I've only seen 3 of his fillums:
Cassandra's Dream; Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona; Blue Jasmine.

I have no opinion on his personal life, and don't really care.

You don't care about child abuse?

Oh, you almost caught me out with that clever twist of words!

No, I didn't say I don't care about child abuse.

I don't care for rumours.
I don't care enough for 'celebrity' to analyse different stories and different opinions for me to have my own views.

From 68 to 199x, as someone said above, the bloke didn't make a bad film. Then he got fairly awful and only came back to form with Blue Jasmine. Hard to pick a fave but I have a soft spot for Crimes and Misdemeanours.
Who's the fella and what was the cloud ?

"Midnight In Paris" is excellent. "Mighty Aphrodite" is great as well.

I presume you've watched the classics?

"Sleeper"
"Take The Money and Run"
"Love & Death"
"Annie Hall"
"Bananas"
"Manhattan"

That'd be Johnny O'Keeffe (or Jonathan Rhys Meyers to his mammy). Dunno what the cloud was though.

Dublin-born but raised in Cork with his three younger brothers - mostly by his mother (his parents separated when he was three) - he admits that he was something of a rebel. He was expelled from school at 16 for truancy, and took to spending his days in a pool hall.

There he struck up an unusual friendship with Christopher Croft, a farmer. The openly gay father-of-three offered Rhys Meyers a job on his farm and put a roof over his head. The pool hall is also the place Rhys Meyers was discovered by a casting agent.

To this day, he credits Croft - whom he has described as a 'nice man' - with giving him some stability in his life. But he's unwilling to discuss the exact nature of his relationship with Croft, or his mentor's dark side.

Last year, Croft was arrested in Morocco - where, coincidentally, the actor keeps a home - for drugging and sexually abusing a 15-year-old homeless boy.
