As the month of May is celebrated as the Mental Health awareness, Fifty Shades actress Dakota Johnson comes out openly about dealing with depression from the age of 15. In an interview with a Hollywood magazine, Dakota said, "I've struggled with depression since I was young—since I was 15 or 14," she recalled to the magazine. "That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, Oh, this is a thing I can fall into."
Adding further, "I've learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world. 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." Before Dakota, many other Hollywood celebrities like Selena Gomez, Lili Reinhart, and others, opened up about struggling with similar issues. In an interview earlier, Dakota also revealed that her mind moves a million miles per second and she's learning to control it through therapy sessions. "I have to do a lot of work to purge thoughts and emotions, and I am in a lot of therapy.
The 30-year old actress also opened up about why she started her own production company TeaTime Pictures. "For a long time, I’d do a movie and have no say,” she said. “I could go into something, and it’ll be one thing, and then it comes out as a totally different thing. As an artist, you’re like, ‘What the fuck?’ I definitely want to have my craft, my artistry, and my ideas respected and tossed around. I want to be part of the process. I also have a really specific taste.”
