Is she officially the world’s best celebrity or what?!
However, just because she’s known for her sweet demeanor doesn’t mean she’s always 100 percent confident on the inside… and that’s okay!
In fact, Kristen just dropped a truth bomb while appearing on Off Camera with Sam Jones recently where she brought up a lot of good points about society’s questionable views on mental health and depression.
Believe it or not, the mother-of-two admitted that she actually has a family history of mental illness and suffers from overwhelming anxiety herself, saying:
“I’m extremely co-dependent. I shatter a little bit when I think people don’t like me. That’s part of why I lead with kindness and I compensate by being very bubbly all the time because it really hurts my feelings when I know I’m not liked. And I know that’s not very healthy and I fight it all the time.”
We had no idea!
Luckily for Kris, it seems like Dax Shepard is the most supportive partner anyone could ask for.
But she didn’t just use her episode to talk about herself… she also touched upon the hypocritical differences in which people treat physical and mental ailments, saying:
“If you do decide to go on a prescription to help yourself, understand that the world wants to shame you for that, but in the medical community, you would never deny a diabetic his insulin. Ever. But for some reason, when someone needs a serotonin inhibitor, they’re immediately crazy or something.”
Hopefully more celebs will take a cue from Kristen and start opening up a conversation on mental health.
