by at . Comments

Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is a very talented actor with a very troubled personal life.

Great Britain's The Sun reports that paramedics arrived at the star's house in London Tuesday night because he swallowed pills in what is believed to be a suicide attempt.

"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life," an insider tells the newspaper.

Earlier this month, The Tudors star checked into a five-star rehabilitation clinic in South Africa. It was his fifth stint in such a facility.

Let's all hope there's still time for Rhys-Meyers to find his way.


UPDATE: A Scotland Yard spokesman says: "We can confirm we were called by the London Ambulance Service to an address in NW8 to report to a man refusing treatment. Police attended, and the man was taken by ambulance to a central London hospital. That was the end of our involvement."

A friend, meanwhile, says the actor "relapsed," but did not try to kill himself.
