Jonathan Rhys Meyers for Versace

He still thinks he's ugly, or at least that's what he tells the girls.” The lead-in comment, published in an article on Jonathan Rhys Meyers’ fan website, suggests that the 29-year-old Irish heartthrob is a modest character whose personal view on life hasn’t changed much since starring in Mission: Impossible 3. As the article develops, the journalist reveals another, less discreet side indicating that the county Cork boy, who was brought up in a tiny council flat, turned down a Prada advert some years ago. “It wasn't enough money!” Rhys Meyers admits, and continues that money is a “hugely important” issue for him these days.

As Vogue presents Rhys Meyers as the new face of Versace today, one can only assume that he must have given the whole actor-turns-model appearance a second thought. Photographed by Mario Testino in a New York studio in April, the portfolio of images will run worldwide in select fashion and lifestyle magazines from August onwards.

Hmm...just as everyone is proclaiming a return to models in advertisements and on magazine covers. I guess the same cannot be said for menswear ads!

He does dark and broody quite well. It's a suprising choice but one that just might work.

Although I find him too feminine, too pretty, he seems have this certain something that appeals to fashion designers...

I love him in Match Point. He should definitely do more of that there, I think he's a great actor.

I think he is perfect because the brand don't have identity for men and he is so darker....

He is beautiful and you can sense an integrity and a distance that makes him interesting. He will fit perfectly.

I loved him in Bend it Like Beckham and he's still super cute. I can't believe he turned down a Prada ad though! It would just give him more exposure, and who wouldn't like that? :)
love your blog
