Ryan Phillippe Reveals His Depression

no title

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!

Val Kilmer's Family Believes His Religion Is Preventing Him From Dealing With His Serious Throat Tumor!?

Filed under: Sad SadFacebookHealthGotta Have Faith

no title

We just hope everything is alright!

As we reported, Val Kilmer was rushed to UCLA Medical Center last Monday when he reportedly started bleeding from his throat, in what doctors would later discover — via surgery — was a throat tumor.

Last Saturday, the 55-year-old went on his Facebook page to declare he didn't have surgery or a throat tumor, simply referring to his medical dilemma as a "complication."

Well now, the former Batman star's family is speaking up by not only validating the previous tumor claims, but also asserting that his religious beliefs are preventing him from getting the help he truly needs!
