18 Celebrities Who Have Suffered From Depression

Posted by PZ on August 6th, 2010

Here is a look at 18 celebrities who have suffered from some form of depression at some time in their life. Some have spoken openly about their battle, such as Jim Carrey, who admitted to taking medication for his depression, while others have suffered from a different kind of depression – postpartum depression which occurs after a pregnancy, such as Gwyneth Paltrow. In some of the saddest cases here, a celebrity has tried to take their own life, such as Owen Wilson’s suicide attempt in 2007.
