After Deepika and Alia actress Ileana D’Cruz too talk about her depression!
Depression has become very common disorder these days. Young generation now – a- days has become very sensitive and therefore remains more prone to depression. Actress Ileana D’Cruz opened up about battling depression and body dysmorphic disorder at the start of her career in the latest advertisement of a denim brand. She recently shared a snippet of the ad on Instagram and captioned it: “Unapologetic.
Unfiltered. Imperfect This is me, Flaws and all.” The 29-year-old actress, who was last seen in Bollywood film Baadshaho opposite Ajay Devgan, said that for the longest time she never knew she had a body image issues and when she started her career in films, ‘it just made it a little bit worse.’
Well, if we talk about Body Dysmorphic Disorder, so people with BDD can dislike any part of their body, although they often find fault with their hair, skin, nose, chest, or stomach. In reality a perceived defect may be only a slight imperfection. But for someone with BDD, the flaw is significant and prominent, often causing severe emotional distress and difficulties in daily functioning.
Ileana shared her phase of depression!
Mostly teens are affected by this disorder. Ileana was quoted saying, “I was the shy, self-conscious person once I hit my teens. I was constantly hit on for my body type. The obsession started when I was 15. My entire life goal was to be accepted by everyone. I think that’s what I wanted the most. I never got it.” Barfi fame actress was quoted saying that the acceptance is the first step to overcome depression.
She further added, “I never expected to be someone who’d be dealing with anxiety, dealing with depression. I’ve got every possible thing I could want. And I wondered, ‘Why am I so depressed?’ I still don’t know sometimes. Then they told me you have depression, you have anxiety, you are going through body dysmorphic disorder. There was an acceptance which almost came immediately and that I think is one of the biggest steps that you can take towards change. You can’t move forward otherwise.”
Before Ileana a lot of other actresses had came forward to talk about their depression and Deepika Padukone was one of them.
