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!

Ryan Phillippe Might Soon Be Spreading Secrets & Lies For ABC!

If Ryan Phillippe doesn't get this part, we will have some very cruel intentions towards ABC!

JK! But SRSLY make this happen ABC! Ryan is in final talks to play the lead role in the pilot of its series Secrets & Lies, and we have all fingers, toes, and other appendages crossed that negotiations go well, and Ryan gets it!

The crime mystery series is adapted from an Australian TV show and focuses on the family man, hopefully to be played by Ryan, who becomes the prime suspect in a young boy's murder after he uncovers the body!

Gasp! He couldn't do it! He's Ryan fuh-reaking Phillippe! Sorry, we know it's just a TV show, but we're just so protective of Ryan! We'd like to uncover his body, if you know what we mean!

Ryan's hopefully soon-to-be character has his whole life on the line and no other option but to figure out who the killer is himself!

Well, as far as Ryan is concerned, he's a wanted man! We yearn for him to get that part!
