“The Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized earlier this week in London, reportedly after attempting suicide.
Paramedics responded to an emergency call Tuesday night (June 28) and found Meyers, 33, “slumped on the floor,” London paper The Sun reports. After he refused treatment, police were called and he was taken to a hospital. The Sun says he was believed to have taken a number of pills.
“This is very sad,” an unnamed source tells the newspaper. “It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life.”
Meyers offered no comment after being released from the hospital early Wednesday.
Earlier in June Meyers checked into a rehab facility in South Africa, his fifth time seeking treatment for alcohol addiction.
