Jonathan Rhys Meyers appears grey and tired after insisting he’s no alcoholic

He has recently struggled with a booze-related relapse on board a plane.

So all eyes were on Jonathan Rhys Meyers when he appeared on ITV’s This Morning today.

The Hollywood star, who was recently embroiled in a drunken mid-air fight, looked tired and drawn as he promoted his new movie, Damascus Friday.

Yet, despite sporting a sharp suit, the 41-year-old’s appearance divided viewers of the daily magazine show.

Some praised his style and calm presence, while others claimed his on-going struggle with alcohol has aged him.

"I’ve always been a fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers, but he has aged a bit," said one. "I’m gonna watch Bend It Like Beckham tonight [instead]".

Another viewer pointed out his radiant smile, saying: "Wowzers, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has some sparkly veneers!"

A third criticised his voice, saying: "He used to have an Irish accent".

But others heaped praise on the performer and father-of-one.

"Nice to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers looking happy & healthy on This Morning," said one. "He came across so well – what a nice, intelligent, down to earth guy," said another.

A third claimed he was "looking & sounding the best-ever in an interview".

His appearance comes just 24 hours after he apologised for his latest drunken drama.

Speaking to the Mail on Sunday he said: "I’ve let myself down by relapsing, and it’s my responsibility. Nobody else is to blame."

However, Jonathan denied that he is an alcoholic and instead, he claims to be allergic to it.

"I don’t suffer from alcoholism – I suffer from an allergy to alcohol every time I drink it," he added.

"When I drink, the consequences are so devastating that it is a problem. But I never need a drink. It’s not something I crave."

*This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV
