Jonathan Rhys Meyers, star of The Tudors, has checked into rehab to seek treatment for alcohol addiction, according to The Daily Mirror.
The site says the 33-year-old actor spent over a week at a London clinic just last month. A source adds Meyers was "guzzling" several vodka cocktails at the JFK Airport in New York last week.
When he was trying to board his plane to LA, the United Airlines staff reportedly wouldn't allow him on the flight because he was allegedly intoxicated. The Mirror claims this resulted in Meyers launching into a verbal tirade.
Rhys is currently dating 24-year-old heiress Reena Hammer. Read what his rep said about Jonathan's need for rehab ... after the jump.
