“The Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London Tuesday night after reportedly attempting to commit suicide by overdosing on pills in his mansion.
According to U.K. paper The Sun, paramedics found 33-year-old Meyers “slumped on the floor” … but he refused treatment for 30 minutes before cops arrived and convinced the actor to go to the hospital.
Officials confirm that officers were dispatched to Meyers’ home — but would NOT say if Meyers was trying to take his own life.
Meyers — who has been in and out of rehab FIVE times — was released from the hospital early Wednesday morning.
Meyers, who plays Henry VIII has battled a drinking problem for years. He has spoken before about his drinking problem. “When I do drink I’m like Bambi,” he said. “I’m all over the place like a 16-year-old kid.”
He was discharged early yesterday morning. When asked how he was, he replied “No comment.”
I like him, I hope he gets the help he needs!
