Jonathan Rhys Meyers busted
Well I guess this makes him part of Hollywood… officially. Actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, famous for his role in “The Tudors” and “The Velvet Goldmine” was busted yesterday for being drunk in public and breach of the peace in a a Dublin Airport.
He has a history of problem drinking and was admitted to a California alcoholism-treatment clinic in April and checked out the following month.
This doesn’t really surprise me considering how spun up he seemed at the premier of “August Rush” his new movie with Keri Russell and Robin Williams.
In an interview last year, Rhys Meyers said…
“I gave up drinking a few years ago, and this is the first time I’ve spent time in my country trying not to drink,” he told The Associated Press in October 2006.
“I would never drink again. It is hard to avoid. But listen, you do what you want to do. I don’t want to do that,” he said. “I want my career, and you can’t really do that and be successful on the screen.
