Jonathan Rhys Meyers recently did an interview and photo shoot for Details Magazine Holiday Issue. The 30 year old movie star, who has been in the business since he was young, definitely had some interesting things to say on Hollywood and life in general.
On Brad Pitt and his own self confidence:
“Let’s not kid ourselves – “this business is about being good-looking. Look, Brad Pitt is an incredible actor, but do you think he’d be a famous movie star if he didn’t look like that? Come on! Some mornings, some days, you just don’t have that physical confidence. That’s a horrible feeling. A lot of my success is because of what I look like. I know that.””
On Leonardo DiCaprio:
“[Leonardo DiCaprio] was successful very young, was a party boy, took two years off, and then became this major Hollywood player. Right now I can get a $5 million film green-lit, not a $100 million film.”
On being a narcissist:
“Part of being a narcissist is being terribly insecure. If I wasn’t so insecure about myself, I wouldn’t work as hard as I do. I am constantly seeking approval.”
On Staying out of the limelight:
“You know why I stay out of the limelight? I always think there will be that time that people will find out that I’m crap at what I do. I think they will figure out I’m crap. Doesn’t everybody have that feeling?”
And ladies, how are we feeling about that mustache he’s rocking on the cover? To see more pictures and read the rest of the interview check out Details’ website or pick up the magazine that comes out tomorrow.
