Sometimes it’s so, so, hard for men that are as handsome as us.
Jonathan Rhys-Meyers is one of those guys that you look at and are like, ‘Well, his life must be pretty good. He gets to play the lead role of a sexy English king doing sexy English things in a time period where people were most decidedly not sexy. He gets to play sexy soccer stars and sexy singers.’ But barring that sexiness and television stardom, it seems like he’s got a raging….rage problem. He gets thrown off of flights for being belligerent, banned from airports, in and out of rehab programs. And now he’s relapsed and suffered a drug overdose which was initially labeled as a suicide attempt.
Purportedly, Rhys Meyers is taking the death of his mother to heart, but that’s no reason to treat your body like it’s an actual episode of the Tudors. It should come as no surprise that this has happened, though – if you ever catch and candid photos of the man, his eyes are the widest and most coked out orbs you’ve seen until Richard Scary’s cartoon characters start getting high.
And this has been slightly snarky, per-usual, but get well soon, Jonathan.
