Kaley Cuoco opens up about her depression after her divorce

The actress has even started a therapy…

Kaley Cuoco, an American actress well known for her many roles on television such as The Big Bang Theory and The Flight Attendant, recently opened up about her depression that followed her divorce from her second husband, Karl Cook.

It was in September of last year that Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook ended their marriage, and the actress had a very difficult time following the separation. In an interview with Variety magazine, Kaley Cuoco explains that she threw herself headfirst into her work – she was filming the second season of The Flight Attendant – to the point where she was in total denial about what she was going through. Yet, this new separation caused her a lot of emotional damage, even leading her to depression.

To make matters worse for the actress, her character on The Flight Attendant is also experiencing major challenges in the second season, and playing the role has become a daily challenge for the actress. In her interview with Variety, she explains that she got to a point where she “couldn’t do it all,” and that’s when she decided to schedule an “intervention” with all the producers of the show. During this meeting, she confided in them about her situation and fortunately received a lot of support from the producers.

Because Kaley Cuoco felt like she couldn’t cope on her own, she sought out a therapist to help her navigate through all the emotions she was feeling as a result of the divorce and the intensive filming of the show.

Actors go through difficult times as well, and when they open up about their problems in this way, it helps to further break down the taboo around mental health, depression and anxiety.
