Jonathan Rhys Meyers looks to be putting the past behind him.
The Irish actor (37) hit headlines around the world last month when he was pictured looking dishevelled and drinking vodka in the street in London.
The former Dracula star kept a low profile after the photos were published, instead choosing to issue an apology on his fiancee Mara Lane's Instagram account.
But the Cork native seems to be getting over his relapse and looked healthy as he strolled the streets of London yesterday. Meyers was pictured with a Topman shopping bag in Mayfair yesterday afternoon, dressed casually for the sunny weather.
He has a well documented struggle with alcohol abuse and has previously completed several different rehab programmes over the years.
Mara and I are thankful for your support and kindness during this time," he wrote.
“I apologise for having a minor relapse and hope that people don’t think too badly of me."
He is currently set to star in a new action film, Damascus Cover, which would mark his first big screen role since his 2010 film From Paris With Love, opposite John Travolta.
