“If a really good comedian isn’t depressed,” Bob Saget once said “something’s wrong.” Jim Carrey is no exception. He's battled depression for most of his life, taking antidepressants for a while, but he eventually learned to live without them.
In 2004, he described life off meds on 60 Minutes: "There are peaks, there are valleys. But they're all kind of carved and smoothed out, and it feels like a low level of despair you live in. Where you're not getting any answers, but you're living OK. And you can smile at the office. You know? But it's a low level of despair."
