Kristen Bell Opens Up About Her Struggle With Anxiety & Depression:

Kristen Bell got extremely candid about her struggle with anxiety and depression in a new interview with Off Camera.

The 35-year-old actress revealed that she’s battled anxiety and depression almost her whole life, as it runs in her family.

“I’m extremely codependent. I shatter a little bit when I think people don’t like me. That’s part of why I lead with kindness and I compensate by being very bubbly all the time, because it really hurts my feelings when I know I’m not liked. And I know that’s not very healthy, and I fight it all the time,” she explained.

Kristen added, “I got on a prescription when I was really young and I still take it today and I have no shame in that because my mom had said to me, ‘If you start to feel this way, talk to your doctor, talk to a psychologist, see how you want to help yourself.’”

Kristen also discussed how the world “wants to shame” people dealing with mental health issues but that it’s nothing someone should be embarrassed about.
