Actress Kristen Bell opens up about depression

Actress Kristen Bell, the star of Veronica Mars and the voice of Princess Anna in Frozen, opened up about anxiety and depression on Off Camera with Sam Jones.

“I shatter a little bit when I think people don’t like me. That’s why I lead with kindness and I compensate with being very bubbly all the time. Because it really hurts my feelings when I’m not liked,” Bell told Off Camera.

Bell said that it wasn’t until recently that she realized how these fears changed her.

“I changed who I was often. I changed my interests based on what my friends liked. I didn’t realize that until I was in my thirties that I had sort of changed for everybody,” she said.

She was not afraid to speak about how she copes.

“I do a lot of introspective work. And I check in with myself when I need to exercise. I and, you know, got on a prescription  when I was really young to help with my anxiety and depression. And I still take it today and I have no shame in that.”
