Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in the hospital after attempting suicide on June 28th. The Tudors star has in been in and out of rehab five times for alcohol problems. This time, Jonathan refused treatment for more than 30 minutes when the paramedics first arrived. Paramedics were forced to call the police, and Jonathan was eventually take away by ambulance to a facility near his home in Maida Vale, north London.
Worried neighbours saw the 33-year-old actor – who was believed to have overdosed on unspecified pills – rushed to hospital. One onlooker told The Sun newspaper: “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.”
The Velvet Goldmine actor was discharged from hospital yesterday but would only answer “no comment” when questioned on whether he had tried to commit suicide.
A police spokesperson confirmed they had been asked to attend the incident.
An official said: “Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment. The man was taken to hospital.”
We hope that Jonathan gets better! We’re a big fan of his work!
