Jonathan Rhys Meyers claims he could easily fall in love with someone he didn't know very much about
Jonathan Rhys Meyers thinks love is blind.
The actor - who portrays character James Reece, an aide to a US Ambassador in France and secret CIA agent, in upcoming action film 'From Paris with Love' - thinks it is easy to fall for someone without knowing much about them, just like his alter-ego does in the film.
He explained: "Well, you know, love is blind. Really, how much do you know about your partner?
"He knows that she makes dresses, he knows that she's into fabric, but he's a naive guy anyway. It's not like he's being specifically naive because she's so fantastically beautiful, yet it's jarring and that's why she's there. He'll go for her blindly because the beauty, the charm, the elegance, he's living in Paris. This is the dream.
"Would I fall for it in real life? Absolutely! 100 per cent! Hook, line and sinker."
The 32-year-old hunk is currently single, and most recently had a four year on/off relationship with Reena Hammer, the daughter of Ruby + Millie cosmetics founder Ruby Hammer.
