And now, 10 years later, hes the leading man of the moment. And then you get one that changes that and they define you as that for a period of time. And anyone who did that much hunting, fucking, and cutting peoples heads off really didnt have too much time to sit around on his La-Z-Boy watching Friends.
What wasnt cool 10 years ago Clive Owen was back in England making films and no one gave a shit. Theres a lot of men in the closet for many, many years. But still its not as free as it would be here in New York. Ive got lots of really, really ultra-straight friends in Ireland who would still have major problems not the same as they would have 10 or 20 years ago, but they still hold some element of prejudice. But it wasnt until Match Point came out that people said, He can play a straight leading man. Sometimes you will get a role that will define you for a certain period of time as what you are. Henry didnt like having paintings of him in real life. He was quite a lean guy who was quite into hunting.
In Outs June Hot Issue, we named Irish dreamboat Jonathan Rhys-Meyers the Hottest Straight Guy We Wish Was Gay.
The Mission: Impossible III costar told us about his infamous Velvet Goldmine sex scene with Ewan Mc Gregor and why he thinks playing Elvis (for which he won a Golden Globe) was his gayest role yet.
In 2007 he recorded Gerard Manley Hopkins poems for "The Great Poets" edition for Naxos Audiobooks. I played not gay but bisexual, and I ended up in bed with Jeremy Northam. It was me, Jeremy, and Anna Friel in bed together for a threesome. The more uptight he got, the more outlandish and flamboyant I got. Was Goldmine the only time you have ever played a queer character? I did The Tribe with [writer/director] Stephen Poliakoff for British TV. Scarlett Johansson said working with you was like having a girlfriend on the set. Northam was born in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, the youngest of four siblings.His mother, Rachel (née Howard), was a potter and professor of economics, and his father, John Northam, was a professor of literature and theatre, as well as being an Ibsen specialist and lecturer (first at Clare College, Cambridge and later at Bristol). He married Canadian film/television make-up artist Liz Moro in April 2005, though they later divorced.
