Actor and comedian Wayne Brady may seem like he has it together, but after the death of fellow comedian Robin Williams earlier this year, Wayne revealed he, too, battles depression.
Though many people think he is always happy, last month the 42-year-old told Entertainment Tonight that’s simply not true.
“You don't want to move, you can't move in the darkness," he said.
"You're like, 'I am just going to sit right here and I want to wallow in this. As much as it hurts, I am going to sit right here because this is what I deserve.’”
Wayne said his lowest point was last June on his birthday, when he “had a complete breakdown.”
“That birthday was the beginning of, 'OK, I've got to make a change,’” he said.
The Whose Line is is Anyway? star is recovering, and said that accepting that he was depressed was the beginning of the journey.
"Just to admit that you are feeling this way is a huge step. To claim that, to say, 'Why do I feel dark? Why do I feel unhappy? Let me do something about this.'"
