Well some how i understand why she become nagging wife... Because after all her husband is King Of England... and she always was worried is he true to her and is he sorry for the word "sleeping" with her ladies in waiting..... Probably that's why she become so "perky"

Yes...Anne was a good mistress/girlfriend, but once married she fell into the trap of being a nagging wife.

Absolutely!  I think that was Anne's downfall.  When she was a mistress she had the added allure of being "forbidden fruit".  However, once she was his wife and Queen she had far more day to day intimacy with Henry and her forceful personality became ever more apprarent.  She was never going to be the sort of wife to him or any man who would turn a blind eye to mistresses or disrespectful treatment.  She was far too intelligent and strong willed.  Ultimately this, as well as her failure to produce the longed for son, drove Henry into the arms of Jane Seymour and Anne to the scaffold.

You could be right... but don't you think she choice her destiny?I mean that she "felt into the trap" by her own will (and her father's ofcourse)

I think she made her own bed and slept on it. The fact that her father and sister (Mary Boleyn) escaped in tact means that Anne was running her show. Only George was too close to her and signed his fate by a vengeful wife.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was nominated for a Golden Globe today for his portrayal of Henry VIII in season two of "The Tudors".

I don't think Helena ever did Anne Boleyn, but did "Lady Jane" instead.

Actually Helena BC did appear as Anne Boleyn in a UK production called "Henry VIII" about five years ago.  British actor Ray Winston played Henry and was terrible, but Helena was very good as Anne.  Another British actress Emily Blunt was also very good as Catherine Howard.  They have clips on youtube if you want to have a look.

I heard about that production but never seen it. But I will take your word for it if you say she was good.

She was good, but as I said, the production itself was fairly weak.  The one thing I remember, apart from HBC as Anne Boleyn and Emily Blunt as CH, was the execution of Thomas Cromwell which was really grisly!  Do have a look on youtube (for HBC and EB, not Thomas Cromwell!) as I think  you'll be impressed.

Helena Bonham Carter was good (but then, she always is!).

My favorite is still Genvieve Bujold from "Anne of the Thousand Days".  She was perfect.

And, yes, I will be happy to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers at the Golden Globes, in a tux....Yum!
