    I am somewhat bemused by the fact that Rhys-Meyers is handsome, slight and rather short, whereas Henry VIII was 6′ 3″ tall in a court full of men who averaged 5″6″. Does the actor ever get fat, as Henry did in his later years? Or at least, do the make-up people try to age him some? From the snippets I’ve seen, it doesn’t look as if they do. Very distracting.

    Plus, he’s super hot! And Henry VIII was really handsome for most of his life. He only really got fat around the time of Katherine Howard.
