Kirsten Dunst reveals battle with depression
Kirsten Dunst revealed Monday that she
checker herself in earlier this year to an exclusive rehabilitation center to
battle depression rather than an addiction to alcohol or drugs, dpa reported.
"I didn't go to Cirque Lodge for alcohol abuse or drug abuse," Dunst told a reporter for Entertainment TV. "I went there for depression."
The 26-year-old Hollywood star said it took her six months to make the decision. "I was struggling, and I had the opportunity to go somewhere and take care of myself," she said. "I was fortunate to have the resources to do it.
Dunst said she was going public with the medical matter to put an end to rumours about her personal problems and to shine a spotlight on the fact that depression can strike anyone.
"We're all in the same boat together," she said. "Depression is pretty serious and should not be gossiped about."
