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."
