Paramedics rushed to the address after receiving an emergency call, but they had to contact police after he refused treatment at the scene for around 30 minutes.

A source told the UK Sun Newspaper: “"This is very sad. It was the opinion of those present that he tried to take his life.”

The actor was discharged from hospital during the early hours of Wednesday morning but would not speak with reporters.

A neighbor of the star revealed: “I saw the ambulance arriving and was worried to death - Jonathan is a lovely guy – you see him all the time in the street.

“He says hello and is very pleasant. I hope he is fine.”
