Dakota Johnson opens up about her struggle with depression

For Dakota Johnson, there's a silver lining to her struggle with depression. In a newly published interview for Marie Claire as the cover girl, the Fifty Shades star got personal as she opened up about her years-long experience with depression. "I've struggled with depression since I was young," she recalled. "That was when, with the help of professionals, I was like, Oh, this is a thing I can fall into." However, "I've learned to find it beautiful because I feel the world," she noted. "I guess I have a lot of complexities, but they don't pour out of me. I don't make it anyone else's problem." Elsewhere in the interview, the star shared that her brain "moves at a million miles per minute." "I have to do a lot of work to purge thoughts and emotions, and I am in a lot of therapy," Johnson said. She spoke of dealing with crippling anxiety in a 2015 interview with AnOther Magazine, explaining, "Sometimes I panic to the point where I don't know what I'm thinking or doing. I have a full anxiety attack." Johnson elaborated, "I have them all the time anyway, but with auditioning it's bad."
