Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has reportedly checked into rehab in a bid to kick his drink demons once and for all.



According to website Independent.ie, the Tudors star is attending a recovery center in England to deal with his alcohol problem. It would be Meyers' third attempt at rehab - in 2005, he spent time at Malibu, California's Promises Clinic in a bid to get sober, and he underwent further treatment in April 2007.

However, he suffered a setback in November 2007 when he was arrested at Dublin Airport by Irish police and charged with being drunk and in breach of the peace. It later emerged that Meyers' mother had died just days before his arrest.

The actor has previously spoken out about his battle with drinking, saying, "When I do (drink) I'm like Bambi. I'm all over the place, hopeless, like a 16-year-old kid. People notice." And an insider on the Tudors show claims producers warned Meyers about his alcohol intake during filming on the program's upcoming third season.

The source says, "He is one of the nicest guys in the world, he's a pleasure to work with. He has his demons, and he's trying to cope with them as best he can."

Dayum...what is he like 31 years old if that? Seems like the acting business seems to attract a lot of very creative, talented, troubled, and addiction prone people. Life in the fast lane...

I read that he broke up with his girlfriend a few months ago. Maybe that was a trigger for him to start drinking again.

His Mum died not that long ago too. I hope he gets help. But i've said this before it is mighty hard to stay sober in the UK. It is so ingrained in their culture.

Rhys Meyers back at work after rehab


Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has checked out of rehab after receiving treatment for alcoholism.

The troubled Corkman has left the recovery centre in England, after spending just over two weeks at the exclusive Causeway Retreat on Osea Island, Essex.

It was the third time that the star has sought rehab help for alcohol, this time after a nine-day drinking session. He has now flown back to Los Angeles to continue his work.

He is said to have held several low-key meetings with movie executives in relation to his upcoming commitments, while sources close to The Tudors production in Ireland say work is going ahead as scheduled for the next series of the award-winning drama.

Meanwhile, friends close to the Tudors star say he will continue to seek help for the deep-rooted issues behind his alcohol problem.

"He is back in LA and he is back at work in so far as he is holding meetings with various parties about upcoming projects," said a source.

"He is a tortured soul in that when he does have days off, he can spiral quickly into a place where neither he nor his loved ones would like him to be."

What's a seven course Irish dinner?

A six pack and a potato.

The first episode of Season 3 is available at Showtime.com now, and it's supposed to be on Showtime On-Demand on the 19th. Woo hoo, I can't wait to see it. Unfortunately, I don't have sound on my computer so I'll have to wait til it shows up on On-Demand.

Let's blame the Mother AGAIN!!


Henry VIII 'emotionally dependent on women'


Henry VIII was emotionally dependent on women, according to the historian David Starkey, who has identified striking similarities between the monarch's and his mother's handwriting.




By Matthew Moore
Last Updated: 6:56AM GMT 16 Mar 2009

Unlike most early modern princes the Tudor monarch was brought up in a feminine household and was almost certainly taught to write by his mother, analysis shows.
This upbringing shaped Henry's "emotionally incontinent" personality, leading him to fall and love with and marry so many women, Starkey claims.

The consequences for British history were immense; the 16th Century king's desire to secure a divorce from his first wife Catherine of Aragon so he could marry the attractive young Anne Boleyn helped bring about the country's break from Rome, and eventual acceptance of Protestantism.
Starkey, a Tudor specialist who has presented several television series about English monarchs, has curated a new exhibition at the British Library where examples of the king's handwriting will go on show.
Henry's square, laboured letters bear a strong resemblance to those of his mother Elizabeth of York and sister Mary, but are different to the styles of his tutors and advisers, including Sir Thomas More.
The young prince was raised by his mother from the age of 11 following the death of his father Henry VII in 1509, and surviving papers indicate that she was the strongest influence on his education and personality, according to Starkey.
"Henry's handwriting shows how very close he was to females in his youth," he said.
"He was the only boy and became emotionally dependent on women. Or, to put it more bluntly, he was emotionally incontinent."
He added: "He could never be without women in his life and was always falling in love. He also married, at least when it comes to most of his six wives, for love. It is just that he would also fall out of love."
Starkey is updating his biography of Henry to reflect the new research. Henry VIII: Man and Monarch, opens at the British Library on April 23.

Somebody needs to go back and check their history. Yes, it's true that Henry became king in 1509 following the death of his father. However, he was 18 at the time, not 11. It was his mother who died when he was 11 but that in 1503.

I thought Starkey was SUPPOSED to be the end all be all historian on The Tudors. But how in the hell could his Mother raise him if she died first. I do know he was very close to his sister but that's not that odd.

Okay, so I finally got to watch the Season 3 premiere episode on Showtime On-Demand yesterday. Man, is it good! I'm pretty sure most of you have already seen the new Jane Seymour, but I had decided to wait until the new season started. She's a bit sharper-featured than the last one who was sweetly blandly pretty IMHO. She was considered the mousiest of Henry's wives but was kind of able to get her way anyway.

I'll spoiler some of the action:

Spoiler:
 
BTW, Henry is still looking handsome and fit in this episode, but at the end, it shows he has this really awful looking wound on his leg that's apparently extremely painful. It's really gross.

The new season starts April 5th!

JRM looks thinner and kind of puny in the promos... definitely not working out for the role. So, Instead of putting on weight, he is losing it. Shocked

Still, can't wait for it to start. Hope the quality of the production is maintained.

Well, the new season started last night and was not a disapointment. JRM is looking thin and pale which works with the story line considering he is supposed to be having medical issues. I like the new actress playing Jane Seymour, she is more interesting than the previous one. Guess she won't be around long though..

It looks like Joss Stone has some nude scenes coming up next week, that really suprizes me. Shocked

Actually, the scenes of Anne of Cleves are more "coming attractions" for the entire season not next week's episode. It would be a little early for her.

Boy, that Henry can certainly turn on a dime, can't he! In the beginning, Cromwell is getting all sorts of honors and at the end, Henry vows to destroy him.

Oh, that makes sense. I thought Jane should be around for at least 1-2 more episodes before she kicks the bucket.

So true about fickle Henry. He was fickle about love and matters of state. But, it all comes down to it being all about him. I suspect he was a hardcore narcissist, and a very selfish, self absorbed man, but I guess some of the paranoia and self absorption came with the territory as king...

Actually, someone on the IMDB Tudors board said that the character we're thinking of is Lady Ursula Misselden who right now is a lady-in-waiting to Queen Jane.

You mean about the nude gal on the swing I saw in the preview? Isn't Lady Ursula the one who got the necklace to be that guy's mistress? She is a different one that was nude in the preview, or at least I thought so. More blonde...
