    Jonathan Rhys Meyers is Irish and John Rhys-Davies is Welsh. Besides, Rhys Meyers (no hyphen) was born Jonathan Michael Francis O'Keeffe so I'm going with no.

    Birth Date: July 27, 1977. Born in County Dublin, Ireland, Rhys-Meyers began using his mother's name, Meyers, when he began acting. Because Rhys-Meyers was born with heart problems, he was baptised very quickly because it was feared that he might die. He spent a few months in the hospital. One year after his birth, his family moved to County Cork, Ireland, where he still resides. When Jonny, as he was called by his family and friends, was 3 years old, his father left the family. Rhys-Meyers has three younger brothers named Jamie, Alan and Paul. His mother raised him and his brothers on her own in rural Cork with little money. Rhys-Meyers has recalled that a somewhat well-to-do Anglo-Irish family in Buttevant took him under their wing. He also had a horse named Belle. At the age of sixteen, Rhys-Meyers was permanently expelled from school, but he was discovered by casting agents shortly after at a Cork pool hall, the Victoria Sporting Club, and began a career in acting. Rhys-Meyers has been romantically linked to several actresses in the past, including Toni Collette, his co-star in Velvet Goldmine, Asia Argento, Rachael Leigh Cook and Estella Warren. Both he and Scarlett Johansson deny the persistent rumors of them having a fling. Having recently ended a nearly 2 year relationship with Reena Hammer, 20 (daughter of George Hammer owner of Harrods spa and Ruby Hammer co-creator of Ruby & Millie make up). Jonathan is featured in the June issues of Instyle (as a Man of Style) and Out (called "Hottest Straight Guy We Wish Was Gay") magazines. And the Versace and Hugo Boss rumors appear to be true. He has signed deals to appear in ad campaigns for both companies. From the Irish Examiner: He's fantastic. I've adored him since Bend It Like Beckham. Hope you enjoy all this info. on him. =)
