LOS ANGELES, May 19 (UPI) -- Jonathan Rhys Meyers' publicist has confirmed the Irish actor is again seeking treatment for his addiction to alcohol.

The 32-year-old star of TV's "The Tudors," and the films "Velvet Goldmine," "Bend it Like Beckham," "Match Point" and "From Paris with Love" first entered rehab in April 2007.

"He just really wants to get better," a source close to the actor told People.com. "This has been an ongoing battle for him."

Meyers' representative confirmed the actor is again seeking treatment for substance-abuse issues but declined to offer any other details, People.com said.
