Bend It Like Beckham
star Jonathan Rhys Meyers says he is a hopeless romantic and could easily fall in love with someone he didn't know very much about.
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,
"Well, you know, love is blind. Really, how much do you know about your partner?," Meyers said.
"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," Meyers said about his character.
"Would I fall for it in real life? Absolutely! 100 per cent! Hook, line and sinker," he said.
The 32-year-old hunk is currently single, and most recently had a four year on and off relationship with Reena Hammer, the daughter of cosmetics baron Ruby Hammer.
