We can even take it a step further and, oh, I don’t know, avoid reporting such suicide attempts as news, too.
Late last month, the ridiculously hot (sorry) Jonathan Rhys Meyers (The Tudors, From Paris With Love) was rushed to Central London hospital after being found slumped over on his floor. Paramedics were called, but it took police backup to escort the uncooperative Meyers to the hospital. Apparently, the 33-year-old actor (who’s had substance abuse problems and completed rehabs in the past) had overdosed.
Immediately, The Sun ran a story about the “suspected suicide attempt.”
