Jonathan Lipnicki Opens Up About Being Bullied, Says He Suffered From Anxiety & Depression

Jonathan Lipnicki is opening up about growing up as a child star.

The 26-year-old actor – who is best known for his roles in Jerry Maguire and Stuart Little – recently took to Instagram where he shared that he suffered from bullying and depression while he was younger.

“”As a kid/teen, I was made fun of relentlessly by some people who are now even my friends on FB,” Jonathan shared. “I was told I was a has-been and would never book a job again.”

Jonathan went on to say that he would suffer from panic attacks nights before school.

However, Jonathan went on to say that he was able to defeat his bullies and stay strong.

“Im sharing a little of my experience. It gives me anxiety being this open, but being bullied is a universal problem. I am not a victim, but rather empowered because I was able to turn to my art. I am grateful for the amazing life I have and I hope I can pass on that it DOES get better. As much as it is easier said than done, overcoming being bullied is a reality and I hope this resonates with all of you,” Jonathan shared.

Jonathan Lipnicki is opening up about working with Tom Cruise in the hit movie Jerry Maguire, which premiered 20 years ago!

The 26-year-old actor stopped by Access Hollywood and had nothing but nice things to say about him.

“I mean he is the best person to work with,” he said about Tom. “And the fact that I got to work with him on my first movie really set a great tone for someone to look up to. He’s the ultimate professional. To this day, I see every Tom Cruise movie that comes out.”

“He gave me actually advice pretty recently like four years ago,” Jonathan added. “I went over to his house because I actually — I cold-called his office at United Artists and asked for advice and, you know, he got back to me and I went over and he is such a hard worker in what he told me about hard work and being respectful. I mean a big part of his success he attributes to being on time and being polite to people and knowing people’s names and it was incredible to sit down with one of your favorite actors and have an hour long conversation about acting.”
