He’s had struggles with addiction in the past, and now Jonathan Rhys Meyers has checked back into rehab for his alcoholism.
The “Tudors” actor was observed “pounding drinks” before a flight recently and was prohibited from boarding the plane by airline personnel. He was reportedly belligerent and disruptive throughout the ordeal and has since decided to get help for his drinking.
He plays King Henry VIII on “The Tudors,” and Jonathan Rhys Meyers says his character’s sexual exploits are no big deal.
In a recent interview, Jonathan told press, “In The Tudors I’ve only slept with like 22 people. Which is not bad because if I go out in London on a Saturday night and I say to some handsome young dude or some handsome young girl that’s standing in the club: ‘How many people have you slept with this year?’ ‘Er about 50′. So it’s not so much.”
