TROUBLED telly hunk Jonathan Rhys Meyers was taken to hospital by ambulance after a suspected suicide attempt.

Hellraiser Meyers - Henry VIII in BBC series The Tudors - is believed to have downed pills at his £3million home.
Paramedics answering a 999 call found him slumped on the floor. But they had to call police after he refused treatment at the scene for more than 30 minutes. A source said: "This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life."
The 33-year-old - who has been battling a drink problem - was finally taken to a hospital near his home in Maida Vale, Central London, on Tuesday night.
He was discharged in the early hours yesterday. Asked later how he was, red-eyed Meyers told The Sun: "No comment."
Yesterday a woman neighbour said: "I saw the ambulance arriving and was worried to death.
"Jonathan is a lovely guy. You see him all the time in the street. He says hello and is very pleasant. I hope he is fine."
Earlier this month he checked into a five-star rehabilitation centre in South Africa - his fifth stint in rehab. Irish-born Meyers has starred in movies including Alexander and Bend It Like Beckham and is a former Hugo Boss model.
He has spoken before about his booze hell. And he admitted: "When I do drink I'm like Bambi. I'm all over the place like a 16-year-old kid."
Last night Scotland Yard confirmed: "Officers were called by London Ambulance Service following reports of a man refusing treatment. The man was taken to hospital."
