LONDON, June 30 (UPI) -- Irish-born actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers was hospitalized this week after a suspected suicide attempt, Britain's The Sun newspaper reported Thursday.

Meyers has appeared in the films "Forget Paris," "August Rush," "Alexander," "Bend it Like Beckham" and "Velvet Goldmine." He is also the star of the TV series "The Tudors."

Despite his bright career, the 33-year-old Golden Globe winner has long battled an addiction to alcohol and has spent several stints in rehab.

Sources told the newspaper someone at his house called paramedics after he allegedly ingested pills. Police also were summoned and he was taken to a hospital near his home in London Tuesday night after he refused treatment at the scene for more than 30 minutes, the report said.

"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life," an insider told The Sun.

He was released from the hospital Wednesday, the report said, and declined to comment when asked by The Sun.
