Stephen Fry reveals he attempted suicide last year

Stephen Fry admitted that he tried to commit suicide last year, according to the Guardian. The incident took place while the actor and writer was filming outside his native U.K. “It was a close run thing,” Fry said on Monday night, while being interviewed by British comedian Richard Herring in front of an audience in London, for Herring’s podcast. “I took a huge number of pills and 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,” Fry said. “And, fortunately, the producer I was filming with at the time came into the hotel room and I was found in a sort of unconscious state and taken back to England and looked after.”

Fry, who has previously spoken about suffering from bipolar disorder, is president of the British mental-health charity Mind and told Herring that he regarded it as his duty to talk publicly about his own psychological issues. “The whole point in my role” he said, “is to be … forthcoming about the morbidity and genuine nature of the likelihood of death amongst people [with] certain mood disorders.”
