The Sun are reporting that troubled actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London earlier this week after reportedly trying to commit suicide that involved him popping pills in his home.
33-year-old Meyers, who has been battling alcohol addiction for the past few years and has been in and out of rehab five times, was found slumped over on the floor in his home on Tuesday night by paramedics who responded to an emergency call.
According to sources when paramedics tried to help him he refused any treatment for 30 minutes before the police arrived on the scene and managed to convince him that he should go to hospital. The source adds “this is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life.”
A spokesperson for the police spoke to People saying “we can confirm we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address in NW8 to report to a man refusing treatment. Police attended, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital. That was the end of our involvement.”
The actor, probably best known for his role in The Tudors, was discharged on Wednesday morning and reporters asked him hw he’s doing to which he simply replied “no comment.” It was only recently reported that he can’t even keep his leg steady if he sits down because he has the shakes from drinking so much alcohol.
To be honest this doesn’t come as a surprise to me, when his mother passed away a few years ago he hit the drink harder than ever before and I always thought it was only a matter of time before something like this happens. I hope he gets the help he needs.
