Jonathan Rhys Meyers Bounces Back

You may or may not have been following the mess with The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers, 37. If not, here’s a refresher. If so, keep reading…

Jonathan Rhys Meyers has issued an apology for his behaviour, admitting to a relapse (Meyers has HUGE problems with alcohol) and his lion-faced fiancée posted this picture on Instagram to prove his sobriety and their solidarity.

I think I’m going to need more long-term proof before I think Meyers is back on the wagon. Hopefully starting with a movie where Meyers can actually behave himself on the set.

Jonathan Rhys Meyers is a Mess

The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers, 37, was seen on the mean streets of London drinking directly from a bottle of vodka (see: sure signs of alcoholism).

Our friends tell us that Meyers is considered impossible to work with. In an interview Isabel Coixet, who directed Meyers in Another Me let slip that she found him “terribly difficult” and claimed he “made work hard for everyone on set.”

There was once a time Meyers was believed to be in the calibre of Christian Bale and now he’s drinking directly from a bottle in the street… Well, that’s Hollywood for you!!
