What a heartbreaking image.
On May 15, Jonathan Rhys Meyers was spotted out in London clutching a bottle of vodka and looking quite worse for the wear.
The actor, who has struggled with alcohol dependency issues in the past, claimed to have suffered a "minor relapse" in an apology post on his girlfriend's Instagram account.
Check out Jonathan's full message (below)!
Dealing with addiction sucks, even if you're Dracula!
That's why NBC apparently created a payment plan for Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who has struggled with alcohol dependency, that would motivate him to finish filming all 10 episodes of Dracula this summer in Budapest!
According to sources, NBC withheld a sizable portion of Jonathan's salary, an estimated $100,000 for each episode, until the filming had been done in its entirety.
Dracula himself received a per diem and other small payments (hopefully not in blood), but the majority of his entire salary was apparently given to him only if he completed the season!
Despite reportedly having a meltdown onset and being subsequently hospitalized, Jonathan, who was required a sober companion with him during filming, made good on his word and the show finished filming!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers was unhappy with his role in The Tudors??

The seski Dracula star spoke about his experiences making TV shows, specifically The Tudors!
Jonny reveals of the Showtime series:
OMG!!! He's so dreamy!! So delicious!! So undead!!!
Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays Dracula in an upcoming NBC adaptation of the famous Bram Stoker novel and think he will make the seXXXiest Prince of Darkness, EVER!

We love new things!
A couple of months ago we posted the last trailer for Mortal Instrument: City of Bones, which opens August 21st, with an all-star cast of Lily Collins, her boyfriend-co-star Jamie Campbell Bower (who says mixing business with pleasure is wrong!), Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, and many more!
It's great to see the ever-talented Lily Collins be apart of what looks like an awesome film franchise, after watching parts she auditioned for go respectively to KStew and Jlaw in the successful Twilight and Hunger Games series, a casting process, which like their movie counterparts, probably involved kids fighting to the death and a lot of (blood)sucker punches. So glad that Lily has her own book-based mega-blockbuster franchise to call her own!
Mortal Instruments is about a girl who discovers that she is half angel, and must use her newfound powers to protect the world from demons: Greater Demons, Lesser Demons, and (we hope) Telemarketers. If the movie is anything like the crossbow and flamethrower-filled trailer, it should turn the audience into a City of Bonerz!
Check out the most recent trailer (above) and let us know your thoughts!
Of all the shows NBC has announced for the fall, this may be the most intriguing! Yeah, we said it- Dracula has us in his thrall!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the sexiness Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers brings to the villainous vampire!
You know what we like best about this incarnation of the classic count? (Well, besides Jonathan's shirtless scene!) It's not an update! It's an honest-to-goodness period adaptation!
It's going to be like Downton Abbey! With blood!
Ch-ch-check out the pics (below) to see just how much!
