Helena Bonham Carter: I´ve been depressed and I might go insane

Helena Bonham Carter has admitted that she worries about going insane. “The Alice In Wonderland” star explained that several of her ancestors, including her mother, struggled with mental illness.

“There’s a good streak in our family of, I’d say, healthy insanity. My mother and, I know, my grandmother and my great-grandmother. I think it is very much genetic. I haven´t suffered yet, but I know there´s potential there,” Carter told The Times. She added that she has personally battled depression in the past.

“I´ve been depressed and I do not like it. I was definitely depressed when I was 18, wondering who I was. I was under a lot of scrutiny but I hadn’t worked out for myself whether I wanted to act. I felt very isolated because I was out of my peer group,” she said.

“I am not sure if the therapy helped,” she explained that she had therapy but is unsure how useful it was. “It just passed. It was fine. You find a way through it but it is hard, still, to talk about it.”
