    Default ‘Suicide bid’ by Tudors’ Jonathan Rhys Meyers

    TROUBLED telly hunk Jonathan Rhys Meyers was taken to hospital by ambulance after a suspected suicide attempt.

    Hellraiser Meyers - Henry VIII in BBC series The Tudors - is believed to have downed pills at his £3million home.

    Paramedics answering a 999 call found him slumped on the floor. But they had to call police after he refused treatment at the scene for more than 30 minutes. A source said: "This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life."

    The 33-year-old - who has been battling a drink problem - was finally taken to a hospital near his home in Maida Vale, Central London, on Tuesday night.

    He was discharged in the early hours yesterday. Asked later how he was, red-eyed Meyers told The Sun: "No comment."

    Yesterday a woman neighbour said: "I saw the ambulance arriving and was worried to death.

    "Jonathan is a lovely guy. You see him all the time in the street. He says hello and is very pleasant. I hope he is fine."

    Earlier this month he checked into a five-star rehabilitation centre in South Africa - his fifth stint in rehab. Irish-born Meyers has starred in movies including Alexander and Bend It Like Beckham and is a former Hugo Boss model.

    He has spoken before about his booze hell. And he admitted: "When I do drink I'm like Bambi. I'm all over the place like a 16-year-old kid."

    Last night Scotland Yard confirmed: "Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment. The man was taken to hospital."

    This is sad. I think it took Steven Tyler 7 times in rehab, maybe there is hope.

    This guy is obviously completely miserable in his life. Let him go if he wants to go.

    That's so sad. I know he had problems before, but I think his mother dying was devastating for him. I hope he gets some help. He's such a talented actor.

    So the cops get called if you refuse treatment?
    It's a shame that Jonathan is so troubled.

    He is such a talented actor, but he definitely has had some inner demons of some type. I remember reading about that big ol' bender he went on after his mother died. Very sad - I hope he gets the help that he needs.

    is he in the closet too? I'm only wondering b/c I know that can be torture on someone's psyche to keep something like that inside meanwhile battling booze, drugs and death of a loved one and trying to keep your career afloat

    He's a horrible actor. I think the only thing he was ever good in was that rock star movie he did, can't remember the name. He was god freaking AWFUL in The Tudors.

    I've read about his girlfriend, but he could have gotten her at Girlfriends-R-Us.

    I hated him at first in The Tudors then I grew to love him, thinking of him as a different version of Henry VIII. I loved him in Match Point and Velvet Goldmine. He's so beautiful.
