Jonathan Rhys Meyers Suspected Suicide Attempt!

| Filed under: Jonathan Rhys MeyersSad Sad

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been taken away by an ambulance in an apparent suicide attempt. He's believed to have taken an overdose of pills.

Paramedics had to call the police when they found him slumped over on the floor and refusing treatment for half an hour:

"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life."

"Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment. The man was taken to hospital."

Jonathan has been battling alcohol for a long time, having been to rehab five times. So he's had his share of troubles.

This is so sad, and so unfortunate. We hope he has the strength and courage to turn things around, and that he has those he can look to to help him through this troubled time. Suicide is never the answer, and it has an effect on everyone around you.

Feel better, Jonathan. We're pulling for you!

    This guy is SUCH a good actor. The Tudors was amazing! It would be such a waste of talent if he had actually gone through with it. Johnathon you are in my prayers and I am pulling for you. STAY STRONG

    It just goes to show you no matter how perfect you may think somebody's life is, we all have our struggles. I will say a prayer for him. STAY STRONG

    WHY? WHY? WHY?

    Re: miz_hilton – I agree. He's absolutely amazing… and not just because he's hot.

  5. 5

    Wait, you've done nothing but slam this guy for his problems in the past, but now you're pulling for him? Sheesh.

  6. 6

    Too bad. He's a good actor. Sad to read he's a bigot (racist outburst at airport) and a raging alcoholic. Pity about the rehab.
    What is it with these British wastrels?

  7. 7

    you have his suicide attempt highlighted at the top of the main page………
    and those moronic idiots on here will still think you've "changed"…..

  8. 8

    Who wouldn't go into seclusion, overdose & hope for death after working with Julianna Moore?

    Gah. I can never fully understand someone who has so much talent, and good looks but such turmoil going on inside them. Jonathan Rhys Meyers is such a great actor in all his movies and the Tudors especially. It would be a really sad thing to see him go. I'm so happy they found him in time to be treated.

    so young
    so talented
    so troubled
    so tragic………….

    And here comes the phony sincerity from two-faced Hilton. You're still the fuck you always were.

  12. 12

    This isn't the first time he's tried. And who gives a fuck if you are talented. Its called depression people and it sucks whether or not you are talented and hot or not. I hope he and all other people with mental issues get the help they need. Hollyweird is doing him no favors.

    Suicide is selfish… and before pepple freak out.. hear me out. To take your own life out of self-pity just hurts the people who love you who have to worry what they did wrong…. why they didn't notice.. about how much they miss you every single day…. suicide is SELFISH.

  14. 14

    Such an amazing and talented guy, just goes to show, no matter how successful or famous people are, they still struggle with depression and have problems just like everyone else. My best wishes are with him, hope he gets the help he needs as suicide is never ever the answer.

    Re: caroaber – He’s not British. He’s Irish. Anyway, I don’t think he’s been the same since his mom passed a few years ago. They were very close and it seems he’s been on a downward spiral ever since. This is sad and I hope he gets the help that he needs. He’s so talented.

    So, NOW you're telling him to stay strong and telling him that you're pulling for him??? What happened to the "Crazy Eyes, alcoholic, arrested, gayface, is that vodka, doesn't Jonathan Rhys Myers look like a child molester, there's just something totally pervy and creepy about him, keep an eye on him boys" talk????? Perez is finding it easier to lose his weight than his two-faced personality. Jennifer needs to belittle him again.

  17. 17

    so sad.. i hope he stays strong, i loved him in the tudors!!

  18. 18

    I hope he makes it through his struggles. I hope the best for him and his family.

  19. 19

    poor guy. it's so sad that such a unique, talented and handsome man is going through this. I wish celebs (and just people in general) would learn to stay away from alcohol! it obviously just makes matters worse and it can really ruin your life. I hope he turns his life around and is okay in the end.

  20. 20

    So sad - he's an amazing actor and of course clearly hot - if people haven't seen Velvet Goldmine - watch it immediately!!!!!!!! JRM, Ewan McGregor, Christian Bale, Eddie Izzard, Toni Collette…need I say more???

  21. 21

    I guess it happens to people who are too sensible… The world is cruel so take care you all!!

  22. 22

    This is another spoiled little cock end who needs to just die. and hurry up about it. Slit your wrists, take 4 bottles of Tylenol PM extra strength, 2 bottles of sleeping pills and sit in a bath with a toaster. That will do it. Bin all the taking an overdose crap. JUST DO IT!

  23. 23

    I agree. He is such a talented actor. I hope that he can find the strength to battle his demon(s). Such a battle can be won but it will take support and paryers. Will say prayers here.

  24. 24

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – your fucking sick, this guy is so talented . why dont you go wish death on someone more deserving like lohan or kardashian or yourself.

  25. 25

    Bless his heart. Hope he has a good family, friends and medical professional to help him through this rough period. I have no doubt he will bounce back. He has many many fans that adore him!!!!!

    When I first saw this handsome guy, I thought he was the next (acting) Elvis. He obviously needs some real help to regain his perspective. Substances mess up balanced thinking.

    Re: caroaber – HE IS IRISH YOU IDIOT!!!!!

  28. 28

    He lived in an orphanage. Sexual abuse?

  29. 29

    his eyes always look so empty…

    Re: caroaber – um yea hes irish,

    Re: tellall
    He lived rent free from the age of fifteen with a man who was later convicted of drugging and sexually abusing a fifteen year old boy. Read into that what you will (and based on certain behaviours its MORE than likely - see behind the scenes Gormenghast fiotage and it has been specualted he is talking about himself) but that, combined with a poor upbringing, an alcoholic mother who could not feed him, an absent father and early health problems, not to mention the premature death of his Ma? Well, he's fucked up by his own life, isn't he?
