Jonathan Rhys Meyers attempted suicide!

Jonathan Rhys Meyers

There’s really nothing at all funny about this so I’m not even going to attempt levity: The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers allegedly attempted suicide on Tuesday, but thankfully survived. He is also battling with alcohol dependency.

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. SOURCE

Look, I don’t really know the guy, so I can’t really make a judgment call either way here, but no one should ever feel so alone and utterly powerless that they should take their own life. If you or someone you know has suicidal thoughts, go to friends and family for help and call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). We’ll go back to making fun of stupid rich people later, but this is important.
