I was letting my thoughts take over and going to places of dramatic suicidal ideation. I called my wife and she said, ‘Get home.'”

    He continued, “And so I got home, went to a clinic for a couple weeks and looked into it, and haven’t been suicidal since — not for a moment. I needed a full reset.”

    He also added that he was burnt out from working so much, saying, “I had spent 15 years in this industry. You go to an audition or a red carpet and they don’t want, ‘Jared, how are you doing today?’ ‘Today was rough, I didn’t sleep.’ They want, ‘It’s great! Excited to be here!’”

I will forever smile on the years I got to spend with the cast and crew and studio and network and fandom that made this all possible.”
