Sexy Jonathan Rhys Meyers has put an end to all the media gossip that he recently checked into rehab, insisting his party animal reputation is completely exaggerated by the press. The Hollywood star made the headlines wordwide in February after it was alleged he had enrolled in a rehab center in England to deal with an addiction to alcohol. He sparked even more rumors by canceling scheduled appearances on television at the start of April and failing to show up at two galas in Los Angeles California and Dublin, where he was due to collect awards for his work. But now Jonathan is denying he was in rehab but is admitting he did spend time with a counselor in Middlesex, England. He say's, "I just felt I needed time off and I didn't need to go to awards ceremonies. You can get slightly waylaid as an actor doing that sort of thing and I'm never that comfortable at them anyway." The Tudors star is also adamant that reports of his outrageous behavior are overblown, insisting fans would be shocked if they saw how dull his life really is. He says, "I live an incredibly low-key life. I think people would like to think I'm a hell of a lot naughtier than I am actually. I am actually quite a boring guy. "I spent the last week and a half playing bloody golf. Me, Jonathan Rhys Meyers! If anyone saw me in those stupid golf clothes on the golf course, there would have been a different story written!
