Info on TV appearances

Jonathan appeared on “The View” Tuesday, but unfortunately pulled out of his other two scheduled appearances:

Sick Rhys Meyers Pulls The Plug On U.S. TV Appearances

Illness has forced Jonathan Rhys Meyers to cancel a New York publicity campaign for the new season of his hit TV period drama, “The Tudors.”

After appearances on a handful of TV shows, Rhys Meyers disappeared from the airwaves and skipped booked spots on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and the “Martha Stewart” show on Wednesday and Thursday, respectively.

The star’s spokeswoman, Meredith O’Sullivan, insists a bout of illness is to blame for his no-shows.

She tells WENN, “After Jonathan completed two full press days in New York, he came down with something and we had to pull him from his remaining press.”

Rhys Meyers spent time in rehab in 2007 to treat alcohol abuse and Hollywood gossips claim he returned in February for another stint. His publicist insists his current illness has nothing to do with his past drinking problems.

Wishing Jonathan well during this time!

    Dear Jonny,
    I may just be speaking to the wind and you probably will never see this, but I’ll take a chance. I want you to know there is an enormous amount of people who care and love you and sincerely hope you become rested and strong with that incredible energy you are known to have. It saddens my heart not to see that sparkle in your eyes. Please take care and God Bless you always.

    Hello Jonny, please don’t worry. We love you!!! Get well soon. Take your time. You are a smart human being with a wonderful character and very warm heart and you need a rest. You have too much stress and pressure. Don’t have fear. You are strong enough. Believe me, the time will come that you can smile and work again. You are always “my king”.

    Well, whatever his reasons for canceling these appearances, in the end it’s him who ends up hurt because next time he needs to do a press tour people will be more reluctant to book him.

    I just hope he’s okay.

    I bet he is sick. I know that what he is going through mentally and physically with his addiction is horrible. He also probably doesn’t have any true friends that can stand beside him and see him through. I know a lot of celebs (reg. people too) drink a lot at parties and do other bad things. Kind of makes it hard to stay away from it all and get your life back together. I am sure his “close” friends are not around him in the states supporting him. His other so called “friends” probably do more harm than good. It is a tough, hard road and I hope he makes it to the end. He has such talent it is a shame to throw it away. Their are other ways to have a good time. He just needs friends that will actually help him see that and be there through the good times and bad. Life for me right now is tough and I wish I had the guts to talk to my close friends because I know I could get through my issues if I had that help. If he feels anything like I do, you’re angry with yourself and very depressed. The song he sang in August Rush hits home for me, “Something Inside.” I put the top down on my mustang and sit in the dark looking at the stars listening to this song, among others. Not sure it will help me though. I wish him all the luck in finding his way as I search for my way too.

    A comment about the premiere party held in NYC last Monday– when JRM was being interviewed, you could see a whole table covered with glasses of champagne and people around him drinking. I can’t imagine how hard it would be for JRM to be near alcohol all evening (not only seeing it but smelling it) especially since he just left rehab. He might be taking an anti-alcohol med which causes a violent physical reaction such as vomiting and nausea when the person drinks. Also, any meds that may have been prescribed in rehab to stabilize his condition may still be causing side effects– these meds can be powerful and sometimes the dose needs adjusting. I hope that he has a good support system post-inpatient treatment and that his recovery is an everyday concern for everyone around him. JRM– blessings to you always.

    Hello everyone and Jonathan (if you ever do read these messages/ no offense to site organisers as I think it is gr8!!!) To everyone,
    this is a good opportunity to express opinions about Jonathan’s fantastic performances in many films and TV series, as much of the time people are so busy with life and chores it brings every day there is barely a moment for anything else, like great actors of our time and great films
    (THE TUDORS!!!!!!!!!!)
    To Jonathan,
    Sad to hear that you are unwell and sincerely hope you are well soon. Acting can be a great burden as well as enormous satisfaction. I have been very glad to watch the full two seasons of the TUDORS!!!!! As a primary school teacher we have to encourage our children to think of monarchs and historical persons as real people and ,of all , this is the first time I imagined Henry VIII in this way. I think he is truly YOUR OWN. Well done!!!!!!!!!!!!! hope this is not the last impersonation of important historical and not characters in your career. This as other of your movies and TV series is a great success.

    JRM is one of the most talented and versatile actors in the world today. I have enjoyed literally everthing I have seen him in. I don’t care if he has an addiction issue, many people do.
    However, I read recently that he denied going to rehab. Whether he did or did not I certainly wish him well. It is really unfair that he must be stalked by the pap all the time, I am sure never having any privacy is stressful in itself. I do not put celebrities up on a pedestal nor have I ever purchased any of those dreadful rag mags that pretend to be journalism. I simply appreciate celebrities such as JRM for their craft and their ability to allow me to escape from my life for a couple of hrs as I watch them on screen. I hope that whatever the issue is, he is allowed to disappear for a bit and gather his strength so that we may continue to follow his growing career. He has many years and great roles yet to come.
    All the best and take care of yourself JRM!
