Wow!! Who would of thought?
He's not the first funny person in entertainment to have dealt with depression and such in the past either. Someone else opened up about a year ago or so (totally forgot who, arghhh). Whenever celebrities open up about the struggles they've endured, it kind of... comforts me. Lets me know that we're not alone and that you truly truly trulyyyy never know what someone is really going through on the inside, even if they seem and look so perfect to you
I wish more people would open up about it. There must be heaps more.
A lot of comedians are self loathing and depressed. I have heard this about Letterman before--that he would go into tirades after taping shows thinking the show was horrible and such.
