Jim Carrey opens up about his battle with depression

"I had that for years, but now, when the rain comes, it rains, but it doesn’t stay"

Jim Carrey has discussed his battle with depression, saying that he is now “sometimes happy”.

The Ace Ventura and Bruce Almighty actor first opened up about his depression back in 2004, telling CBS News “there are peaks, there are valleys. But they’re all kind of carved and smoothed out, and it feels like a low level of despair you live in. Where you’re not getting any answers, but you’re living OK. And you can smile at the office. You know? But it’s a low level of despair. You know?”

Carrey has once again addressed his mental health in a new interview, revealing that his depression “doesn’t stay long enough to immerse me” any more.

“At this point, I don’t have depression,” Carrey told the i. “There is not an experience of depression.

“I had that for years, but now, when the rain comes, it rains, but it doesn’t stay. It doesn’t stay long enough to immerse me and drown me anymore.”
