He appears to be beyond the stage where this exposure would drive him to hit the rock bottom that his agent and family must be hoping for, if he survives. Hopefully, all car keys are out of reach. My boyfriend managed to get in his car and reverse into a person while in this state, injuring them extensively and putting himself in prison for many years. I really am so saddened by seeing these photos today.

    i should say, my boyfriend at the time. I've since married someone else, but he did come out of prison a better person and has maintained his sobriety for a few years now. So, there is hope if the right steps are taken, but who is going to throw JRM in prison?

    Airline grounds Rhys Meyers over drunken racist rant

    Tuesday, May 18, 2010

    TUDORS star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was grounded at JFK airport in the US following a drink-fuelled racist outburst.

    The Cork-born TV and film star was refused a seat on a United Airlines flight and has been banned by the airline after a bout of heavy drinking.
    Some reports suggested the 32-year-old actor, who has a history of drink-flying incidents, was escorted from the plane when he called an official, who had refused him access to the boarding area, the racist ‘n’ word.

    The trouble started apparently with some early morning drinking. Rhys Meyers allegedly got drunk on vodka while waiting in the first- class lounge at JFK at about 7am.

    RadarOnline reported that airline officials noticed Rhys Meyers getting drunk and disorderly and prevented him from boarding the flight, which allegedly led to him hurling racist insults and using the ‘n’ word while shouting at the officials.

    It was unclear if the actor was directing the word at an individual or just using it without a specific target.

    According to RadarOnline, United Airlines officials confirmed the incident, but did not provide details.
    The Cork actor has had some issues with drinking in airports before and was arrested in 2007 at a Dublin airport for being drunk and disturbing the peace.

    More recently, in 2009, he was detained in Paris by French police following an incident in which he allegedly assaulted an airport lounge employee while drunk.

    On that occasion at Charles De Gaulle airport, he was placed in custody for several hours for having a skirmish with bar employees and allegedly punching one of them.

    The incident began when a bartender at the cafe area Le Quotidien in the departure area of the airport at terminal 2F refused to serve the actor, who appeared drunk.

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers issues a public apology to his fans after shocking drunken appearance... and insists relapse was just a 'blip' in his recovery

    By MARC JACKSON FOR MAILONLINE
    PUBLISHED: 14:15, 26 May 2015 | UPDATED: 15:41, 26 May 2015



    Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has broken his silence after shocking images emerged of him drinking vodka straight from the bottle on a London street earlier this month.
    The Tudors star, who has battled alcohol issues for over a decade, apologised to his fans in a statement released via his fiancee Mara Lane's Instagram account on Tuesday.
    Alongside a picture of a smiling Mara, the caption reads: 'Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time. I apologizes [sic] for having a minor relapse and hope that people don't think too badly of me.'

    Speaking out: Jonathan Rhys Meyers has broken his silence following his shocking drunken appearance on the streets of London earlier this month

    He goes on to claim that his shambolic appearance didn't lead to him missing out on the Cannes Film Festival, where his new movie Damascus Cover was previewed - and insists that he is focusing on his sobriety once again.

    The 37-year-old adds: 'I stopped drinking immediately and it is no reflection on Damascus Cover as I was not meant to attend Cannes this year and I apologize to fans and colleagues.'

    Explaining his 'disheveled' appearance, he says that he was heading home after a night out with friends.
    'I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friends and had not changed,' he continues.

    Disheveled: The 37-year-old hit headlines due to his scruffy and bleary-eyed appearance. He was photographed drinking vodka neat and explains that he is 'embarrassed', referring to the relapse as a 'mistake'

    'I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery otherwise I'm living a healthy life.'
    His very public 'blip' hit headlines in early May after the actor was spotted staggering through the streets of the capital after buying two bottles of vodka.

    He looked scruffy and bleary-eyed as he stopped to take a shot of the spirit he had poured into the bottle cap, spilling some down his top as he walked.
    The Irish star's disorientated appearance was a far cry from his usual image as a heartthrob, famed for his roles in Match Point and Mission: Impossible III.

    Bond: The star has reportedly been mostly stable since he began dating the actress/producer in early 2014. He reportedly proposed in December

    The actor has had a well-publicised battle with alcohol since first shooting to fame in 2002 as the love interest of Parminder Nagra's character in the hit British movie Bend it Like Beckham.
    Jonathan is believed to have had six stints in rehab over the past few years, including programmes at the Promises facility in Malibu, California in 2005 and 2007.
    On 27 February 2009, the actor checked into rehab a third time, but left less than a month later on 15 March 2009.
    In November 2011, the star was ordered by a French court to pay a restitution of €1,000 and was given a judgment of a suspended sentence for public intoxication 24 months earlier.

    Acclaim: His shocking appearance was a far cry from his image as a handsome lead, a reputation he has gained through roles in projects such as hit series The Tudors


    Jonathan Rhys Meyers starred as King Henry VIII in The Tudors







    Shortly after his mother died in November 2007, Jonathan gave an interview to the Mail on Sunday's Live magazine to promote his hit show The Tudors, in which he insisted his drinking had been 'blown out of all proportion'.
    'I haven’t even thought about drinking since my mother passed away. Drinking is not the way forward for me at all,' he said. 'I never even drank till I was 25 anyway. I was in Thailand on my own, filming. I was a little bit lonely and I started drinking.'
    It was thought that his fiancee Mara - who is an actress and producer - had helped the troubled star stay clean since they began dating last year.

    Jonathan reportedly proposed in December after less than a year of dating.
    A source told E! News at the time: 'They are so in love. He is in a great place and Mara and Jonathan really complement one another. He is healthy and happy and starts shooting Damascus Cover [soon].'

    That looks more like the tail end of a week-long bender than a "blip."

    That isn't a blip. It takes a great deal of dedication to get that low.

    This is like Amy Winehouse territory. On a basic human level it makes me sad for anyone who's this low. Addiction is a bitch, kids.

    A "blip" does not give you a gut like that. Come on, this man had a six pack! Racist rant or not, I can't help feeling for him though - addiction is a bitch.
