Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been the King of England and the King of rock ‘n roll in his various acting gigs. Initially gaining fame through the 1998 film Velvet Goldmine, Meyers has gone on to do great things in Hollywood.
At 16 as a teen Meyers was spotted by casting agents in a local pool hall and the rest, as they say, is history. Decades, golden globes nominations and several Hugo Boss campaigns later, Rhys Meyers has become a Hollywood heart-throb. Here’s the list of top Jonathan Rhys Meyers films that show his talent.
10. From Paris With Love (2010)
From Paris with Love is a 2010 English- language French action film starring John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers and directed by the French Director Pierre Morel. It tells the story of an unlikely pair of a young employee from the office of the US Ambassador in Paris and an American spy. I don’t really get why many people think this is a bad film. I think it’s a fantastic film that is all sides thrilling with an engaging story. The performances from its leads is also superb with Travolta playing a tough, no bullshit spy and a vulnerable, fragile performance from Rhys Meyers.
