This week The Sun reports the young actor was observed to have developed the shakes because of his excessive drinking.
Rhys Meyers has reportedly checked into a five-star rehabilitation centre in South Africa just days after finishing a drying-out session in London.
A source told The Sun: 'He was very pale and thin and had restless leg syndrome, with one leg shaking if he sat down. That's typical of people who've done a lot of alcohol.'
Tudors star Meyers is reported to have signed up for a three-month stay at the exclusive Montrose Place centre in Cape Town. Let's hope he can get the better of the difficulties he's been dealing with there.
