The List! Celebrities who have been known to indulge in self-harming!
Normally, individuals never harm themselves deliberately. But there are some who hurt themselves for various reasons. This is not accidental but deliberate. It is a manifestation of a psychological underplay and when severe it could also point to a psychiatric cause.
There are some celebrities who had suffered and struggled with this problem in their lifetime. Some have bravely opened up about their disorder and have overcome it while there are some who continue to intermittently indulge in this behavior.
The list of celebrities who had this problem include:
Thirty-year-old Megan Fox from Tennessee is a brilliant actress and model. She was queried on this behavior by Rolling Stone Magazine. She admitted to the fact that she indeed used to once upon a time self-harm by cutting.
She had said:
“Yeah, but I don’t want to elaborate. I would never call myself a cutter. Girls go through different phases when they’re growing up, when they’re miserable and do different things, whether it’s an eating disorder or they dabble in cutting.”
Self-infliction of wounds is not limited to females. The famed actor Johnny Depp too was a victim of this psychological disorder. He has old healed scars on his boy of this self-infliction when he was young. Justifying his acts, Johnny Depp had said:
“My body is a journal in a way. It’s like what sailors used to do, where every tattoo meant something, a specific time in your life when you make a mark on yourself, whether you do it yourself with a knife or with a professional tattoo artist.”
This famous actress from California and the ex-wife of well-known Hollywood actor Brad Pitt used to suffer from this disorder during her growing years. She used to cut and hurt herself often during her teens. In an interview given to Parade Magazine, Angelina Jolie had admitted to her this disorder and elaborated on it.
She had said:
“I used to cut myself or jump out of airplanes, trying to find something new to push up against because sometimes everything else felt too easy.”
Another male star who suffered from this self-harming disease was Russell Brand. He also had an eating disorder and bulimia. This English comedian and actor has shared about this disorder with his fans and viewers and also posts videos on YouTube wherein he had talked about it and how to deal with the disorder.
He used to do this while under the influence of heroin and other drugs. He calls it self-sabotage. He as a teenager used to regularly slash his arms till the blood flowed. He used to use broken glass pieces to lacerate his chest. As if this was not enough, he used to also indulge in more frightening injuries. He has laid down all about this in his autobiography titled My Booky Wook. He also is reported to be suffering from sex addictions.
Lindsay Lohan has never spoken in public about her self-harming tendency. She has quietly endured it all and never mentioned about it in any of her interviews. But people have suspected that she suffers from self-destruction after noticing several cut scars on her arms.
The New Yorker has never opened up about this medical problem. It is not known whether she has sought any medical intervention and therapy for it. She probably might have!
