'The Tudors' Jonathan Rhys Meyers feeling royally fit

jonathan-rhys-meyers.jpgIrish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers has earned international acclaim for his performance in "The Tudors," currently airing its final season on Showtime.

During his four-year run on the show, however, his off-camera life was nearly as turbulent as that of Henry VIII, marked by the death of his beloved mother and intermittent reports of problems with alcohol.

The actor says he has gotten past all that, though, and is calmly considering his next projects.

"I think the nature of life is to change and to evolve - chrysalis to butterfly, however you want to put it," he tells Zap2it.
