Ileana D'Cruz Opens Up On Having Suicidal Thoughts: 'I Hit A Really Low Point In My Life, It Wasn't Related To Body Issues'
Ileana D'Cruz is one of the most loved stars in Bollywood. She has successfully made a mark for herself in the industry. In a recent interview, Ileana opened up about her struggles with body image issues and suicidal thoughts. She said that she had been self-conscious about her body from a very young age. She also shared that there was a time in life when she had suicidal thoughts.

The actress had previously expressed her disappointment in an Instagram Live when a news article suggested that she had attempted to take her life due to body image issues. She cleared the rumours and clarified that she did not feel suicidal because she was insecure about her body.

She told Bollywood Hungama, "I came across an article, because many people messaged me that 'we didn't know this about you.' It was I think meant in good intent, but it annoyed me because a lot of stuff was taken out of context. Yes I've had body issues, from the time I was probably twelve, I was very self-conscious, that's one aspect."

She added, "The other aspect about the suicidal bit, it is a very sensitive topic, and there has been a time where I hit a really low point in my life, and it got to a situation where I was thinking about stuff, but it wasn't related to body issues. Those are two separate issues, so I didn't like the fact that they clubbed them together like that 'oh you know because she had body issues'. I said, 'no,' not to say that if somebody else is going through something like that, you should downplay it."

On the work front, Ileana will be seen in Unfair and Lovely opposite Randeep Hooda. She will also be seen in Shrisha Guha Thakurta with Vidya Balan and Pratik Gandhi.
