Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was taken to hospital Tuesday night by paramedics after he was reportedly found slumped on the floor of his London home, suspected of having taken pills, British tabloid The Sun reports. The paper says Meyers was discharged early Wednesday. The 33-year-old actor, who plays Henry VIII in the BBC series The Tudors, has reportedly been battling a drinking problem. The Sun said Meyers had checked into a rehabilitation center in South Africa earlier in the month for his fifth stint in rehab.
