Sharing her story! Dakota Johnson opened up about her struggle with depression in a new interview with Marie Claire, admitting that she’s been in therapy since she was a teenager. “That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, ‘Oh, this is a thing I can fall into,’ ” the 30-year-old actress explained.
“I have to do a lot of work to purge thoughts and emotions, and I am in a lot of therapy.” Instead of looking at her issues with mental health in a negative light, “I’ve learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world,” Dakota added. “I guess I have a lot of complexities, but they don’t pour out of me. I don’t make it anyone else’s problem.”
The Fifty Shades of Grey star “came clean in the hopes of helping other young people who might be suffering in silence,” says a source. “With help, there can be a light at the end of the tunnel.”
