Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized in London, England, in an incident that’s reported to be a possible suicide attempt.
The 33-year-old Irish actor, best known for his role on The Tudors, was taken to the hospital despite refusing treatment when paramedics answered an emergency call, the Sun reports. Jonathan was reportedly released from the hospital on Wednesday morning (June 29).
A spokesman for Scotland Yard told People, “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.”
Justin Timberlake is working on reviving MySpace — Justin reportedly wants to help the struggling social networking site that he’s taken an ownership stake in the company’s shares because he believes the site will help new artists. I guess it’s good on Justin’s part for wanting to help new undiscovered talent, however, it’s impossible to bring the site back. It’s worth a shot, but MySpace has been dead for years, no?

Besides Ms. Cornish, the cast includes Andrea Riseborough (“Never Let Me Go”), James D’Arcy (“Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World”) and Oscar Isaac (“Drive”).
A company release says the film, written by Madonna and Alek Keshishian (who directed “Madonna: Truth or Dare”), marks Madonna’s “narrative, feature directorial debut,” though the critically drubbed “Filth and Wisdom”from 2008 actually holds that honor
