Baby's On Fire(water)

Apparently the strain of being a straight gay man has made Jonathan Rhys Meyers turn to the sauce, as he's recently entered an alcohol rehab program. From People.com:
Jonathan Rhys Meyers, star of Showtime's The Tudors, has entered a rehab facility, his rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

"After a non-stop succession of filming, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has entered an alcohol-treatment program," rep Meredith O'Sullivan says. "He felt a break was needed to maintain his recovery."

The 29-year-old actor, who costarred with Scarlett Johansson in Woody Allen's Match Point last year, plays Henry VIII in The Tudors, which premiered on April 1, and recently finished filming the drama August Rush with Keri Russell, Terrence Howard and Robin Williams.

Meyers's rep adds: "Jonathan plans to resume his schedule following completion."
We wish you a speedy recovery, JRM! Your fans wait with baited breath for your next pouty, flouncy, fey, fantabulously foppish performance--on film or in real life!

I was so delighted by the Maxwell Demon photo that I think you should just randomly post Velvet Goldmine photos on your blog, even when they don't have anything to do with the story!

Poor JRM. He's Irish, isn't he? Maybe he doesn't really have a drinking problem, he's just being Irish!

Do you think he really needed The 'Hab? Is it a publicity stunt? Do you think he'll finally take this time to realize that I'm his true love? Will he reprise his role as Brian Slade?

At least he never shaved his head or did anything insane just to call attention to himself and his rehab stint.
