Celebrities rarely talk about mental illness.
It’s no secret that ‘anxiety’ and ‘depression’ are hardly sexy topics of conversation, and when you’re promoting a new movie/your latest memoir/a line of perfume for tiny kittens, it’s not really the message you want to send to your potential customers.
But sometimes, our favourite Hollywood stars get very, very candid and when they do, it makes me really happy.
Of course, I’m not delighting in the fact that other people are suffering.
In a perfect world, no-one would struggle with crippling social anxiety. Or depression so deep it makes them never want to leave their bed.
