When I saw this Steven Klein Jonathan Rhys-Meyers image from the forthcoming issue of Details, I immediately had one of those I've seen that before moments. Of course, it's that 1980 leather jacket-clad Robert Mapplethorpe self-portrait.

DetailsRhys-Meyers tells Details: "Let’s not kid ourselves—this business is about being good-looking. Look, Brad Pitt is an incredible actor, but do you think he’d be a famous movie star if he didn’t look like that? Come on! Some mornings, some days, you just don’t have that physical confidence. That’s a horrible feeling. A lot of my success is because of what I look like. I know that."

Two more shots after the jump.
