Ryan Phillippe has played many tortured characters in his career, but it turns out that he can be one himself.

In a revealing interview for Elle posted last Friday, the 40-year-old opens up about his history of depression.

The Secrets And Lies star admits:

"You know, depression has been a huge obstacle for me ever since I was a child. As you get older I think it decreases some, but I'm just innately kind of a sad person. I'm empathetic, and I take on the feelings of others and transpose myself into the position of others."

However, the hunk acknowledges that his internal sadness contributes to his unique sense of humor:

"I'm way funnier than people know me to be. And it's a dark humor, like a gallows humor. I think that's where, if you do carry any of that sadness or depression, your humor does tend to be a little darker than most people. And the greatest comedians do—trust me. I know so many of them. And they're depressed and they're dark and they have this incredible gift of humor to offer others and also, probably, therapeutically themselves."

We applaud Ryan for opening up about such a personal issue, and we hope it encourages others to share their stories!

Children's mental health should be every parent's number one priority.

As a mother herself, Kate Middleton totally understands how important it is for all kids to have a healthy childhood!

A healthy childhood means less of a chance for a youngster to grow up with mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.

This is one amazing dad.

Samuel Forrest recently experienced one of the greatest pleasures when he witnessed the birth of his son Leo in a hospital in Armenia.

However, the son was immediately diagnosed with Down Syndrome and it turned out that his wife and her family were NOT going to keep the child and instead were almost immediately going to place him in an orphanage. They made the decision while Samuel was waiting outside of the room to see his son for the first time.

But when Samuel finally held his son, he knew he couldn't do what his wife wanted. So she gave him an ultimatum.

Seriously.

Here's how Samuel explained it:

Yikes, it sounds like this guy should've thought twice about becoming Amanda Bynes' lawyer!

Apparently Artemio Santiago, the lawyer who the troubled star hired last October, is looking to be reimbursed for the thousands of dollars he shelled out for the actress.

The legal eagle has supposedly filed documents claiming he was Amanda's savior. He said when the 28-year-old was off of her meds four months ago, she hired him and he immediately got her back on track.

Sadly, the reports regarding Bobbi Kristina's health aren't any more encouraging.

Whitney Houston's daughter was reportedly put into a medically induced coma, after she was found face down in a bathtub full of water on Saturday. She was put on a ventilator and was reportedly in stable condition.

Despite that though, there are sources connected with the family saying that the doctors are now telling them Bobbi Kristina has "significantly diminished" brain function, and tests show that it's alarmingly low.

Doctors are telling the family that things don't look good, but to keep on praying.

As previously reported, the police found no evidence of drug or alcohol abuse in Bobbi Kristina's home.

We'll continue to send the family lots of prayers!
