Jonathan Rhys Meyers JRMRehab200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - "The Tudors" star Jonathan Rhys Meyers has reportedly checking into an alcohol rehabilitation facility, according to Ireland's "Independent."

The Irish-born actor sought treatment at least once before at Promises in Malibu, although it is not clear where Rhys Meyers is now being treated.

The 3rd season of "The Tudors" is not scheduled to begin production until June, and producers believe Meyers will be healthy by then.

The actor has talked openly about his problems with alcohol. "I didn't start drinking until I was 25. Since then I've been drunk maybe a dozen and a half times. When I do I'm like Bambi. I'm all over the place, hopeless, like a 16-year-old kid. People notice," the actor said last year.
