Letitia Wright was ''depressed and full of anxiety'' before she found fame.
The 'Black Panther' star admits she struggled with her mental health before she rose to fame as she felt the ''pressure to be accepted''.
She told W magazine: ''I was depressed and full of anxiety. I think it was that pressure to be accepted, to be somebody. When you're looking outside of yourself for happiness and validation, a mean comment on social media can wreck you. I was OK when I was on set, hiding behind my work, but when I wasn't acting I was full of fear and doubt, trying to fill this void inside of me any way I could: drinking, smoking. It was bad.''
Meanwhile, the 24-year-old actress previously confessed she almost gave up acting before she found God.
She said: ''Yeah I was going through a lot. A very difficult time in my life and I just needed to take a break from acting because I really idolised it. So I came off from it and I went on a journey to discover God and my relationship with God and I became a Christian and it really gave me so much love and life within myself and so much I felt secure and I felt I didn't need validation from anyone else or from getting a part. And my happiness wasn't dependent on that. It was dependent on my relationship with God. I am centred in who I am and I'm really grateful. I'm not perfect especially as a Christian you're not perfect but you're walking every day and trying to just stay connected and yeah it's helped me a lot and I'm really grateful.''
