Over the past decade, by my count this A+ list mostly movie actress who is an Academy Award winner/nominee has attempted suicide four times.
Those are the ones I know about.
I’m sure there were times when she was out of the country or stopped before she needed a doctor so the number is probably much higher.
Also higher is the number of times she has threatened to kill herself and her children.
One of her suicide attempts happened while she was pregnant. Another time she took one of her children into a very dangerous situation and threatened to kill herself and the child.
I remember the birthday suicide attempt.
Any kind of celebration that is not about her can turn into threats or attempts.
The thing is though, the one person who was always there and always able to talk her down is gone now.
It makes me wonder whether the next time it happens, if it will be the end.
