The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers made a special appearance at the Britney Spears concert in Los Angeles last night. His royal highness took the time to meet with fans and take photographs. Lucky betches!
Recently Meyers shared how much he hopes The Tudors will end before before his character, King Henry VIII, transforms from sexy beast to a heavier/older ruler.
“I wouldn’t be very good at putting on a lot of weight. When I played Elvis (a young Presley, in the 2005 TV movie “Elvis”), I really had to struggle so I would have Elvis’ puppy fat,” Meyers said. “I had to keep eating.”
This season he has been dealing with an injury to his leg, but it has not lowered his libido one bit!
“It doesn’t seem to have affected his sexual prowess,” Meyers observed. “Of course, Henry wasn’t as sexed up as the show is. But we’re not selling it to a 16th-century audience.”
So how do all the on-screen sex scenes affect Jonathan’s love life?
“Doing the erotic stuff, it is what it is,” Meyers said. “But it’s not really where you get the best of your acting. I have a girlfriend, these girls have boyfriends. So where’s the respectful line in doing a sex scene if you really want to do a good one?”
He recalled being asked by the director in the first season to touch an actress’ breast, and being cautioned by her that she had a boyfriend.
“Not anymore,” a cheeky Meyers replied.
You can catch Episode 3 of The Tudors this Sunday on Showtime.
