Jonathan Rhys-Meyers Eats Dog in China

Real nice. At least I'm not a fan of The Tudors (too over the top for me) or else I would've had to give it up.

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers has come under fire from animal rights activists after his latest co-star, Radha Mitchell, let it slip that he ate dog while filming in China.

he actress insists dining out in rural China, where she and Rhys-Meyers, shot new film 'The Children of Huang Shi' was a challenge - and her co-star decided to go native.

She says: "The challenge was ordering lunch and getting chicken claws, just these weird things that you don't expect and you're not used to so you're constantly adjusting.

"Jonathan did the dog's meat. We were in some restaurant and there was dog meat on the menu and there was someone next to us just sitting there with their Chihuahua in a handbag.

"I was thinking: 'That could've been dessert.'"
