorable…get your act together!

  • Me

    I think pictures don’t give him justice, he looks much better in video, here’s a recent interview for russian tv, he was handsome and brillant, absolutely not “out of it”:
    Anyways, I can’t wait to see him in Dracula and City of Bones, and in his other upcoming projects.

  • Helen

    Look at his history..that says it all.I wish him the best though.

  • justhim

    @SunnyAutumn: So now it’s ok to throw those kind of accusations around as well as pull people to pieces on a very personal level – this is just untrue and your ignorance astounds me.

  • Anna

    It seems to me like the people in a lot of the photos from the party look distorted. I can’t tell if the photographer used the wrong lens, or it was a failed attempt to make _everyone_ at the party look thinner. Either way though, I’d call it bad photography.

    And, yes, Jonny does look a bit off in these photos too. I’ve noticed that the last couple of events we’ve seen photos of him in he seems sort of shell shocked almost. Except for the Russian premiere of his last movie in November. He seemed to be doing very well there.

  • Sad

    Poor JRM looks like he’s off in another planet lately.

  • humble me

    Totally agree – well said! :)

  • Getalife

    The comments here are laughable. Those who defend someone they have never met are funny. This actor is a person. He NEVER smiles in his pictures. He looks terrible for someone in his mid thirties. To Helen, you have a fan site for him, which I hope is just a hobby and not your job. Actors are people, so stop worshiping them. He has been in the news (past) and has had bad pubilicity which he brought on himself. For whatever reason, he is not happy. Looks sick and tired and honestly out of it. So you peeps on here who are crying for him, cry for yourself for being so immature and stupid that you honestly think this person,or any actor for that matter, cares what you think..good or bad. Good looking, not anymore. Talented actor, not really.

  • peaceful ol soul

    Even his worse photo is better than my best. If I had movie star money and wasnt afraid of jail or dying right now. Id be on Coke. He looks like an actor playing Dracula. He is fine. The only thing that I can say bad it’s we will never meet. BabyI’ve got your back!

  • MEL

    Love you in every way there is to love… people are jealous of your aura…they can’t become you so they talk crap about you. Ignore them.
