HOLLYWOOD SPY'S BEST IRISH STAR IS JONATHAN RHYS MEYERS FOLLOWED BY COLIN FARRELL! NEW POLL: BEST COMEDY ACTRESS!

Our BEST IRISH STAR poll is over, and we had quite a lot of votes from the fans of two Irish hunks Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who won the battle with amazing 44% of your votes and Colin Farrell who took second place with 28% of votes. 
Stunningly charismatic Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been around for quite some time, but his breakthrough was the mesmerizing role of king Henry in the worldwide famous series THE TUDORS. One of the best historical series ever has given him the opportunity to truly shine. Playing the naughty king wasn't difficult for him, since he is known to have a naughty nature in real life as well (he's  been admitted to a rehab facility in London last year). Hope the love of his fans will help him go through these problems. I personally adored his breathtaking roles as king Philip of France in THE LION IN WINTER next to Glenn Close and Patrick Stewart , and his haunting role in THE EMPEROR'S WIFE, his naughty role in MATCH POINT, his deeply touching role in Chinese epic THE CHILDREN OF HUANG SHI,  his role in TITUS.Come to think of it, these are all some of my favourite movies, so I strongly recommend them to you, and not just because Jonathan plays roles in them. We've also seen him in ALEXANDER, VANITY FAIR, THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS .... We shall watch him next to Glenn Close again in ALBERT NOBBS. The man really knows how to choose great movies and TV projects. Believe it or not, he never won an Emmy nor a Golden Globe for his role in THE TUDORS. A horrible injustice. He never won an Oscar either, believe it or not!
BEST COMEDY ACTRESS
Now let us move to our next poll. If you have some ideas for future polls, please be so kind to tell me, since I sometimes do run out of ideas ;) Next two weeks we shall be voting for BEST COMEDY ACTRESS. You can choose among the following witty divas: Sandra Bullock(THE PROPOSAL), Cameron Diaz (BAD TEACHER), Amy Adams (LEAP YEAR, THE MUPPETS), Jennifer Aniston(HORRIBLE BOSSES), Anne Hathaway (BRIDE WARS), Resee Witherspoon (LEGALLY BLONDE), Melissa McCarthy (BRIDESMAIDS, GILMORE GIRLS), Milla Kunis (FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS) and Kate Hudson (BRIDE WARS). Vote as much as you like!

    I think I misspelled Reese's name on a couple of places here :)

    @Lurk
    you did? I hope I didn't miss any of the stars from your country, Lurk

  4. Since I saw the truly awful Match Point I've avoided Rhys Meyers - just not a fan at all.

  5. oh, my, Dan, I will have to disagree with you on this one. Not only that I found it a great film, but MATCHPOINT was also the only film of usually horrid Woody Allen I ever liked.
    And I've always thought Meyers was a synonym for good and refined films. Always profound and deeply sensual in choosing roles.

  6. And don't forget that Jonathan Rhys Meyers played Elvis too in a made-for-TV biopic!

  7. He did, I've just mentioned it in a comment under the previous post :)

  8. I honestly can't remember who I voted for, but I know it wasn't him.

  9. i loved him in AUGUST RUSH (one of my all-time fave movies) and BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM.
    he has such a strong ability to emote. truly talented!
    but i voted for ronan.

    anyway, this new one has several women in a dead heat, imo, but i'll have to go with mccarthy this time. i've seen too much of some of these other ladies.

  10. Yay for Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Long live the king.

    Hehe, I noticed you didn't mention his movie with Keira Knightley, but Bend It Like Beckham is one of my favorites. :))

  11. Farrell did not win! Yippeee. Okay I'm through. Now if Aniston doesn't win I'll be happy too!..haha

  12. I love Jonathan Rhys Meyers. His next film, Belle du Seigneur, looks incredibly romantic and sexy. I can't wait for that one!!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ugh, not a fan of him. But as always, great pics.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oh, Jonathan. Hot and hot. A good combo. :)

  15. @Josh
    well, you didn't but his powerful fanclub did :)

    @Vics
    I've never seen AUGUST RUSH, but I know you mentioned it before and that you love it :)
    Melissa is a true cutie in Hollywood :)

    @Luanne
    long live the king :)
    I did watch BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM, but didn't really get it :) Although, it did mark one period of time as one of the first British flicks to be successful outside UK too in that decade.

    well, judging from her lack of success in our previous polls, I suspect Jennifer won't win :) Although I don't have anything against her.

    @Anon
    oooh, I haven't heard of BELLE I must check it out and do a little research on it :)

  17. @Erin
    feast your eyes :)

    @Liz
    glad you think so :)

    @Pesos
    indeed he is :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. My first choice would have been Colin Farrell, however, Jonathan Rhys Meyers isn't a bad second. He has incredibly haunting eyes :)

  19. There's not a lot I can say except...YUM

  20. I'm happy. It really is the best, versatile actor. Jonathan, I wish you further victories! With love from Russia

  21. @Wendy
    he surely does, and haunting talent as well!

    @Lyndy
    yum indeed

    @Anon
    greetings to mother Russia :)

  22. Belle du Seigneur will be great. He plays a diplomat and Natalie Nova, who is a supermodel, plays the married woman he has an affair with. I have seen photos and they are on horseback in Italy and France and it looks so beautiful and sexy

  23. JRM is divine and so are his movies. I can't wait to see more of him. And you know my girl Melissa got my vote. She is a round goddess much like myself and I think she's hilarious. I love Sandra and the rest, too. Especially Amy, but I gotta go with Melissa. Great poll! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congrats to JRM. I like Jonathan in August Rush and that's about it....but I know lots girl like him (except me, of course ;) )

    I have a cute picture of him with my man.They look like close friends

  25. @Anon
    sounds interesting, can't wait to see the trailer when it comes out

    @Melsy
    he is. And I see Amy, Melissa and Sandra are currently tied in score :)

    @Novia
    I'm sure they are good friends, since they're both from the same country.

  26. I like him in August Rush, too. I think he's a talented guy, I wish he'd get his life together and sober up. I'm generally not a big fan of his though.

    ReplyDelete
  27. oh, it seems I'm the only one who hasn't seen AUGUST RUSH!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Dez, I think you'd enjoy August Rush. It's a heartwarming film w/ great music.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I second Ruth's comment. Even if you don't like the movie,i bet you'll like the music

    ReplyDelete
  30. if it's jazz or old music I probably won't like it, but if it isn't than I might indeed :)
