About his Personal Life
Jonathan Rhys Meyers had been in a relationship with Reena Hammer for almost eight years that is from 2004 to 2012. Reena Hammer was the daughter of Ruby Hammer who was famous makeup artist owning cosmetics brand Ruby & Mille having the turnover of 5 million per year.
Coming to father of Reena Hammer his name is George Hammer who was a businessman, and he owns Harrod’s luxury spa UK distributor. It was stated by different sources that Reena was the reason for Jonathan going for alcohol treatment program.
Due to several issues, Jonathan and Reene broke up in 2012. At that point of time, the reason did remain unclear though; later, it was stated by Reena that she was happy after the breakup. Reena in an interview out spoke that out of jealousy and anger they had broken apart.
Since then, Jonathan Rhys Meyers has been in a relationship with Mara Lane. Mara was an actress as well as a film producer in the film industry. Before that, she is into teaching.
In 2013 Meyers and Mara met in a party and immediately they have fallen for each other. In 2014 Mara and Meyers got engaged, and both had married in 2016. They had a son whose name is Wolf Rhys Meyers. Meyers said that in 2017 Mara miscarried the second child. The couple was living in Ireland along with his son.
About His Alcohol Addiction
Everyone has their own flaws. Johny has his too – and it was his alcohol addiction. However, what I really loved about all of it was that he remained transparent about it and actually decided to fight the addiction, rather than do nothing about it and pretend it’s going to be all right.
It was stated by Jonathan representative that, Meyers had received the alcohol treatment in 2007, 2010, 2011 and 2017. Due to his alcohol addiction in 2010, he got an order to pay €1000 from French court and also sentenced for suspension of public intoxication. In 2017 he came across an issue where he had been ejected from Dublin airport because of his alcohol addiction.
Meyers in spite of what you could say having a somewhat turbulent personal life, has been one of the finest actors you can ever come across. And he has been able to brush things up beside him whenever things didn’t go his way.
It’s his versatility that really makes him the king. He can act just about anywhere and in any role. It’s what makes him special for me, and one that I would look up to always.
