Jonathan Rhys Meyers Once Said…

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was born Jonathan Michael Francis O’Keeffe on July 27, 1977. Jonathan is an Irish actor who has been in a multitude of movies as well as series. I enjoyed seeing him in Vikings as Bishop Heahmund and another character was Louis Connelly in August Rush.

I think it is important to stay close to your roots and be true to yourself, be honest. – Jonathan Rhys Meyers

I believe there is something to say about keeping close to your roots but that doesn’t mean you need to stay where you were born, that’s not how we do it. I think one needs to look at their history or genealogy to see where you came from and how you got to where you are. Sometimes as you grow and start experimenting with possibilities it’s interesting to see if there is any roots to it. For me as I was growing up I always knew my Dad and aunt Jeanne were artists and so I knew where the art bug came to be. As for writing I discovered in my research that my great grandmother used to love writing and was actually published. I don’t know if somehow that gets passed on but I would like to say that it is possible.

Nobody’s perfect. And if you think they are, you’re sadly mistaken. – Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan says no one is perfect and that’s something that I’ve consistently said is that no one is perfect. We all tend to go through periods in our life that we try to do things as perfectly as we can and when we fall short of it in our eyes we have difficulties with it. Once you realize that you’re not perfect and others, even those you look up to or idolize that they’re not perfect the world can seem smaller and less intimidating. We strive for greatness and there’s nothing wrong with that and we can even accomplish it as well. Mistakes are just lessons to us to help us learn how not to do something or how to do things better. Imperfections make us unique.

I’m a one-woman guy. I think that if you find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with, you should marry them instantly, and try to stay married. – Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan is a one-woman guy and I definitely consider myself to be a one-man woman and I like the idea of when you find your someone that you should spend the rest of your life with that someone. I don’t know if one has to get married instantly but I do like the idea of a long marriage. If there’s something I’ve learned from being married twice is that one should think about marriage and what it means to you and to your partner. No one should rush into marriage or just marry someone out of convenience and I don’t particularly care for the arranged marriages that some cultures have. I believe that one should be able to choose who they want to be with. I believe in love and when you are with the one you love do what it takes to make each other happy.
