Stephen Fry Discusses Attempting Suicide Last Year: VIDEO


In an interview with comedian Richard Herring at London’s Leicester Square Theater, British actor Stephen Fry spoke for the first time about a suicide attempt he made last year as a result of not looking after his depression with medication.

Said Fry:

"I’d go as far as to tell you I attempted it last year. I took a huge number of pills with a huge amount of vodka and the mixture of them made my body convulse so much that I broke four ribs. But I was still unconscious... Fortunately, the producer I was filming with at the time came into the hotel room and I was found in an unconscious state and taken back to England and looked after."

  1. The world would've been better off with one less racist to deal with.

  2. I know, but I couldn't smother you at birth. You were that hideous even a pillow couldn't block out your visage.

  9. Huh? Well THAT was inane and certainly in very bad taste "JMC", "JMC's mom" and "Sylvatica" [sigh]. No,Pedro, the WONDERFUL Stephen Fry is most certainly NOT a racist. As LiamB has pointed out that was just a mini flash mob of trolls. Good by and good riddance to them!!!

  10. Andy -- these comments are out of control.

    Please update the commenting system. It would deeply sadden me to think Stephen Fry could ever visit your site and see trolls publish deeply hateful comments.

  12. With that said though I did just come to the realization I mixed him up with someone else though. Oops.

  13. I wish I'd mixed your dad up with someone else :(

  14. Stephen Fry's appearance last week on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson was astounding. Just those two talking for the full hour. Wow. Fun, smart, witty. Search for it online and watch.

  15. Loved his novel, "The Liar." Hilarious. Check it out.

  16. So incredibly sad to hear that Stephen would find life so depressing that he would try to take his own life but it is understandable. Many people are plagued by depression and without medication it can overtake you. Thankfully he did not die and we still have him here today. What a loss it would be to lose him. He is an amazing and wonderful man.

  19. My straight friends puzzle over how intensely I dislike this man.

    I have bipolar disorder and depression, but I just find him creepy.

  20. Stephen, take your pills. We don't want to lose you!!
