'The Tudors' Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers Hospitalized

33-year-old Irish stud and actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London this week after a possible suicide attempt involving pills, according to PEOPLE.

The Tudors star has been battling alcohol addiction over the past few years and was rumored to be found slumped on the floor in his home on Tuesday night by paramedics who were answering an emergency call, the Sun reports.

According to the report, Jonathan refused treatment so the paramedics called the police and he was taken to the hospital.
"He did relapse but he did not try to commit suicide," says a source. "He was taken to the hospital and then released."
His rep has no comment.

A Scotland Yard spokesman told PEOPLE:
"We can confirm we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address in NW8 to report to a man refusing treatment. Police attended, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital. That was the end of our involvement."
The actor was reportedly released on Wednesday. I've never seen his show but have heard great things about it and his acting ability. So sad when great stars get addicted & can't let go.
