Daryl Hannah, actress and incredible badass, has just opened up about being diagnosed with austism when she was a kid!
She said that as a child, the news brought with it a 'debilitating shyness' and a struggle to quietly manage her symptoms without anyone catching on. We mean, that would be a huge thing for someone who's been in countless movies — like Blade Runner and Wall Street — to reveal, without anyone having known!
We can't imagine how hard it is to live with Parkinson's and how much strength it takes to deal with the situation — especially when it interferes with the biggest love of your life, along with all the little things you might have been taking for granted.

Luckily, his prognosis improved to a 50 per cent chance of surviving a year once he started chemotherapy, and now 11 months on, he is cancer-free after a private operation in Germany — which removed his pancreas, along with his spleen, gall bladder and part of his stomach. Here's what he said:
We'll let that sink in for a moment, because that would be devastating for someone who has made their life all about singing. She's best known for songs You're No Good and When Will I Be Loved, and she just revealed her diagnosis and battle with Parkinson's to AARP.
She was having problems with her voice when she sought the medical advice but now, this is what she said:
We can NOT believe that intolerance like this exists, and this whole story makes us so sad and sick to our stomachs! We can't believe there are people out there willing to assert themselves as such uncaring and unsympathetic human beings!
Here's what happened! We spotted a tweet from adorable musicians Lennon and Maisy (proof of how adorable they are HERE) it said this:
