Jonathan Rhys Meyers Heats Up The Tudors Again
Jonathan Rhys Meyers Heats Up The Tudors Again

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was a spunky and handsome addition to yesterday's Showtime TCA event to meander through the next season of The Tudors. While Buzz has the info about his relationship with Joss Stone plus other tidbits from the day's panels, here's what Jonathan had to say about playing the famous character and what sex scenes are like:

  • On whether he'll gain weight like Henry VIII: "No. I’m not going to turn into the Holbein painting. . . I played it my way. I could have put on the red hair and gained the weight but it’s already done. I’m not that guy. This is not that show. . . We wanted to make something with the exciting backdrop but it's entertainment, it’s television. . .We have to play with history a little bit. I had to play him my way."
  • On love then vs. now: "Marriage was a commercial venture rather than a love thing. You married and you had children because children brought you heirs and security for your legacy. . . Usually they were arranged for commercial, political and state value and occasionally a love match was found."
  • On being comfortable with his love scenes: "Very comfortable. There are worse things you could do with yourself on a rainy Tuesday morning in Dublin than hop in bed with [these ladies]."

I've never seen the show, but I really want to watch it. I think that's kinda stupid that he isn't going to go full Henry VIII (dye hair red & gain weight) but I guess TV/movies are hardly ever accurate anyway.

I cried so hard when Anne died on the Tudors. I thought they were such a great couple! Ah well. He's a great actor.

I've loved him every since I saw him in Velvet Goldmine. It's a really cool interesting movie.

I love this show. The idea of him becoming fat like the Holbein's painting of Henry VIII makes me laugh somehow.

I adore him. I can't get enough of JRM and The Tudors. ilanac13, it's because he isn't dating Joss Stone in real life! Joss plays Henry's 4th wife, Anne of Cleves. That's what Pop meant by "his relationship."

i LOVE him and i don't think that i'll ever get enough of him talking about just about anything. i didn't realize that he and joss were dating - where have i been? anyway, i love to hear about his take on the tudors and i can't wait for another season.
