Illness has forced Jonathan Rhys Meyers to cancel a New York publicity campaign for the new season of 'The Tudors'.
After appearances on a handful of TV shows, Rhys Meyers disappeared from the airwaves and skipped booked spots on 'Late Night with Jimmy Fallon' and the 'Martha Stewart' show on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
The star's spokeswoman, Meredith O'Sullivan, insists a bout of illness is to blame for his no-shows.
She said: "After Jonathan completed two full press days in New York, he came down with something and we had to pull him from his remaining press."
Rhys Meyers spent time in rehab in 2007 to treat alcohol abuse and Hollywood gossips claim he returned in February for another stint. His publicist insists his current illness has nothing to do with his past drinking problems.
