Think you have a prayer there, Jonnie?

BAD boy Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers appears to be praying for divine intervention as he struggles to get noticed by gorgeous model Natalia Vodianova at a showbiz party.

The Tudors star, who has had his share of problems with drink in the past, seemed confused at the Marie Claire magazine bash in Russia. At first, Natalia (30) looked embarrassed by the attentions of the 35-year-old reformed hellraiser, said onlookers.

But Jonathan's prayers were answered as the pair cuddled up for photos on the catwalk. All's well that ends well.
