Kristen Bell is well aware of how most people see her: a funny, glowing, bursting ray of sunshine. Under the surface, however, the 35-year-old actress has struggled with depression and anxiety, which she opens up about in a refreshingly honest new interview.
"I'm extremely co-dependent," Bell told Off Camera with Sam Jones. "I shatter a little bit when I think people don't like me. That's part of why I lead with kindness and I compensate by being very bubbly all the time because it really hurts my feelings when I'm not liked. And I know that's not very healthy and I fight it all the time.”
Being popular in high school didn’t shield Bell from a struggle so many of us have faced at one time or another: Wanting so desperately to fit in and be liked by others.
"I changed who I was often. I changed my interests based on what my friends liked, and I didn't really realize until I was in my 30s that I had sort of changed for everybody," she continues. "I also struggled a lot with anxiety and depression.”
