Rhys Meyers’ great­est as­set is his wife

STAUNCH SUP­PORTER OF THE WEEK

JONATHAN Rhys Meyers was ‘de­nied hospi­tal help twice in Ire­land’, ac­cord­ing to his wife Mara, be­cause of a ‘two-month wait’. She has been staunch in his de­fence since a by­stander posted pic­tures of him look­ing drunk in Dublin Air­port and Mara re­vealed that she’d just suf­fered a mis­car­riage, which he had taken badly. De­scrib­ing him as ‘the strong­est per­son I know’, she praised him for turn­ing ‘the ug­li­ness in his life into art’ and said she couldn’t watch him be­ing at­tacked for re­laps­ing ‘at such a ten­der time’. He is un­lucky that his fame makes him a tar­get, given his prob­lems, but it sounds like he is ex­cep­tion­ally for­tu­nate in the woman he mar­ried.

WED­DING OF THE WEEK

IT’S called ‘sologamy’, it started in Ja­pan but now it’s catch­ing on in Europe. This week an Ital­ian woman mar­ried her­self, com­plete with dress, brides­maids and 70 guests. ‘Each of us must first of all love our­selves,’ said Laura Mesi as she cut the cake topped with the fig­ure of a lone bride. Laura popped the ques­tion to her­self when she found her­self sin­gle at 40, but she still hopes to find a man ‘with whom I can plan a fu­ture’ – af­ter she’s di­vorced her­self, ob­vi­ously. Let’s hope she has a good lawyer.
