PREVIOUSLY:
Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized following an apparent suicide attempt on Tuesday night, the UK's Sun reports.

Rhys Meyers, the star of Showtime's "The Tudors," was found in his home in Maida Vale, London, and, after refusing treatment, was rushed to the hospital, from where he was discharged early Wednesday.

He gave no comment to the newspaper following his release; British police confirmed an emergency in a statement saying, "Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment. The man was taken to hospital."

Rhys Meyers has struggled with addiction for years; he headed to rehab for a fourth time last May -- he was banned from United Airlines after a drunken flight that may have involved a racial slur -- and then again last month.
