Fame has a steep price to pay for those who can’t handle the lifestyle, the pressure and realities of being a celebrity. Most of us who view from the outside never see the turmoil that spins and weaves the web of depression and sometimes that of death.
After being admitted for rehab treatment on alcohol related problems five times, “Tudors” star Jonathan Rhys Meyers was just recently rushed to the hospital on account of a suicide attempt. Paramedics were forced to call the police after the 33 yrs old Irish actor refused treatment. The squabble took a good 30 minutes until he was eventually whisked away by an ambulance to a nearby hospital in north London.
Reports from sources have them definitely speculating the actor did try to take his life. Meyer’s close neighbours witnessed the incident as they all worriedly watched the commotion when the ambulance and police arrived at the actors residence.
It is believed Meyer’s overdosed on unspecified pills. Police confirmed that they were asked to attend the said incident as the London Ambulance Service called in due to a man refusing treatment.
Meyer’s was discharged from the hospital but would not comment on questions that imposed he tried to commit suicide.
The actor is known to his neighbours as a very pleasant man and never fails to greet and say hello. He is always out and about in his neighbourhood, which had all his neighbours baffled and worried when they witnessed the entire incident.
Alcoholism most certainly is a trigger factor for depression and eventual suicide. The battle may seem like a lifetime struggle for some, but so long as hope still shines even the tiniest flicker, it’s those times one finds himself getting up to fight and live through the next is what matters most. We hope the flicker continues to burn for Jonathan Rhys Meyers
