Good to see Jonathan Rhys Meyers back on the mend after some British tabloids published photos of the Irish actor in a scruffy and clearly drunken state a few weeks back.

The invasive photos were pretty tragic as JRM, vodka bottle in hand, was barely recognizable. He’s struggled with alcohol addiction for some time and has done stints in rehab, but says that his latest tear isn’t cause for concern.

“I apologize for having a minor relapse and hope that people don't think too badly of me … I am on the mend and thank well wishers and sorry for my disheveled appearance as I was on my way home from a friend’s and had not changed. I feel I made a mistake and feel quite embarrassed but this was just a blip in my recovery, otherwise I'm living a healthy life,” said a post on his fiancée Mara’s Instagram account last week.

The couple posed for a photo and JRM looked back to himself, thankfully.
