'Jaws' star Richard Dreyfuss opens up about struggle with bipolar disorder

Washington, Nov. 12 : 'Jaws' star Richard Dreyfuss has shed light on his lifelong battle with bipolar disorder, asserting that there is no shame in having depression.


The Academy Award winner, who is travelling all over USA to elevate the discussion on depression, told People Magazine that by telling his own story, he hopes to help remove the stigma.

While explaining the fear he experienced before he received treatment for his disorder, the 66-year-old star said that it's like the night before the test and you aren't really sure about the subject and this balloon of self-loathing starts to swell up fast in anticipation of failure.

Dreyfuss added that he has lived with that feeling everyday and every minute for his entire life.

During his happy days, he said that he was thrilled with his life entirely too much.
